Ebooks: Good for taking down to the station to await the return of young zombies, Bad for reading in bed. Good for books you want to catch up on but don’t want to pay too much for, bad for something I think I might seriously Love. Confession: bought Terry Pratchett’s I shall Wear Midnight as an ebook, mostly because I didn’t want to pay $50 for it. Hole in theory: TP is much much better than the hard copy book I just bought at the bookstore, hoping to hide it in the credit card purchase of textbooks. BUT there’s no way I would buy something like Audrey Niffenegger’s The Night Bookmobile as an ebook. (OK, moot point as she doesn’t like to epublish)
But if they can somehow get the pictures to move….? Then all bets are off.
