Now, don't get me wrong. I love the physically of books. I love the artwork in beautiful illustrations and gilded edges, but that certainly doesn't apply to things like paperback novels and dictionaries.
I'm a single gal, and I often bring a book to read when I go by myself to a restaurant. It makes me feel like I'm dining with friends. But the books that I bring get all dog-eared, and the bindings wear out. Just the other day, I had an old paperback almost break in half because the binding was shot.
I know that it means re-buying a book, but there are several that I've already bought two or three times because they wore out. What's one more time? Especially, when the Kindle price is about the same as any other paperback (even large reference works).
I did tell you that I'm in love. ;)
