Kinda reminds me of when I started replacing my favorite cassettes with CD's. This could get expensive.
Absolutely! If they're on Kindle and it was a book I really liked I bought it for my Kindle. I gave my sister a Kindle last summer. She likes a lot of the same books I do. She's under my account and we have almost 700 books to share.Forster said:
That's what I'm finding, that and it's really nice to have all your books available at your fingertips. I had some misgivings prior to buying my kindle 2 as to whether I would like it or no as I'm quite attached to my DTBs (I have never sold a book I've bought). Now I question whether I will buy another DTB.intinst said:Once you get used to the Kindle it just seems to be too much work to read the DTB.
I agree - too expensive. I only have duplicates where the kindle version was free. But I have so much new material to read, that I haven't felt the need to re-visit the old favorites in a while, anyway.Forster said:
We have a thread for requesting books you want on Kindle.WalterK said:I would repurchase if Amazon would acquire Kindle versions of their works. Still waiting for tons of previously read / owned material to make it to Kindle.
Exactly.WalterK said:Probably more than I should.
One of the main reasons that I purchased a Kindle was to reduce the physical clutter in my home by eliminating hard copies of new book purchases. With approximately 2,000 DTBs storage space has become an issue. I've been replacing some books with Kindle versions; mostly with favorite authors / works. Previously owned works acquired on Kindle is still a small percentage of the books I own but every little bit helps when reducing clutter.
There are undoubtedly more series / authors I would repurchase if Amazon would acquire Kindle versions of their works. Still waiting for tons of previously read / owned material to make it to Kindle.
Yup, I sure am. That way I can free up some room on my book shelves for ones I want to collect, like signed first editions.Forster said:
