Even though I'm really digging my Kindle, I'm still going to be buying paper books. There are books I want to read that aren't Kindle, and there are books I'll read that I can pass along to someone else in my circle of family and friends.
I still pick up paper books when I can get what I want for considerably less. Many books I will just read once and then never pick up again, so I don't mind getting a copy from the used book store. Tha books I love, or know I will read again, I get for my Kindle, sometimes even if I have a paper copy.
Yes, I still do for two main reasons. I will buy used books if I can't get them on Kindle or if they are cheaper than Kindle (even tho I do PREFER to read them on Kindle). I also collect rare, valuable books so I do still buy those. Those are a bit more expensive than Kindle books.
This is how sick I am... I have a collectible of a certain book (A signed first/first) and I won't read it because I don't want to damage it. So... I went and bought it on Kindle to read instead. Actually, I've done that twice now. What's wrong with me?
I still read DTB's. haven't brought any recently, but I do visit the library still (visited three times this week already lol). I'm also into manga (japanese comics) and I like reading those in DTB version. Time to time I'll find a best seller (maybe a older best seller) for a dollar or two at the library and I'll purchase it, but those usually don't leave my house once they come in the door unless I give them away to someone else that will love them.
Definitely not. I plan to buy only Kindle books. It is very convenient to me since I live in a small town where there is no local book store and I don't like waiting for books in the mail. I read a lot but don't like to have books cluttering up my house. I generally only want to keep first or signed editions of my favorite books.
No Way! Just finished reading a DTB that I had and didn't want to buy on kindle - my shoulder has frozen up - again - a problem with DTBs. That being said I have left over 600 DTBs that I am slowly trying to pass on.
My book club has only DTBs and I am trying to think of a way to graciously get out of it - they are not near as much fun as this group anyway.
So far I have not been drinking anything when I read BJ or EV posts - and keep both feet on the floor so I don't fall out of my chair
Personally, I am not planning on any DTB paperback or hardback...that being said, I am still open to purchasing one if I am at a used bookstore or happen upon a sale. The weekend ofter next, the LR Main library is having their basement book sale and my co workers want me to go with them, but I almost don't want to go since I have so many books in "queue" on my Kindle that I will be busy for a bit...but, I'll prob go......
Received my Kindle last April. Haven't bought a paper book since. Two weeks before my Kindle was ordered DH and I had been a Boarders and spent a lot of $. I faithfully finished those books but now I look at them and wonder what to do with them (I still hate parting with a book).
I received 2 paperbacks (available in Kindle format) the same day I received my new Kindle. :S
I also have another 4 or 5 books pre-ordered from Amazon. I'll keep at least one of them, as I want the first ed. hardbound for my collection. The other 4, depends on the book. I will probably end up canceling the paper editions for now, then ordering them again if they aren't out quickly in Kindle format (each of them will be the latest in a series, otherwise I would wait patiently for Kindle only.)
