Kind of both - it's great to have the classics on a bookshelf so I can look at them and remember them - but also to have them on a Kindle means I can have them either with me or on my Kindle PC which is on my lap top wherever I am. And also, I'll often when I'm writting thing of something from one of my favs, and with Kindle with me I can find it.

Does this make me indecisive?

On my kindle because I love taking my whole library everywhere everywhere I go.  However, I always buy an actual book of my all time favorites!

For the most part I want all my leisure reading books as e-books so I don't need bookshelves (or more than one small one) in my place since I live in a small condo.

The only thing I really prefer paper books for are my academic books for work as I need to flip through quickly and mark them up etc.--space isn't as much an issue here as I have plenty of bookshelves in my campus office.  Aside from that, I just have a few favorites I don't want to waste money rebuying as ebooks.  Only paper books for leisure reading I've bought since getting a Kindle is a hardcover illustrated set of Lord of the Rings.

It depends on the book. Some I'm okay with having on my Kindle. Others that I like to reread I have a few of the fancy hardbound editions to line up on my shelf.

I love the old, Penguin covers ...some of the foxed editions with yellowing papers and an aged feel, give reading the classics that extra dimesions...but for practicality, KINDLE wins!
