I'm not surprised, and I have no plans to get any sort of eReader. I love the feel and smell of real books ;-)

Though I admit it might be useful for a long holiday trip during which you spend many hours travelling by plane etc... because it's easier to carry in a handbag, this is the ONE AND ONLY situation which would lead me to buy any e-book. I don't share just my name with Sylvia (which, incidentally, comes from the Latin word silva which means "forest"...), I also share her POV about the feel and smell of paper books. I love to discover a new smell of a newly-printed book, as much as I love the feeling of browsing the pages of a worn-out volume already read (touched and maybe loved) by a dozen people before me.

Digital..... I guess real books more interesting than e-book.
Thanks Locan.
