@bainbrge: I think the plus points of an e-Book reader are potentially as follows:|
1. Portability. Having all of your books with you at
all times. Like what the ipod did for me and music.
2. Reference material: Having all of your reference books with
you, and being able to access them with ease... For example, looking through a dictionary for a word electronically).
3. Being able to underline, highlight, add notes in the
margin, add multiple bookmarks for pages/quotes etc.
4. Being able to have news papers/comics/periodicals
or whatever sent to you wirelessly the moment they're
5. Environmentally and economically: Think of all of the savings to
your wallet (legally or illegally) and the paper that doesn't have to
be produced/transported now.
I could probably think of more reasons, but these are the main ones that have me so excited about the potential of the medium.
