When I first got my Kindle, I went of a crazy ass buying spree. Then I bought a Nook Simple Touch because it was smaller, easier to hold, and use. I bought a metric shit ton of books from BN too. I ended up using Calibre to store my books. I'd found a way to strip off the DRM and store them in Calibre so that it didn't matter whether I was using my Kindle or Nook, I could read them wherever I wanted.
I still love my Nook. It's great for traveling, wonderful to have when I need a new book but aren't near a bookstore, and awesome for reading book samples before buying the whole thing. However, in the last year, I noticed that I've reverted to buying more paper books than e-books again, and I'm not sure why.
I love reading e-books, but there's something about owning the book that appeals to me. Even though I don't have the time to read like I did as a boy, and I don't reread books as often, I still have this need to own them. The e-books just don't hold the same sexiness of a paper book.
Now, maybe that's just some bullshit nostalgia, but maybe not. I mean, One of my favorite parts of visiting other cities is browsing used bookstores and uncovering awesome finds. You can't do that with e-books.
So, I'm curious: now that the e-book thing has settled down, do those of you who read e-books find that you're buying more or them or less?
