My sister gave me a Kobo reader for my birthday last year. While I
prefer hardcopy books, she made the excellent point that given how much
I read combined with the comparatively small size of the unit I live in,
it would save space. The start off present included a random collection
of classics which were available for free, plus for Christmas she
downloaded what looked like every single Dr Who book ever published up
to that point, plus I've grabbed a number of role-playing game supplements,
Overall it looks like I am using my e-reader the same way I use a hardcopy
library book: I'll read it, and if it's a book that really interests me
I'll go and buy my own hardcopy, but otherwise there's not much point in
keeping a space-consuming copy of my own.
