Why are people so against them? I don't understand it. I've had my kindle for months and I've read somewhere around 20 books on it. Each book cost me $0.10 USD. I've downloaded 56 to read. They cost ten cents because of the download fee on the shop I use. They were free other than that. The average of that is $1.87 per book, counting the reader's actual cost of $99.00. The readers may cost a lot, but they save you money in the long run. Especially if you pirate, which I've only done on books I own hard copies of. This isn't illegal as far as I know. I can understand people liking having a hard copy, but there's nothing really wrong with having an e-reader. Another thing I like about having them: If a book falls in water, you need to buy a whole new copy, but with an e-reader (at least the one I have) you can go to the store and re-download it for free and read it on your computer. I really enjoy that. It's kind of like having an insurance policy on your books. And if you want a new e-reader, the price on the books won't go up too much higher. That's all I really have to say on this topic since it isn't too expansive, but I thought I should post about it because I'm apparently the oddball out on this. Well, I hope you guys try your best to have a decent day. See you on Wednesday!
