I do not have an ebook reader, why? well i have probably good reasons written down already as to choice (not just of content) and tax on e books.
Recently i had to buy books and the option to get ‘electronic’ access via clouds and as pdfs with the zoos address in on every page being untrustworthy or something . I declined and opted for paper only.
Although i have a light computer, and i can get code samples of the book for free the ebook had no appeal and the one i did buy at heavily discounted rates with the paper version is sitting on the hard disk unread.
I don’t hate the idea of an ebook and ebook reader. Just theres too many monopolies in waiting, and tax that the paper version does not have makes it a deal breaker. OK i might have saved some money with the ebook only version but the paper version seemed a little more convenient despite the availability of ‘now’ that the ebook also offered.
I the idea behind ebooks and think great, then i see tax and restricted choice. Perhaps i might come back when both are removed.
