I have a few books on my iphone, one of them Ive been trying to read since december. I don't know how people can avidly read on a machine.

Some of the issues I have with it....
It gives me eye strain.
Why would I pay £7 for a book thats not even real when I could have a physical, real, edible copy for the same price.
I can't pass an ebook on to a friend who I think might like it after I've read it.

And the best bit, no I don't want to tweet about finishing a book. I don't phone and text all of my friends everyday I've read the whole of the metro, so why would I even want to tweet about it?

  1. good points!
    imagine the second hand 'ebook' market - where would that take place? no curious shops with dark corners and dusty shelves full of beautifully (and not so beautifully) bound tomes for less that a paper note....
    keep the p (for paper)book alive!!!!
