I think it would be nice to have...no more waiting for books from Amazon to arrive and no worry about torn pages. LOL you could even read whatever you like with nobody knowing what book you are reading.

Its too darn expensive though! $349

I'd be too afraid I'd break it or something.

I like reading my books the old fashioned way.
I love the smell of new books, and having a device like that would defeat the purpose. I know, I'm weird.

I don't think I'd ever buy it. If it was given to me as a gift, then cool.

I agree I like the feel of books & not the smell so much, but the feeling in bookstores & libraries. I haven't decided if I'd ever buy that or not...I like the portability and that it can hold more than one book. The price would have to drop at least $300 for me to consider it though.

No I don't think I would. I like going to the library or to book stores and I just love holding a actual book and reading it

NEVER! I don't want to worry about batteries, broken devices and the weight of an electronic gadget. I like the portability of a regular book. I like being able to get the titles I want whenever I want. I like turning pages!
