I, personally, dont miss holding a book.

I have never been a fan of paperback books. It seems that most of the books I gravitate towards tend longer. It seems I was always trying to crack the spine on a paperback to get it to open far enough to be readable.

For this reason, most of my reading has been in "hard cover" format.

Also....I rarely read in the typical reading position. I'm almost never sitiing in a chair with a book in my lap. I tend to read laying down....on my side...one leg over the arm of the chair....you get the idea.

I had not realized how difficult it is to hold a hard cover book when in one of these positions until I started reading on an ereader.You can turn the page with a touch of your finger. An ereader weighs less than most books. It is held in one hand.

Keep in mind that I started with the Sony Reader prior to getting my Kindle. Had the Sony had better contrast settings and been able to accomodate larger fonts....I would not have changed. While I truly love my Kindle...my Sony Reader was equally loved. If comparing the two side by side....I believe the Kindle has more checks in the Pro column that the Sony...but I never would have changed has the Sony been a workable solution. The Sony was available before the Kindle and that was the reason for my original choice.

I can list several reasons why the Kindle works better for me.

- I can enlarge the font.
- I dont have to store the pyhsical books.
- I can book shop 24 hours a day
- I can take several books when I travel
- I can hold the Kindle in one hand
- I can fit the Kindle in a pocket
- I can buy two best sellers for the price of one regular book
- I can store all of the books I have purchsed and read on Amazon's server
and recall them at any time.

This is a perfect option for me. Holding a physical book doesnt mean that much to me....and if it ever does...I can always buy a a regular book. I dont have to make a choice. I can have both.

Hope this helps.
