I've read ebooks before off my computer. Don't think I would like a steady diet of them though. To adapt an old saying, "They'll have to pry my books from my cold dead hands!"

I'm an old-fashioned book guy too. The Kindle looks pretty book-like when you're reading it, but I don't usually have to have 100 books with me wherever I go, so there's no advantage to it over having a real book.
And since Amazon can apparently drop in whenever they want and take away things you already paid for, that's another reason to keep away from it. Who knows what else they can do? Change the text of something? Add things you didn't ask for? No thanks.
