I've played around with a few e-reader devices, and I must say they are not for me. It was no shocker, really. I like feeling the book and seeing how far its come and how much is left.

But I did give it a try (if you are the e-reader type please click here for a variety of titles to peruse for your little book-on-a-screen). Reading without an e-reader is worth finding new creative ways to shelf my books on a limited budget. And carrying them around, too.
