A few thoughts on E-readers.
They are going to be big. I guarantee it. They won't completely do away with the book but they'll be a good alternative for many of us who like to read and not just put books up on a wall.
This article on e-readers gives you an idea of why it's taken a little while for the market to take off: the critical mass needed to ensure demand can outstrip supply has taken a while but now Amazon are selling the products overseas (Kindle) and the other competitors are coming up with decent alternatives, then the market is poised to grow rapidly!
I'm not a technophile by any means but one of these will be on my shopping list for sure mainly for convenience and space saving reasons. Let's hope you can get some decent titles quickly.
