As a lover of printed books for many years, I will not quit purchasing them in that form. I appreciate the illustrations and the ease of just picking up a book to read and share with family.
Having said that, I can see uses for digital books also. I commuted by MAX and bus for a number of years and used a PDA and Microsoft Reader formatted books for some time. It was really easy to use that format. it was open for all as a free download from Microsoft and there was and is still a lot of free content. I especially enjoyed the old classics that were being digitized by Project Gutenburg. Some of the content was in Microsoft Reader format and others that was in Text format could easily be converted. The content in Microsoft Reader format could be bookmarked, hilighted and easily referenced. The reader text is easy to use either on a laptop or a PDA with windows Mobile operating system and can be resized to large, easy to read font.
