Because I've run out of room for paper books, I've had to switch to e-books. Good thing e-books exist these days because there's no way I'd ever give up books!

I'm still old school. I like paper books. If I could get an e-reader free, I may change my mind, but I can't see spending over $100 for one and then having to still buy the books to read on it. And, yes, I will be going to the sale. Can't wait.
