Just read a review of an e-Reader

Apart from the usual technical stuff, there was also a comment that it was slightly better value than another which could only store about 3,000 books.

The price differential was about a tenner.

Totally ignoring the consideration that it would probably cost £18,000.oo to fill it with books. That is assuming one wanted books written by proper Authors in the last 75 years.

I think that I shall carry on using the library, until either DC or NS closes it.

I don't use dedicated e-readers any more.

I find a suitably sized tablet, with a free e-reader application, more than adequate, with the added bonus of TV, radio, film and television!

Most of them come with a memory card which will store sufficient books for a half decent reference library.

I agree with morddwyd.

You can get a Kindle App and many other Apps that will enable you to use just about any Tablet or PC/Laptop to read electronic books. You don't need a separate E-Reader.

I use both as trying to read a book on a tablet in bright sun on a beach doesn't work whereas on a Kindle e reader it does and easy to sync between the two.

I agree with Al94 tablets are'nt suitable for reading in bright sulight and my kindle batteries will last a couple of weeks or more.

I have about 4 and a half thousand e books but only keep 20 or so on the kindle.
