I have a feeling that old-fashioned paper-and-ink books will be around forever. There's just something uniquely wonderful about holding a book and turning the pages. But that doesn't mean you can't also have a ton of digital books filling up your digital shelves.
I like e-books for their convenience - it makes your entire library portable. You can make notes, search the text, and you'll never damage them, lose them or wear them out.
If you're interested in getting into e-books, you've probably already heard about the Kindle. Amazon is the biggest name in e-reading and Amazon's Kindle is the most popular e-reader on the planet.
But it's not just a physical gadget for reading books on the go. It's also a fully functional and free computer program.
