I am a book lover and was very reluctant to buy an e-reader. But I did. I bought a kindle and I absolutely love it. It's easy to set up and operate, and it's made so that the screen looks like paper, there is absolutely no glare so you can read anywhere. Also, it's not backlit, so you need a lamp, just like with a book. It also holds 3000 books, so I can change my mind when I get to the doctor's office, airport, etc. and read what I feel like reading.
