E-books suck, I'll stick to my REAL books.
Books suck, I'll stick to my REAL scrolls.
Scrolls suck, I'll stick to my REAL stone tablets.
Stone tablets stuck, I'll stick to my REAL wall paintings.
Wall paintings sucks, I'll stick to my REAL verbal statements to express stories.
You people are setting back technology with this whole "e-books sux!1" shit.
Unless you have a legitimate reason that isn't "the new book smell ogm!1!1!381937" or "ThE CIRNkLING oF THE PAPER lAsstS 4EVR1!!!!" then please present it to me otherwise you're just a sentimental nutcase like those stupid fucking nostalgiafags who cry over every new generation of Pokemon.
Suck it up.
I don't say they suck, or can't be handy
I just don't see their advantage...And if something's not an improved version of something old, why replace the old thing? (now I reread this, it sounds kind of confusing, but now clue how to reprhase it better)
Of course, you could say something along the lines of 'You don't have to kill complete forests for Kindles' but on the other hand, those things do need energy and how do you get that?
For me, the advantage is that I could be carrying around a hundred books and yet I'm hardly carrying anything. Whenever I finish a book I can start a new one right away and I don't have to wait until I go home or get to a bookshop or anything. It comes in handy when I have to wait somewhere for a while.
I guess XD But I can't read somewhere outside of my house
Really, I get so sucked in by a book that I wouldn't even notice if my house was on fire
So the whole 'handy when on the move' argument just doesn't work for me (no seriously, you shouldn't let me read in public, I won't move for hours)
Kindles barely use any energy. And it's all the little things that make it better.
Lightweight, less bulky, less expensive books and free classics, built in dictionary, massive amount of memory, and almost instant downloads.
And how are they produced? Though you could ask the same about books
I tried it, I really don't find them to have much of an advantage, generally
I like them both. I wouldn't say one is better than the other though.
I love my Kindle and I don't understand why people hate them, but I still love owning books and having them on my bookshelf. I like to show off what I've read.
People think it makes them look cool to reject ebook readers. Some people had the same reaction when the iPod came out. Soon, Kindles and books will coexist peacefully.
Thank you, Derp McNoWays.
No, it's against the rules.
Kindles are useful, but they don't give me the same feeling as reading a physical book does.
Agreed. I love my Kindle, but there's nothing like reading from a real book.
I wanted a Kindle for Christmas and I got one, but.. the books are so expensive. It isn't as cool as I thought it would be. I never have any money to buy books for it, so it just sits on my bed all day dead. I've touched it maybe 10 times since I got it. I know it sounds selfish because people out there want one so bad but can't have one. My mom is always like "How's that Kindle Court? Liking it?" uhh.. sure.. I think I'm just gonna say "screw it" and give it to her. -_- I'll just stick with my paper books.
A lot of the books are cheaper, if not free, on the Kindle. Maybe it depends on the book, I guess.
"We need to make books cool again. If you go home with somebody and they don't have books, don't fuck them." - John Waters
This post sums up how I feel about this.
Kindles are horrible. I can't even tell you how much I dislike them. It doesn't give the same feeling as an actual book. I'd be constantly scared of someone trying to steal mine or I'd worry that I'd somehow break it.
