    Nah. I like books. Everything else can go digital, but there is something magical about the smell of ink and paper.

    No, sometimes I go outside and sit under a tree and read my book to get away from the tv, comp., stereos, etc. in my house. I want to get away from all those distractions.

It's sitting on a shelf in my room covered in dust already. She's already said she doesn't mind if I just decide to sell it, but I've just been too lazy to put an ad on Craigslist.


    Anybody want to buy a paper white Kindle that's only been used for like 1 hour total?
    Depends. With ads or without?

    Do not think I could go completely digital. Modern technology has its place, so does old school technology. I'll use a Kindle for convenience , but treasured books must be paper. Do enjoy audiobooks, as it allows multi-tasking. Computers allow contact world wide- much better than smoke signals.

    I honestly don't know or remember. I didn't realize some of these things have ads on them and some don't.

    Call me silly if you want, but it sounds medically unhealthy to me to keep adding more and more electronics to our lives. When I think of it, I have visions of invisible electronic waves bombarding my body from every angle, 24/7. Also, it would mess up my style of decorating to have lots of electronics around. I like the turn-of-the century (19th to 20th) arts and crafts look. I tell you, I have to keep working harder and harder to remain in the past!

    Yeah, it's $20 more without the ads. I begrudge the reading real estate they would take up.

    I am very much considering buying a Paperwhite because I don't like the clip-on reading lights, my lamp keeps my husband awake, and a backlit technology like a monitor or iPad is hard on my eyes (I already have to look at that all day; the Paperwhite uses a different technology so that the light actually shines down on the e-ink rather than out into your eyes). It would be PERFECT for night reading. Generally I have my Kindle, a nonfiction book or two, and a fiction book or two stacked on my bedside table. I want to switch out my regular Kindle for a Paperwhite; I think the regular Kindle will go into the guest room, on the little bookshelf we have in there with the rest of the books.

    No way. I currently avoid going as digital as possible. I like to actually touch my things.
