Before you even consider buying one, you need to ask yourself one question first:
“Can I buy books I want to read?”
Take the last 10 titles you bought and go search for them on an eBook store, like amazon, Waterstones or Borders. I’ll save you the trouble – most of them won’t be available. Whilst you’re there, take a look at the prices. Ridiculously overpriced aren’t they? Until the publishing industry gets on board, I can’t recommend buying one to anyone.
Even though I’m already an owner, it just isn’t worth it.
So if you want to buy an iPad or Kindle for reading, do yourself a favour and by a book 🙂
