I have a severe shortage of space, and this has driven me to switch to ebooks. What takes a whole wall of floor to ceiling bookshelves in paper form fits on a fingernail sized chip in digital form, and that's just too big a difference for me to continue passing up. Been unloading my collection of SF/Fantasy paperbacks at the used book store as I find ebook replacements. Of course, need a device and power to read an ebook, but I don't see that as a stopper any more. Lots of people claim they like paper better, like the feel of it, and find it easier on the eyes. Those sound like excuses. Flat screens and other viewing tech are extremely good these days, and will only get better. For instance, might get flexible screens in a few more years. One real problem is the poor quality of many ebooks. Sometimes they're not even formatted properly. Might have paragraphs and chapters all run together, or no quote marks around speech. Many were OCRed and not proofread afterwards, and so you see lots of errors that are typical of OCR, such as 'm' in place of "rn". But that I think can only improve. I've cleaned up several myself. Can't fix an error in a paperback so easily. Most of all, ebooks gives me more access. I have been reading more SF lately. Whenever I'm stuck somewhere, waiting on something, just pull out my phone and read a few more lines. Have hundreds of books on my phone.
