I do not buy CD's anymore, neither do I buy DVD's or Blu-ray's anymore. The iTunes Store is cheaper and you can enjoy immediate purchase! But I still buy books. I got about 200 books. For those here who read a lot of books, would you even consider leaving the physical books to only read ebooks on the iPad? I could see so many advantages in ebooks (called iBooks) on the iPad: - Immediate purchase, - Cheaper price, - Being able to have all my books when I travel, - Not having to transport heavy boxes of books when I move in a new house, - The instant dictionnary, - Searching content, - Bookmars in color! The biggest complain is, of course, that reading on a screen is not that good compared to reading a real book. And reading outside (at the beach and/or in a sunny environment) should be far better with an actual book. Then, there is a second part that I think is interesting. For novels, I think that real books are better. But for books about your work (technology/finance/school, etc.), I think that iBooks is definitely the way to go! Because it's really not the same. It's not like a novel where you see the "movie" unfolding in front of your eyes. With the later, you go back and forth, you read a chapter here, then here, you highlight this, etc. So, both methods have their good and bad points. But since we won't buy all the books we have in real books AND iBooks, which format will you choose in the future?
