I recently came across a very interesting survey about the reading of e-books being on the rise. It's an academic survey, but I can't help feeling like the findings translate (or will soon) to recreational reading.
You can read about it here on my blog. (This will open in a new window.)
I enjoy reading e-books - a lot. In fact, I'm going to be reading Middlemarch electronically, via Gutenberg.org.
There was a time (not too long ago actually) when if you'd asked me if I enjoyed reading electronically, I'd have told you, "no way." I just loved being surrounded by my (thousands of) books.
I still love my books, although I'm willing to part with a few these days...but the convenience of carrying several around with me at a time has been really eye-opening.
How about you?
