But power can be restored – burnt book = ashes!!!!

Right. Throw water on it instead!

And burnt kindle = melted components!!!

How about joining the 21st/22nd century or are you as old as the reptiles in the U.S.A.

Oh wow, have to resort to bullying and personal attacks to push you point? There are most definitley advantages to both. EVERYONE is allowed to have their own opinion and it doesn’t have to match yours.

I can drop a book on the ground and pick up where I left off

For a very selfish reason, my eyes are healthier reading books than squinting my way through kindle
February 12, 2014 at 8:57 am
Well, if you’re already technically too challenged to adjust your font size…

Funnily enough, I need E-readers because I’m too blind to read most regular books.
Which is why this elitist e-reader vs books nonsense annoys the crap out of me.

I like books than kindle(all reading devices). but when it is dark while travelling, I become desperate. and checking the meanings of hard words make me tired. Kindle offers solutions to this. but the feel of touch and the aroma you get from a brand new book can’t be given by an electronic device.

And the crack of the spine when you first open it…
February 14, 2014 at 12:01 am
I hate cracking the spine.

My Kindle got killed, because I leaded over summat whilst it was in my insulated Vest’s inside pocket.
Now I use my Proscan 7″ Tablet, mit Kindle app, to read books. Non-kindle books I read with anudder handy Android app. The Proscan has its own light, and is in colour!
Own 4 x 5′-tall bookshelves full of hardcover and paperback books, Technical and Science Fiction. Astonishing how many books those Baen Authors write, eh?
The Last Centurion, by John Ringo, is really appropriate, for those in the eastern USA, right now, imho.

It doesn’t matter whether it’s high tech or low tech, just read!
February 14, 2014 at 4:40 pm
but then how can I feel superior to everyone else?
February 15, 2014 at 8:00 am
Just make sure it has an apple on it somewhere

Totally agree with mahasw. It doesn’t matter what format you read with, just read!
But all things considered one strong EMP would fry all the notebooks, tablets and computers while leaving real books untouched. 😉

That’s a nightmare scenario that keeps me up at night. But then again, during a zombie apocalypse I would have to travel lite. 😉

really, really want to share this.. just one question. Any chance it can be edited to correct the “you’re” in the second dialog box? I know, picky me. 😀

Read it again…it’s fine
February 20, 2014 at 4:13 pm
I did read that wrong — thanks guest! 🙂

Wish I could do that with some actual people.

Interestingly enough, while it looks like a cheap BIC-style lighter where (for both safety and simplicity reasons) you have to hold down the valve to keep the flame going, the ereader is visibly not doing so. So the paper book was just lucky the lighter didn’t fall their way once the ereader dropped it . . .

I prefer real books, but that’s just me. More power to those people who can comfortably make the switch.
