I recently used kindle for the first time in my life. The device was amazing. I felt I was almost reading on paper.
Its an amazing product. The view was sharp. The pages were easier to turn and the overall experience was good.
I believe that e-book readers would become a norm in about 10 years and we will shed whatever inhibitions we have about such devices.
Maybe we can start constructing museums which will showcase how we used to read on paper :)
