I love my books.
I live in a house which has shelves in pretty much every room stacked everywhere.
I have a full library of my own in my classroom purely because I do not have the room at home (No idea what I'm going to do if I ever move jobs).
This leaves me with a problem
What do I do when the shelf space actually runs out??
I am close to this dark day. Without doing radical like moving, getting rid of my bed / fridge/ bathroom I reckon I have space for one more bookcase then I'm done.
One solution that seems obvious to the outside observer is for me to purchase an e-reader of some kind. I'm really hesitant to do this because I love having books everywhere and am reluctant to spend money on something ebooks when often a real print copy of the same book is the same price. I know this line of argument is flawed because I download songs for my ipod and think nothing of it but I can't get my head around not having a pile of books to pick up and flick through and hold right in front of me.
There's only one thing that has started to chance my mind. It's a beast named Netgalley whose very existence threatens to do dangerous things to my TBR pile. It is luring me in with its offerings of gorgeous titles and I'm not sure how much longer I can keep it at bay.
So my question to you my dear readers is do I buy an e-reader?
If so which one would you recommend and why do you like it?
If not why not?
Help me make up my mind!!!
