So for very long time I only read conventional books. The reason was very simple - I didn't have access to e-readers. But it all changed when my dad, an avid reader who reads about one book a day) bought himself a Kindle. I immediately fell in love with it. I was never that much into mobile technology but Kindle was a dream-come-true. I study in one city but travel home a lot and since I bought myself one e-book reader I never have to carry heavy books again. Also, reading in dark light hurts your eyes a lot but with most of todays reader that's no longer a problem!
