I am a senior lady, and for all my life, I have loved reading books. When my daughter gave me an iPad, I was sure that I would still prefer reading real nooks with real pages. However, I found that I can get my library books on here, and amazon has free books everyday, so I have built up a good little library on the iPad, and actually enjoy not having pages to turn. Some things are probably still better in a real book, like when you need to read directions over and over making something, but for just relaxing with a book, I really like ebooks. I don't even lose them, like real books, they stay right there in my iPad where they are supposed to be. I used to be running to a yard sale, or thrift store, looking for something good to read, now I can shop from home, so that is a plus also. I am not going to give up real books, but ebooks have definitely found a special place in my lifestyle.
