Well, for me, personally I one of those who's always loved the feeling of walking into a library and just standing there feeling the potential of all those books, all those stories that have yet to have been read by me and nothing can take the place of a real, live, printed and bound book open on your lap while you curl up with a cup of hot tea on a cold night. Now, that being said, the e-reader does have it's place in the world of book lovers. If it weren't for my ereader I'd more boxes of books than I'd know what to do with; granted, I have more than enough p-books in boxes and on shelves to begin with but without my e-reader I'd be accumulating so many more and more that I'd overrun my house! I love that I don't have to trek myself to the library once a week anymore since I can just download/borrow them from their online catalog to read on my ereader and the same for buying books online not to mention all of the free ebooks that are available. While I do think maybe techology is spoiling us in the fact that we don't need to go all over town and back searching for our books anymore and we can house several hundred books without using up any physical space at all, there is just something magical about a real printed book that e-technology can't ever take away. I love my ereader and my ebooks but I will also be the first person to want to stop into that used bookstore and look around...but I love my ebooks...ack! Can't I love BOTH?! Sorry if this is very confusing! lol.
Hm...good question. I blog on my PC, and read any ebook requested reviews on my PC (which I loathe, I hate reading on my PC) because I am soooo not cool enough to have an ereader (yet). But I love having a book in my hand, so I'll probably still buy books even if I get an e-reader. I think the main appeal of an e-reader for me, is for travel. I travel quite a bit, and because I read so fast, I often have to take several books to make it through a trip. But an ereader would alleviate that extra weight! I listen to a lot of audiobooks though too, so I can take my books with me in audio form. :)
I use my iPad both for kindle books, PDFs and ePubs. I still love my paper books too though and still buy and borrow them at the library :)
I would blog from my iPad but the blogger website (draft.blogger.com) doesn't work properly for some reason. I get errors when I try to post and I can't scroll in neither the list of blog updates on the dashboard nor in the actual posting area. Hence all posting takes place on my laptop (also way easier when it comes to inserting images and such).
I use the app Flipboard to read all blogs though, as it has been linked to my Google Reader thingy, and I must say it's prettty damn cool.
I occasionally blog and read from my iPad, but still prefer my MacBook for blogging and paper books for reading.
The iPad works exceptionally well for graphic novels and comics, though, I have to admit. Still, I find it a bit unwieldy as a reader for the literary fiction and nonfiction I usually read. I may look into the next generation Kindle (or current keyboard-less Nook as a substitute that is easier and more comfortable to handle).
Having recently moved across the country (from Broolyn to NYC), I empathize with moving books. I actually gave away most of my books (and CDs) over a 3-year period before we moved. Finding them homes where they would be read and enjoyed far outweighed any sense of attachment to them (eventually).
