Or I could just stay right here and reply to your mindless blather. Yeah, that's what I think I'll do.

Good luck to ya!

Personally, I don't see buying Kindle books as paying more for less.

I can read them anywhere, at any time, on any of my devices.

My husband, my sister and I can all read the same book at the same time, even though Sis lives 1500 miles away.

I can enlarge the font.

I can buy new book in the middle of the night, and start reading it in seconds.

I can carry hundreds of books with me in my purse.

I can look up unfamiliar words in seconds.

E-books aren't for everyone, but denigrating others for reaching a conclusion that differs from yours does not reflect well upon you.

Quote marks don't make it so. Cite your source unless it's some ignorant blog.

Oh, are you sure that's okay with you? You've thought it through thoroughly, have you?

Sounds like you place a great deal of value on the paper and ink of physical books. I value the story - the author's creativity - over the medium through which the story is delivered. YMMV, so buy what makes sense to you.

So you have no source? Or no source other than some guy's blog? I see.

Do you even know what you're talking about? I mean, does that actually sound good when it's in your head and just lose something in the translation, or what?

Who said that the information doesn't hold value? Did I ever say that an E-book should be free? NO.

"Some guys blog" is nothing more than a desperate attack the messenger when you don't like the message argument. Are you either too lazy or incompetent to do your own research or must I spoon feed everything to you?

LOL, so don't be surprised if people express "disdain" for your opinion...

It's so cute to see the ants forming a colony to defend their little nest. Out comes the Raid. "We love paying too much for our E-books and you can't stop us." LOL!

I'm not at all surprised to hear their uninformed opinions.

Neither "uninformed" nor "opinions" mean what you think they mean.
