I’ve been thinking about eReaders a lot lately. Partially because I love new gadgets and also because you can no longer see our coffee table.
However I’m not sure I need one…
I *think* I have it narrowed down to a Kindle if I do get one. Although I love the look of the Nook, I have an iPhone and don’t need something that does a whole lot. I just need a good eReader linked to a good eBook store. Amazon is known for having more books at better prices. So what’s holding me back? The $260!
Using my In My Mailbox posts I went back and (as well as I could) compared the price of what I bought to how much the eBook would have cost. Between October of last year and now (although I have the feeling I missed quite a few weeks…) I would have saved $71 on 22 books. So it would seem that I would have to buy around 80 books to pay for a Kindle. I actually think the number of books would be less because I avoid buying hardbacks when they come out because of the price and would probably buy the eBook… but that just means that I’ll spend more on books… so it will just even out. I guess it’s all about shelling out the money for the device. What to do?!
