Do You Kindle?

What do you think of e-readers? Love them? Hate them? No opinion?

Me, I have a Kindle and I love it. I also read Kindle books on my iPhone. Yes, they have an app for that. I travel a lot. Back in the old days, you know, way  back last year. I had to pack a suitcase full of books when I left town, and usually before I made it home, I had to find a trade-a-book store, so I could replenish my supply. Now, I don't have to do that. I can leave home with my Kindle in my purse, and have weeks, even months worth of books at my fingertips, and more available any time I want to press the order button. For me, it's the greatest invention of the century so far. Yes, I still read paper books. Yes I love the smell, feel and look of paper books. No, I'll never have a house completely empty of books. There will always be more books than shelves in my home, but I do love electronic books.

So, tell me what you think. Do you Kindle, or Nook or use any of the multiplying number of e-readers out there? If you're an author, how do your electronic sales match up to your hard copy sales? Are e-readers the wave of the future or just a speed bump on the publishing highway?
