Nov 3rd 2009 4:53PM The e-book isn't for everyone. If you live in a place with a good local library, convenient to your home or work, that you can access easily and often - then go for it. Not everyone is so lucky. For me, I read 8 to 10 books a month and travel frequently. The weight of books was a large drag on my bags, and I am never sure if I would be back in time to turn in my books before they are overdue. I have found reading on a book-reader very natural, and have no trouble reading in an airplane seat, on the sofa, in the bathtub, and while lying in bed. The text size is adjustable for different lighting situations, and the charge lasts several weeks. The books are usually a few dollars cheaper than they would be in a discount book store, and 3 to 4 times cheaper than buying in an airport or other closed access market. If reading an e-book isn't your thing, fine - but don't run down the rest of us just because we have found we like it.

If the Alabama Baptist Association had their way, we'd still have prohibition, this website would be blocked, and those of us who choose to partake of the "demon liquior" would be locked up in prison.
