Hi Harietta, must say I agree, once they make kindles that smell like books they may become even more popular. :lol:

For me, nothing will ever take the place of a hard copy book. I love the feel of it in my hands and the satisfaction of turning a page instead of pressing a button to get to the next page. I got a Kindle from a friend, but I rarely use it, preferring my books instead.

Nothing will ever give me the same feeling as reading paperbacks or a hardcopy book. I don';t know how they read a book using kindle (of course I've tried it, but it took me 9 days to read the book, while I would have finished the book in a few hours if it would have been a paperback). What I miss the most in the ebooks, is that the rustling of the pages. As Amanda said, the if I can't feel the book in my hand I don't feel like I'm reading it. And of course like Harietta and Rook, what's the point of reading the book if you can;t smell the pages! lol
