No actually, this makes a certain amount of sense. I could put it on my laptop and still be able to buy Kindle books to read.
Note ‘could:’ my major problem with the e-book thing is that while I wouldn’t mind transferring my two thousand book library to handy electronic form (I’d get a basement back, among other things), I don’t want to do that at ten bucks a book, or even one buck a book. Twenty-five cents a book for the genre science fiction from the Fifties and Sixties? Yeah, I’ll seriously think about making the switch. But I don’t like mixing formats.
