Are You a Book Purist?

Have you noticed that the New York Times bestseller list now starts with Combined Print & E-Book Fiction, and Combined Print & E-Book Nonfiction, followed by the Hardcover lists for each category? With the onslaught of e-readers, it seems that this was bound to happen. Check out these new electronic books available online.

For your beach reading, do you prefer to load up your Kindle or your book bag? While I of course have a great deal of regard for the written word, the sanctity of the printed page is less important to me (especially after many summers spent managing used book sales!).

How do you feel about the evolution of the reading experience?

Do you miss going to the bookstore and perusing the covers, then making your selection, or are you content with instant access to the latest books?
