But there is a difference between PDF books and other ebooks. PDF documents don't have the same features as what you can get from an ereader.

POLL DESCRIPTION

sneakgun worries...

Borders Books went bankrupt blaming the new computerized books. Are paper books going to become extinct? Are the books we use for the hobby available in electronic media? I don't like the trend towards electronic media, just another stupid toy that has a limited lifespan of programmed obsolescence, but maybe I'm a dinosaur too.
