I agree. It is a device to facilitate reading, with some advantages and many fans.

But, a book it is not.

Ebooks are great. Besides the convience of not carrying bulk during my hour commute I love the ability to buy online and get it in a few seconds. I bought the cheapest tablet I could find. In addition, books that are not copyrighted are often available free.
What's not to like?


That it's not a book.

It is not a book. As you love books you have answered my question.

Not too long ago, someone posted a photo on FB of a stack of handheld slate chalkboards. Written on one was "Victorian Tablet - £5" In the comments (I know I shouldn't read them, Fr. Kenobi, but sometimes it pays off), someone wrote "Obviously Android tablets. If they'd been Victorian iPads, they'd have asked £150." :laughhard :laughhard :laughhard

I love the thing itself, res ipsa, true. And must live with the consequences.
