Question to frequent book readers out there cause I myself am not a frequent book reader. Over time I have found myself amassing a decent (though not large) list of books to read. However, I haven't read that many books myself growing up excluding anything school required or star wars focused as a kid. So I'm wondering two things specifically. 1. What do people think about ebooks compared to hard cover books? What's the preference? Why is it a preference? Does one posses uses the other lacks? 2. Where can they obtained for cheap (and not covered in jam/dirt etc)? Being largely a PC gamer I have gotten very used to investing my limited cash on steam sales and humble bundles. That way I am getting maximum gain for minimal cost. The only comparison I can find with books though is Amazon, and that get's counter-acted by shipping fee's knocking it back up (and the government is bound to add an extra fee at the border like they do with think geek).
