I came to e-books reluctantly and I still (may) prefer normal books and magazines. That said I have been borrowing my girlfriend’s Barnes & Noble Nook for more and more of my trips, even if that just means a few stops on the subway. I’ve never used an Amazon Kindle but am confident that I would find it equally satisfactory.
