As nice as my Kindle is, and it's very nice (8.9" Kindle Fire) the big problem is that a lot of the books I want to read are not yet available for it.
Like The Moon Is A Harsh Mistress. A lot of the classic Heinlein books are available for the Kindle but not that one.
And A Night in the Lonesome October.
And just now I had a really strong urge to reread Jack of Eagles. It's one of the lesser known novels by James Blish, but it's really good.
On the other hand, I just discovered that The Demolished Man is available for the Kindle. So maybe I'll read that tonight.
It's high time we dragged the publishing companies kicking and screaming into the 19th century.

And most of my 4k+ SF library, collected over a lifetime, got scattered when I moved down to SC. I'll probably never read most of those titles again. If it were even possible, it would take tens of thousands of dollars to reassemble that collection. I don't even still have the catalog I constructed on R base.
It's very depressing to realize that the culture of my youth isn't just gone, The literary part of it is dust, never to be seen again.
