eBook Sales Overtake Paperbacks

Amazon have reported that their sales of eBooks for the Kindle have exceeded sales of paperbacks for the first time.  I'm not surprised, once you try an eBook reader like the Kindle or iPad there really is just no going back. Not only are the eBooks cheaper than the paperbacks (though perhaps not as cheap as they should be), but the convenience of being able to carry dozens of books around with you is just so handy.
   So if you're one of those people who say "oh I love curling up with a real book, nothing can beat that" I'd say don't judge before you try. Borrow a Kindle or iPad if you can for a few days from a friend and see what it's like.....I wonder if this book will ever be published in a physical format?
