    It took me a while to get used to one and I too prefer an actual book...
    But a reader is much nicer on the beach, you can highlight passages without marking up a library book, and my library is 40 miles away... When I need a new read I want it NOW! LOL

    It's also smart to share accounts with friends and family. We would pass a good one around anyways so it isn't unethical exactly... I'm kinda torn on that.

    I still buy older westerns and collect art books and limited/special editions from the used book stores. I like giving the Mom & Pops stores my money and appreciate them so much!

    I can't get into the Kindle things - there's something lovely about the feel of a real book and paper pages. I also like to see them lined up on my bookcase too!!
    I do love the audio books though because I can listen to them when I'm doing boring stuff like cleaning the barn - but they're the same as reading because I often find myself sitting in there doing nothing at all just so I can find out what happens next!!

    I am a completely obsessive reader too. You have to pretty much hit me in the head to get my attention once I start. Drivez my sister nuts. I'll bring a book to work and read during lunch hour. I refuse to go anywhere with my kobo - even a five minute drive to the store to get milk. Lol

    I was the same way. Still prefer real books but when I was working on the pipeline the kobo that held 900 books is way easier the entire suitcase I had to pack!

    My DH loves the Kindle we bought him for Christmas for a similar reason - great for travelling with, he can get through a load of books when he's stuck in a hotel room in a foreign country or on a long boring flight without all that extra luggage to carry!!!

    If you have a Kindle and someone who wants to read your book has a Kindle, you can share the book with them. I haven't tried to do so yet, but the option is available on your Amazon account to share a book. I think it gets taken off of you Kindle and sent to the borrower's kindle for a set period of time. Then it gets taken off of their Kindle and comes back to yours.

    Edit: I'll also buy a book I read on my Kindle in paperback if I plan to re-read it multiple times. I take books off of my Kindle fairly regularly to help keep it running quickly. (the more books you have on it, the slower it runs, and the faster the battery drains) I can always go to my amazon account an resend it to my Kindle, but I hate searching through the records. I also love having a book case full of favorites at my finger tips. :)

    I have the same problem my dear.

    Except I try not to read another book. After I finish a book/series I go through this depression/denial and say that 'I will never find a book like this again'. But then I pick up another book and read it and go through the same process.

    I just got done reading Divergent last night. And I just got done reading Insurgent tonight. Now I wait for Allegiant.

    And the funny thing is, I used to HATE reading...Now I love it.
