There's the initial cost of the ebook, then around $9-10 for most others and though I've never tried one (as in just holding it), I don't think it would be as comfortable to hold as a book. I have observed cruisers using them and they seem to enjoy - it's just my opinion. So all those $10 +, I can add to my cruise piggy bank!
I understand that you are reluctant, but if you like to cruise or just to travel, there is no more convenient way to take several books with you than on a small, readily accessible device that weighs but a few ounces. Really, its great!!
Landlocked in Denver, but cruisin every chance we get.
