Hello All,

Although, I have not been in the market for ebooks, I guess now is the time to hop on that train. Random House is about to release a lot of their books as eBooks, http://www.usatoday.com/tech/news/2008-11-24-digital-random-house_N.htm?csp=34.

With the way the economy is and everyone's money being damn funny, eBooks are less inexpensive that its paper counterpart. True, cheaper still is the library, but the convience of downloading a book and not dealing with the traffic, parking it takes to go to the library could be attractive to some, not me cause I love being surrounded by books. Even I have been eyeballing Amazon's Kindle. It looks kind of snazzy, but that price *eyebrow raised* is damn high for something that does only one thing, even my X-Box360 can play DVDs. But, I guess its time for me to get my butt off my back, suck it up, and hop on the electronic bandwagon.
