But getting my point, when I use my pool during the daylight hours, I often take a book along as does my daughter. I've never dropped one in the water, but it could happen. Currently, a large part of my reading is done on my eReader. I expect that percentage to only increase. So how do I read in the pool with it? I don't.
I would take it on the beach. I take it to visit my mother. I take it to ballgames and to work. I take it on overnight trips. But I don't read it in the pool. There's discussion about the demise of the paper-based book but I know there are places where an eReader just will not do. The pool, a long, sudsy bath, the hot tub...
Where do you see the paper-based book as always being needed? When do you prefer a book instead of your eReader?
