I'm still not sure if I want one just to want one, or if the process of DH and I trying to simplify our lives and remove clutter, I want one to save space. I love the idea of taking tons of books with me on a trip but them taking up very little room. I also would love to reclaim some bookshelf space in my bedroom, of course that would mean actually reading the books I buy. I've read ebooks before on my tiny, borrowed from work laptop and I like that fine, in fact it's a nice way to read, and due to my current health problems it is nice to not have to hold open a book. However the battery life on the laptop is poor and it's a pain to drag around and plug up everywhere. It works nice to prop up on my while I am laying in bed though, but I can see where a Kindle would be easy to hold and read too.
So while I am waiting, what are your thoughts on ebook readers? Do you have one? Do you like what you have? Do you want something else (Sony eReader, the Nook, one I don't know about)? If you don't have an ereader - which one do you want or do you not even want one (a year ago I didn't want one)? I'm still open on the ereader so I need your opinions.
