Five Lessons Learned From an E-Book Experiment

Shane Richmond decided to read only e-books from October 2009 to January 2010.

Five lessons he learned:
  1. The weight is a nice advantage
  2. Page turning is less irritating than you’d think
  3. Being able to search a book is very useful
  4. Text formatting can be annoyingly sloppy
  5. Availability of titles is the biggest problem
Read the article for explanations of these five points. I was sort of surprised by number two, but it made sense; you get used to pressing the button to turn a page before you finish reading the last words on the page.
