Shopaholic books are soooo funny! Wish she'd hurry up and write some more!
Have you read the other Sophie Kinsella books? I think she is a fantastic writer. I read her books so quickly thou. I am still to read her new book.

Do you have it on an ereader or paperback? I was wondering where is the best place to buy for an ereader?

I've got a kindle which I bought with my birthday money back when it was released in August. Only problem I have is some cracking on the casing however other owners from launch time have experienced this and have spoken to amazon customer services and they will get a new one sent out to them. I need to so that myself, just getting round to it is the problem!

I don't have a kindle but thought it was worth mentioning that the iphone (and maybe other smartphones) can use the kindle app to read kindle books :) I've ordered a couple now from amazon (nothing too exciting - all books about nutrition and diet, and a couple of bbc recipe ones!)!

iBooks is good on iPhone? You can adjust the brightness an text size so an easy read on a small screen!! But some of the free stuff is badly formatted. BUT I've read some fabulous new stuff on there FOR FREE :)

I so want a kindle :cry: I love real books too though and don't think I could ever forsake the love of looking at them on my bookshelves, so I think I would operate a dual system but have yet to work out what the rules that govern which I would by would be... well that is something I could contemplate in the waiting til I can afford a kindle time :D

What does everyone else do? Do you still buy real and e-books? Do you have a set criteria or is it all fairly random? I suppose with kindle or any e-book readers it fulfills the "I want it and I want it now *stamps foot*" urge :rotflmao:

Plus you get reflection on the iPhone....when I first got my kindle I thought the screen was a fake one with a sticker to pull off but it's all real!!! Amazing!!!

I'm a book fan, so a kindle isn't really worth the money for me. I only buy non-fiction fitness books for my iphone if I'm impatient and want to be able to look things up on the go / recipe books that aren't particularly shelf-pretty (because then it's easy when doing my food shop!). For proper reading, I don't think I'd ever be happy with a kindle because I'm an aesthete when it come to books, I like the feel and appearance of them and pick my classics based on publisher / appearance of book - I used to have my books sent to the reading room that had the most beautiful books at university - even if they were totally unrelated to what I was reading! That said, my friends who have kindles LOVE them! But it really depends on you :)

me tooooo!!!! but after reading the reviews on amazon (i won mine and was considering just ebaying it!!) i thought...well what the hell...

some reviews said that if you were a true lover of reading you'll quickly get over what you're reading your book on and "get" the kindle. in some parts true, in some parts, completed untrue. Like say, I can't get my head around reading off my laptop/iPhone, but something about the Kindle they have just got it spot on.

I love my kindle, it's truly fabulous. I get so many free books, and texts books are so much cheaper, not to mention that it means that I can take all of my uni books to uni without having to lug a bulging 2stone bag, lol. (I've just lost three stone, I don't want to be lugging that weight around with me anymore!)

I do adore books though. When I have my own house, where I don't have to move every 9 months as it is with student accomodation now, I fully plan on having a huge beauty and the beast style library...with a secret door that you open by pulling a book....

but until then I'll be over here stroking my kindle.
