    Because you NEED it. Otherwise, you will have to pay extra to check the bag with all the books you need to bring so you can read on the beach. With your new nook, all your books fit in your carry on!

    ETA: And if you get a Nook, I will lend you books to read so you don't have to buy them.
  • Because he wants to check his facebook all the time. I KNOW IT.

  • Because instead of bringing 10 books, you'll just bring the e-reader and then he won't have to carry as heavy of a suitcase or carry on!

  • Because it's easier and lighter than carrying a bunch of books on the airplane.

    Because you won't whine about how heavy your luggage is if you have one.

    <div>Try the financial aspect: e-books are cheaper. And it saves paper therefore saves trees. And it takes up less space in your house. Those are what worked on my FI.</div>
  • WHATS MORE PRACTICAL THAN A BILLION BOOKS IN ONE SMALL SPACE?

    Brandie, I live my life in the water, and I needed to find a way to do it in the water.

    It's brilliant.

    BUT THE E-READER IS PRACTICAL!

    Will you guys move in the near future?  Fewer heavy boxes of books for him to carry.

    This is a very valid point.  We just moved, and H was very grumpy about all the boxes of books.  He kept mumbling that "I gave you a Kindle for Christmas.  Why do you have all these still?"

    Because that collection took me 27 years to accumulate, and if I didn't have the Kindle, there would be even MORE boxes.
