* Do you read e-Books?
* If so, how? On your computer, or a PDA?
* Or are you a paper purist? Why?
I don't read e-Books, although I did participate for a while in the Project Gutenberg proofreading project.
I am intrigued by the Sony bookreader, but only because it looks like the notepads they used on Star Trek. I think for now I'm a paper purist - can't beat it for portability, no batteries, no software. I love the smell and feel of books, and to see them all lined up on my shelf or piled by my bed.

From: Booking Through Thursday:
Here’s an idea from Julie:
I had an idea for a BTT question when I was taking a peek at one of my bookcases yesterday and spotted my old copy of the Aeneid in Latin sitting there. Maybe this question has already been done—but if not… Do you have any foreign language books and if so can you (still) read them?
I have a copy of "Nine Princes in Amber" by Roger Zelazny in Russian. I don't read Russian - never have - but a friend of mine who shared my obsession with this series went to Russia for a semester in college and brought this back as a gift. The mysterious characters make the book seem even more magical, and I smile whenever I catch sight of it on the shelf.

So to start:
What I'm Reading:
Eat, Pray, Love - Elizabeth Gilbert
Reading Lolita in Tehran - Azar Nafisi
I usually have several books going at once.
