Quote from: DavidW on March 12, 2023, 10:09:41 AMI bought a Kindle in 2010. It was interesting that I found a post here that I made in 2011 saying that I was drifting back into physical books. But eventually more and more of my reading became ebooks due to limited space in my apartment and then later presbyopia. I now live in a house and wear progressive lenses. Over the course of the past year or so since I could comfortably read normal and fine print again, and found myself reading ebooks less and less often. It is just a nicer experience to read print books and to own them (actually own them).I think it was inevitable, but a few things have made up my mind to ditch ebooks a little bit earlier. Amazon has made a critical change to close the exploit people (like myself) were using to strip the DRM off the ebooks they paid for. The second is the Roald Dahl controversy. You've most likely heard of it. But what you might not know is that the publisher pushed the censored version out to Kindle, Kobo etc. to replace the original version. I didn't "own" any of those ebooks, but it is just too much. Paying full price for a license to own something that could change at the drop of a hat... it is just ridiculous. And I'm not taking it anymore. So I'm calling quits on ebooks. I'm reading one now, and it will be the last one.What about everyone else?
