I'd probably still be reading paperbacks if I lived in the UK, but for the last ten years I've lived in the sticks in France. I struggle with French, so still read books in English, and the cheapest and easiest, and quickest way I can get them is by buying from Amazon and reading on Kindle. I love the option of downloading a sample because that's really going to tell me if I'll like the book. And no postage to pay. It was hard to give up turning pages though!
