E-Books Outselling Hardcovers at Amazon - By Wide Margin

This is reported by the New York Times here:

E-Books Outselling Hardbacks

I bought an iPad when they came out but was skeptical I would like reading long books electronically. I hate reading on computers. Turns out I like it a great deal. Just finished Atlas Shrugged, a long book if there ever was one. (Unrelated note: Atlas Shrugged, a book published 53 years ago, is #42 on Amazon).

I will miss bookstores. Libraries will hold on, I think, but not as places to go get books.
