I love my Kindle too (invaluable for work travel!), but the library is still a heck of a lot cheaper. I do use it for most of my reading...

Absolutely. I got a kindle last year and I've probably spent way more on books then I was before. Some of the paperbacks that are 5.99 at Target are 8.99 on Kindle!! This pisses me off and many times I won't buy them just for that reason.

I do buy a lot of independent authors and free books, so some of it may balance out. Still. I went to the library the other day because I couldn't stomach the thought of paying 13.99 for a non-physical book. I think ebook pricing is currently WAY too high.
