Are eBooks the only choice now?

As a writer I love books. I love to read, collect and write books. I like the feel of the paper in my hands, and yet I also love my Kindle. It must sound strange, but each has it place. Relaxing in a hot bubble bath after a long day, does not quite feel the same holding a Kindle, and yet it is perfect with a book.

Once Géra's Gift was published it only felt real once I held the paper copy of it in my hand, but then again, I got the same thrill once the ebook versions became available too. Call it writer's insanity of you wish.

Is the future going to include only ebooks? I don't know, but I hope that printed books will be around for another few years. Otherwise my bath time will not be the same anymore.
