I think its all down to personal preference though. I have a couple of friends who have kindles and like to have all their books stored and organized in one place. My bookshelf is pretty organized but I'm running out of space fast haha.
Like you said, I like to experience the actual physicality of the book in my hands (I'm a pleasure reader).
I tried reading on a Kindle before, and it just didn't cut it.
