Does the Kindle Pay For Itself?

Found a good article that talks about both sides of the argument that a Kindle can pay for itself. On the one hand this could technically be true. If you buy a lot of brand new hardback books, then the Kindle will eventually save you enough money to pay for itself, since e-books tend to be a few dollars cheaper than their printed cousins.

But several recent surveys have shown that those with e-book readers both read more, as well as buy more. So you might technically be saving money, but you’re also spending more as a result. So it’s kind of like when a spouse tells their partner that they should be happy because they’ve saved lots of money shopping. Technically true, but at the end of the day your wallet is pretty empty.

    The real question is by the time it pays for itself will you want a new one? (we can’t really live with that older model any more can we?) But maybe reading more is the real benefit.
