Downsides of reading e-books

I’ve been wanting to write a post about downsides of reading e-books on my Kindle for a long time. For me there isn’t almost any. But recently I have found a big one.

I don’t miss holding physical book in my hands and how much space they take if you own couple of them. I don’t miss smell of it (my sense of smell is poor anyway). But I do miss the the ability to see immediately how many pages a book contains.

For example, as it turned out I’m now reading 850-page long book. It’s The Charm School by Nelson DeMille and I started to read it because I’m sad The Americans has ended after 6 seasons. I discovered book in Barnes and Noble’s blog post Instead of Watching That, Read This. The series’ and book’s concepts are very similar. I predict I’ll finish it in 2 months.
