    Re: Tying Books on a Kindle

    I am surprised that no one brought this up....

    The software for the Kindle...

    Where do you think it will be at in say 3 - 5 - 8 years from now?

    Remember 3.1 ? or how about the 5.5 inch floppy discs?

    So what ever book you buy now for a Kindle or any other type of electronic book will be gone in a few years time.

    The book.... or magazine...


    You will still have it in your hands 20 years from now.

    Unless you let someone BORROW it and DOESN'T RETURN YOUR PROPERTY.

    Anyway....

    The book it the only way to go if you want to keep it.

    Re: Tying Books on a Kindle

    Speaking of books -- I have a First Edition Autographed by Art Flick -- "Art Flicks NEW Streamside Guide" Great book for anyone wanting to learn about Flies although it is dated -- It was for many many years the "BIBLE" on May Flies. Thats when Swisher and Richards took it a step further in Selective Trout and tried to go Deeper than Art did. To this day those books are a wealth of knowledge (See Below)

    You know, when you take a quick (or even not so quick) look at the 2nd book, it looks like Art wants to do something else - streamside. With wings.

    Re: Tying Books on a Kindle

    I believe the ebooks are here to stay for a while. I just hope they will come up with some standardized version of the format soon so once you purchase an ebook you can download it on all your electronic devices - the Kindle, iPad or your computer.
    I agree with Andy B. where I use books and youtube at home and my iPad or iPhone while camping/vacation or business trips. It's just so much "lighter" to pack a single device which I'll have with me anyway than couple books. Plus once you go fishing to a new place away from home soon you'll realize that the flies are different here and you don't have them in your books - youtube will be your best friend here.

    Many men go fly fishing all of their lives without knowing that it is not fish they are after.

    Re: Tying Books on a Kindle

    AK made a good point about electronic devices getting outdated, but hidden in his post was another point.

    If someone "borrows" a book, you're short one book.
    If someone borrows your Kindle, you lost ALL your books.
