Lmao. Wow. Japanese people, the sillies. I have to agree. I'd rather read something physical, than virtual. I have slight troubles reading ebooks. Though I kind of got over it, cuz I really really really wanted to read that book.
Reading a chapter on my tiny little screen would drive me nuts. Have the time I can't even read my screen cuz of light refraction or the sun being stupid and in my way. I have to be inside to actually read it. Lol. If you had an iPhone or Blackberry I suppose it wouldn't be that bad, but still it's kinda inconvenient. How much memory would that take up on your phone?

LOL I have to agree with most of you. I'd much rather have a real book to lug around, whether or not it's heavy. I just think it's a lot easier and funner to have the actual object. I'm not too into ebooks, either. They make my head hurt, though they are a good thing for some people...
I don't know about the space. I wouldn't think that a text phone novel would take up too much space, because I'm pretty sure you just delete it after you've read it (it's like recieving a text supposedly) but I wouldn't know. Another bad thing is that these aren't by real authors, so there would be the issue of quality, as Ravenclaww said. Not that there aren't a lot of good authors who don't get published, but...

Jeezums...ebooks...ick. They're called "books" for the same reason we don't call a banana a potato...because they're two different things entirely! I'd rather feel the freshly-printed pages in my fingers and smell the processed ink instead of reading Harry Potter of a two-inch screen that has to be charged every thirty minutes xP

Yeah, the e-books make my eyes hurt a lot, too. I know their easier to read, but I don't really like them. I'd rather pay extra for a real book than buy a cheeper one if it's an e-book. Their not that much more, and they'll last longer, too.
As far as the cell phone thing goes, they aren't written by "real" authors, so that might kind of stink to read. Plus, it would wrack up your phone bill, which would not be fun.
