Hopefully not. I still prefer printed books over e-books.

I would say no, but instead people will continue to explore all avenues for the best price.

I've been buying from Kindle store. Usually book price is $9.99 range. Can highlight important sentences, can have multiple books stored in phone, can read any book at any time, from the comfort of the phone.

The feeling of the actual book on hand is what I like.

Disappointed with Kinokuniya . Till now still showing checking for stocks. Yet on webpage shows stock available in their main store.

Called Kinokuniya to check if indeed if the book is available in the main store. They mention yes but another customer had already place item for the book. Even though already ordered by another customer the webpage still show stock as available. Now need to wait for supplier stock for 3-4 weeks.

Nb really dua people show misleading info. Now can't even cancel order.

Same..... to my left is a bookshelf of books that i have collected since young.. but reality is i read on my phone now, using the NLB app, downloaded Epubs, whatever. Books feel nicer yes, but wallet also more pain
