Still Have a Bookshelf or Have You Gone eBook?

A sturdy bookshelf used to be the staple of a great home office. Where else were you going to keep your industry texts and files of paperwork? But now that we've fast-forward to July 2010 (really, it's July?!?), we can enjoy the spoils of paperless billing, scanning everything to your hard drive and even reading an entire library of books—everything from fiction to references—from our iBooks app.

Personally, although I'm an avid reader, I haven't yet splurged on a Kindle or Nook. My only foray into e-book reading so far has been a quick download of the iBooks app to my iPhone last night.

As a result, I still have a bookshelf full of my favorite reads sitting in my home office.

But even if I did move my humble library over to the Kindle, I think I'd still want to keep my favorite titles (there's a lot of them) on a shelf.

How about you? Would you ever choose e-copies over hard copy books? Has your library already made the move over to digital? Or are you like me and want to have the best of both worlds? Let us know in the comments!
