e-readers

What with one thing and another - including this recent post over at Jessewave's blog and lots of m/m books I want to read being e-books only, as well as ebooks being significantly cheaper than paper-based ones... I've been thinking more often about maybe, possibly, someday getting an e-reader.

Not that I'm about to go out and buy one anytime soon (where soon = within a year) because there's other things need buying first. But this evening I realised that owning one could have a huge advantage I'd never thought of before: recipes.

Now, I don't know how many recipe books (if any?) are available as ebooks, but for someone like me it would be great - the number of times I've been struck with inspiration while I'm out doing the weekly shop, thought I've bought all the ingredients (or that I have most of them in stock already) and got home to find I've forgotten one thing... and it's usually something the village shop doesn't stock either so I'd have to drive at least to the closest town (8 miles away) and possibly to Welshpool or back to Oswestry (each being 20 miles away, in different directions). But if I had an e-reader and at least most of my favourite recipes stored on it - I could just look it up there & then (and check if it's single, double or whipping cream I need, and stuff like that).

On the other hand, I'd probably forget to take it with me which would result in the same situation as now, but with added frustration!
