Neil Gaiman put up his award-winning novel, "American Gods," for free this month in celebration of his blog's seventh year of operation. It got three million hits and sales increased 300%.

I downloaded Charles Bock's "Beautiful Children," read part of it, then bought the hardcover. I really hated reading it on a screen. I like books.

I'll always prefer physical books, too, but I believe part of that is my overwhelming desire to own stuff.

What do you think of Amazon's Kindle?
