Kitty - I don't think you'd be happy at all with an e-reader. You'd miss the feel, smell, etc. of real books too much. And the joy selecting books brings you, be it at the library or a store. Downloading e-crap just ain't the same experience. Yeah, a Kindle is lighter to lug around, but doubt you'd find the trade off worth it.
Come on down - we'll take a visit to the Strand! Mmmmmm......real books!
