Actually I understand the concern about reading.
I've noticed that some older people prefer a computer monitor while many younger people such as myself still find printed matter better for the eyes and have some/many books as printed matter + Bible study software.
Btw, related to this issue, I today ordered a book as printed matter even though Logos (Vyrso, which is for more simple books and novels and with automatized tagging) offered the previous Edition of it for free. I will rarely do like that.
I don't download many free books. I just don't find it worthwhile to clutter my digital library, nor the extra organization required, so fewer books can be better. Free isn't always complete free. I also think about not causing the servers more download requests than necessary, and I don't pay for any internet and most probably won't for quite a while. (It wouldn't be all that simple to get internet, the contract would have to be in someone else's name, as over here You have to pay a TV-license (which goes for public service TV and radio) if You have anything that looks like a computer or a smartphone or internet (even without a computer) or a TV. I hide my laptops and the external monitor, and I have never had a TV in my own home and never will.)
I'm reluctant to get any Kindle or Android device, and I refuse to buy Kindle books from Amazon. I may sound like an ethically concerned person and maybe I am, I think about that for producing that kind of device a metal is needed for the touch monitor, so a rare earth mineral is consumed, and I guess that we will r out of that mineral at some point.
I just bought an external monitor two days ago for my smaller computer. I have two laptops, both with 1366*768 pixels. The old one (with SSD and 4 GB RAM) is 11.9" with external ergonomic keyboard www.trulyergonomic.com, the internal keyboard is almost broken (several keys don't work, due to that I used the computer outside the local library using Wifi this winter). The new one (which I'm considering upgrading to Windows 8 and 120 GB SSD) is 15.6", regular 2.5" harddrive and 7.6 GB RAM available.
I don't have a printer. If I would have I might be too tempted to start printing a lot at some point. But it would actually be good to have. As I write this I'm getting tempted to buy that - but I surely can't afford this month. It would be difficult to hide it, I could only take it out from the store in the middle of the night. Organizing papers wouldn't be all that much of a problem. Unfortunately I often prioritize papers and books over other household duties.
I try to think whether I want a book as printed matter or in Bible study software. I shall think about that even more in the future, and not always buy in Bible study software just because it often happens to be cheaper. Sometimes I even duplicate, although seldom so far. Logos, in which I have many hundred books and a whole bunch under evaluation often sells books in collections (not exactly the same thing as collections in Accordance), i.e. bundled, so I have sometimes ended up buying just the desired volume(s) as printed matter.
Was on a vacation in Germany by car July 21. - Aug. 1. relaxing, evangelizing a little, while studying.
Going to teach myself the asq -programming language. /June 16. 2015
Installing OS X 10.11 El Capitan (one year membership $99) in July 2015 on my 2007 Macbook Pro with motherboard changed when it was 4 years old, disks changed as well: main drive 256 GB SSD, two new batteries. The 6 GB RAM and the two USB 3.0 ports for it (the latter through ExpressCard slot) just arrived this afternoon. /June 17. I haven't got the competitor software to work on it yet. /July 9.-20. 2015
For my recommendations regarding the WBC sale: see: https://community.lo...331.aspx#760331 ... except that I'd wait for the New Edition of Jude/2 Pt by Bauckham - it's a revised Edition from 2014, and I might possibly recommend Hebrews 1-8, 9-13 by Lane IF it's not Evangelical - I'll check that from the reference book by John Glynn. Additionally I recommend: 2 Kg by Hobbs, 1985, and 1, 2, 3 Jn by Smalley, 2010 revised Edition.
