Me too. Plus, it irks me to think of paying money, not for ownership
of the book, but merely for the right to view it on one particular
device that could die or become obsolete.

Sometimes an eBook is written specifically for the Internet, and may contain helpful features like word or subject searches, and hyperlinks to other sites, or other sections of the eBook. In fact some authors have found the eBook to be the perfect way to self-publish. They cut out the middlemen like agents and publishers, and can offer their novels or non-fiction for a small fee to interested readers.
