Still Lost in Austen

I just finished reading Sense and Sensibility this afternoon and am looking forward to reading Emma, next.  A couple of years ago, when I first resolved to read all of Jane Austen’s novels, I started on my eReader with free downloads and read three on that device.  Then I happened upon the complete collection (six volumes) in hardback (in unread, nearly pristine condition) on eBay for $25.00!  What a find!  I had to add them to my library.  Although the digital reading devices have their own charm and advantages, I think I may actually prefer holding a real book in my hands, feeling the paper as I turn the pages (downright heretical these days, I quess).  It just takes me back to the joy of reading as a child.  I was wondering what everyone else thinks.
