Thought I would benefit from the kindle version of Hornady's Reloading 9th Edition.  Tried it on multiple devices and not all of the pages were clearly view able, which could be a slight problem in reloading.  Amazon was good enough to give me a refund and I just went and bought the paper copy instead.  Probably better too so when I am reading the book there will be less distractions.

Paper also doesn't have glare on the screen!

Very true.  I really like the tech stuff that is out there but recently I am see a lot of drawbacks too, such as the distractions, problems and extra expense.  I wouldn't want to be without it, I wouldn't have things like this forum.  My shocker today was looking up the bullet combo and not being able to see if it was a 1, or 4 or 9, (even with glasses) which can be a big difference in grains. 

This site summed it up pretty well:

I suppose I take a different view. Reloading should be done without distraction for maximum safety and optimal performance. Checking a .243 Win load online might seem like a good idea, but that iPhone or tablet you are using is a distraction trap. A book won’t “accidentally” have you checking Facebook or watching cat videos on YouTube. But, hey – that’s just my opinion. Yours may vary.

Agreed on paper, I prefer to have my books on paper rather than electronic books.

A paper book also doesn't care if you battery is dead.

You can drop your paper  book to the ground and not worry if when you pick it up that you can still read it.

I really got luck on it...they refunded the $18.99 back for the book so I just went ahead and rolled that over to a new copy with I guess is the latest edition. I agree with you drop the book and no issues....drop the computer/device...whole lot more expense...
