Guys I have a question!

To those of you who love reading, what do you think about eReaders?

I’ve been thinking about getting a Kindle or something like that, because as much as I love books (also as objects themselves - the cover art, flicking through them, their smell (!)) they’ve gotten a bit too expensive for me being a broke, jobless student. So my question to you is: is it worth it to buy one of those? Is the whole reading experience as enjoyable as an actual book?
