100%. Just take a peek on Amazon, and it will show you how much you can save from downloading a Kindle version of a book compared to having a printed version shipped to your house. (Prices are usually cheaper if you're buying in person, of course.) Coupons are easier to use online as well. You're adding a little less waste too. The downside is that you lose the physical comfort of a handheld book.

I usually keep physical copies of beloved books but use Amazon Kindle for the rest.

I think it does if you find free books to read online.

Yes, I think it is saving me money. It is cheaper that paperbacks and it occupies less shelf space.

In comparison to buying books from a store, an e-reader is more cost-effective in my experience. But, in comparison to lending from a library, an e-reader and e-books can be more costly. What weighs heavily in favour of an e-reader is the convenience: everything is online and no matter the length of the novel, it will always fit in a handbag.

Yes, It does, I'll settle for a good read regardless of the genre. Going to the bookstore to buy books definitely cost me much more e-books.
