    Its really cheap, as cheap as about S$110 for a kindle?

    Compared to books that easily cost S$10-50/book, its probably more affordable.

    I mean that's comparing owning an ebook and owning real books. Most could probably go to the library to borrow books for free

    Buy books and sell old books online is another way to reduce the loss. eBook is non-transferable but prone to priate. Either way, both are on par.
