I used to import books into China but it was very expensive so I bought a Kindle and it has more than paid for itself. That was about 4 years ago but since then the postal service in China handling foreign mail disintegrated virtually overnight and I cannot get ANYTHING delivered to me in China to an address that the local sorting/delivery office has confirmed is valid. I still have a library full of traditional books that I no longer read but I have found that the e-book is easier on the eyes with adjustable inbuilt lighting. So I'm a big fan of e-books and read several every month.

Novels that I will only read the once do not need to come back, reference books and special books only go out to those I know will look after them and will return them.
