The Quest for Ebooks

Being a book lover, with a really physical relation with the "book object" – with the touch of the cover, the smell of paper, the comforting weight in my bag – I would have never imagined to fall so deeply in the hole of electronic books. 
Not completely my fault, indeed: it's mostly iPad's fault, in fact. The chance to put dozens of books I like to read, or just to have with me, in one single thin device I can always carry along with me is absolutely incredible. Pure luxury, to me, and so it happened: I now have many (e)books that I can read always in my pouch, always at hand, whether I am walking around, lying in my bed, or waiting for the train.
The quest for ebooks has definitely started!

... and a personal site, too.

It may seem that I'm a web addicted: before I really know what my blog is meant for, I also added a personal web site, where I plan to record and organise all the relevant info that I don't mind sharing.
Which may not be the clearest of the declaratories, but it's anyway what I have in mind now.
Ok, I'm a web addicted ;)

What is the goal of a blog, today?

Sorry, I've no answers for that, for now. I have my XWiki, my FaceBook, my Google+, my personal notes and productivity tools in the cloud, my papers and my books. I can write, record, annotate, read and share anything from anywhere.
Why, then, should I have a blog? What's the purpose of posting a blog entry, today?
I have a few ideas on the matter, we'll see whether they do work, actually.
