    "Describe something you really want to buy in the future."

    The following is the topic: "Describe something you really want to buy in the future."
    Now, is this paragraph below OK as a conclusion, especially in terms of verb tenses?

    All in all, an e-book reader clearly has a lot of good points over paper books. Although I am not used to such device, I think I’ll soon get used to it as I begin to use it. To me, this will probably be an important device—it is much more likely to fulfill my appetite for reading than printed books do now. It is going to be my closest companion whenever I make a journey. I think if I had owned this device many years ago, my reading would increase significantly. In fact, I suppose this digital book reader could help me to improve and develop my reading skills. Besides, it might well be the most important utilitarian electronic device I have ever had.

    Who gave you this topic to write about?

    No body. I am practicing on my own. I wrote it. I chose the topic in the Internet.

    I thought it was simply called an e-book. Not an e-book reader.

    Re: "Describe something you really want to buy in the future."

    Because the topic is related to something that we want to have in the future, I just want to know if the use of those verb tenses is OK.

    It's an e-reader. You read e-books on it.

    OK. (I've never read an e-book.)

    The verb tenses are fine. (There are other minor problems.)
