theres a real ultra- clinical feeling to e-books. use em rarely. I dont read at the beach, or when Im a passenger (reading makes me nauseous in anything moving).
The only time Ive e-booked is late at night in bed. Otherwise, in bed, we would often listen to a book or a wifi taped "Big Broadcast" (these are old radio programs that WAMU does on Sunday nights and ill put em up on a wifi radio.
I even like magazines in paper. But of course, Ive been told that "only old people read paper".
However , now , even vinyl records are coming back.
