A great article on e-books vs. paper books appeared on the weekend edition of the Wall Street Journal – you can read it here.
Basically, a dedicated e-book reader went back to paper books. He discusses what he didn’t like about e-b00ks, and what he’ll miss about them. While I have no way of knowing, my bet is he’ll eventually buy another Kindle.
I have a split household: my wife sticks to her Kindle. I will not be parted from my paper books and home library.
Since my experience of reading is so intimately bound with touching the pages and the smell of the paper, the thought of just processing an electronic flow of words makes me mildly depressed.
Plus, one of the places I enjoy reading the most is relaxing in the bathtub.
Where are you on the e-book-paper spectrum?
