Books on paper are here to stay (I hope)

The other advantage of books on paper is that they can’t be deleted at the push of a button by Big Brother (in the form of Amazon, Google or Homeland Security).

    Yes, I understand that buying an e book is more like renting it.

    I have an e-book reader but still prefer paper in many ways. For one, I just don’t like looking at a screen to read. Maybe if I had a Kindle paperwhite reader instead of something with an LCD screen (a nook color) I’d feel different.

    But the real, serious reason I keep buying physical books over e-books is more economical. There is no secondary market for e-books! I can’t go find a great e-book used on Amazon or Half.com for a few dollars, then resell it when I’m done!

    E-books also don’t make me look super cool and smart, sitting up on my bookshelf. hehe…
