Ebooks are convenient. You can buy one at three in the morning. They’re a bit less expensive (and getting more so). And the type is scalable. On the other hand, you don’t really own them, you license them. You can loan only some of them out. And it’s really hard to dog-ear an e-page.
Print books smell good. The physical act of turning a page is enticing. You don’t have to turn it on. It doesn’t need batteries and you can read one in the bathtub without dying. On the other hand, they take up a lot of space. They’re made from dead trees that would probably prefer to still be alive. They’re quite flammable. Especially around totalitarian types.
Bottom line: it’s about the content, not the container. A book is a transport mechanism to an alternative reality. How you get there isn’t important.
Just that you get there.
