Let's disambiguate right off the bat. When I talk about books, I'm talking about actual books--heavy, smelly, cumbersome, perfect bound books. The kind that take over your whole house. The kind that are a pain in the ass to carry on airplanes. The kind people borrow and never give back. I don't have a problem with e-books. In fact, I'm glad they exist, particularly for people like my buddy with muscular dystrophy, who was never much of a book reader, because the ergonomics of reading were a nightmare. Now, with an e-reader, he reads voraciously. So, hooray for e-books!
