O’ yes, we now have many ebook readers offering extreme convenience in terms of purchase, storage, maintenance and reading too. But I find the following points very important when it comes to reading a real book:

* You can safely/accidentally drop it on the floor and can still pick it up again without much heartache;
* Many human minds are tuned to slip into good sleep as soon they start reading a book;
* It can’t read out loud to you, so there is no chance you fall asleep in the middle and wake up next morning wondering where exactly you left it;
* You can underline/watermark important parts, or freely dog-ear the pages.. In fact, thats what makes a book ‘personal’ to me.


Thanks for reading. What do you say?
