I LOVE real books. there's just something about them, you know? i love stocking my shelves with beautiful hardcovers. as a result, i generally think ereaders and ebooks are silly. i understand that they are convenient (smaller size, can carry many books in one ereader) and they are fast (you can download a book in minutes). there are definitely benefits to ereaders. but to me this is not enough to convince me to use them instead of real books. i feel like ereaders take away the...i don't know what the right word is...essence of the book? it's not just about the words, it's about holding the book in your hands and turning the pages, it's about putting it on your shelf to keep.
