I like paper books better than e-reader books. I do not have to look for a power outlet to recharge my book at night. One less lcd screen, the better. I like the feel of a book in my hand and the ability to have less distractions when reading a paper book to my children. If I have a e-reader, they will be trying to play the games or access the videos. Saving the trees can be good, but a paper book will "go back to nature" a lot faster than an e-reader. People throw away electronics a lot faster nowadays than ever before. People still keep books alot longer than a computer, handheld, tablet, e-reader or mp3 player\ipod.
