Recently, E-Book readers such as Amazon's Kindle and Barnes and Noble's Nook are all the rage, and it's easy to see why.
Imagine sitting in a coffee shop and getting the random urge to read a certain novel. Instead of having to put down your double mocha frappa-whatever-it-is and drive over to the nearest book store or library (who might not even have the title you want in stock), you can just wirelessly download it directly to your E-Book reader, which has enough memory to hold hundreds of books. Neat, huh?
E-Book titles are usually fairly priced (some are actually free), and also support things like digital magazines and audio books. They also save on valuable shelf space.
However, sometimes nothing can beat the feel of a good ol' book in your hand. They're often cheap, don't break if you drop them, no electricity is required (so you never have to worry about a battery going kaput on you), and direct sunlight actually makes reading easier instead of creating a glare on a screen.
Also, many obscure or niche works might never end up on a Kindle or Nook, which tend to focus more on popular releases. And let's not forget that many E-Books are created by scanning the pages of their base novels using word recognition software that, at times, seems not to have greatest grasp on the English language.
Our question is: E-Books or Real Books?
