eBooks

Hybrid reading

Print books aren't going away, people. And B&N's Jim Hilt agrees:

Despite the popularity of eReaders, Hilt warns booksellers not to get carried away with eBooks. “The idea that the print book is going to die some slow long death is actually a fallacy,” he said.

I love ebooks, it is true. I also love "real" books, and I always will. I buy lots of both kinds, and plan on continuing that into the near future.

It generally comes down to price. If I can get the eBook for cheaper than a print copy (usually used), eBook it is. However, if there is a new novel from one of my favorite authors I am not against paying $13 for the eBook since I hardly ever re-read novels.
