I have a Kindle myself and I enjoy being able to have more than one book on me at a time in a very convenient format. Books still have their place though. There’s enjoyment to the heft and feel of cracking into and eventually conquering a large novel. Textbooks might have figures and charts that work better on a page than being reformatted for an ebook. Finally, comic books really shine on the page and get better flow than on ereaders, in my experience. The whole zoom in and slide around a comic book page has not been enjoyable in the admittedly few that I have tried.
Today’s Cyanide and Happiness comic points out one other feature traditional books have over ereaders. Posted after the jump.
