When it comes to ebooks, I pretty much share Maurice Sendak's view:
Unfortunately, it became necessary for me to purchase a Kindle. And I feel icky about it. I've been staunchly against reading ebooks personally. Books are such a great great thing to me that the thought of replacing them with cold, sterile metal/plastic is the most unappealing, unappetizing thing. Also, I hate reading things off of screens. I have to look at screens all the time: my computer, my phone, etc., I like the something new.
However, about a year ago, I got a new job and moved halfway across the country. Because my job is kind of awesome, I get 4 months of during the summer, during which I spend about a month of that time in Virginia. While I'm in VA, I always want something to read, or I find myself wishing I had a particular book for reference, or a random reread and the last thing I want to do is cart that book back home. So, now I see how a Kindle has suddenly become useful. I can read my books and keep a reference library with me without having to deal with the move. And if I find a new book I like, I won't have any problems buying the print version when I get back home.
Nothing replaces the tactile pleasure of a real book. The feel of the pages, the weight of it, the fresh smell of old (or new) paper. However, I see how ebooks do have a useful place in the world of books, much like audiobooks have a place as well.
In the end, though, a good story will be a good story, no matter the format.
Even though print is still the best :P
