    A study recently found that reading is done 10% slower on an e-book than with its paper counterpart. I guess as readers gain more experience and skill with e-books, however, the difference in reading speeds will decrease. For myself I prefer paper anyway because I like to underline passages with ink. There’s just something aggressive and yes, physical, about reading with a pen in hand that appeals to me.

    Call me old school, but I still don’t see the value in buying a device for $100-200 that will enable me to read books that I will still pay for, when I could just get the book on Amazon instead. Then again, I am a fan of older books (military aviation reference, for example) that haven’t made it to eBook format, and probably never will. While I see the value in it for some, I just don’t think the eBook format is going to be a world-beater, and will be more of a nichey thing.
