Absolutely agree with that! Also, I’m a packrat by nature, and I hate buying a book I don’t like and then needing to find “shelf space” (i.e., a box in the basement ) or a new home for it. Ebooks let me buy more books guilt- and hassle-free.All excellent points. Part of that ephemeral nature is what makes digital books so very powerful, as well, though. I can read the same digital "copy" on my phone, iPad, or computer, anywhere I may be -- whether in line, at the library, on my lunch, or at the beach. The fluidity and flexibility comes at a cost.
