Wil Wheaton has an awesome post on why print books are not likely to ever be fully replaced by digital books.
“an eReader sitting on a nightstand doesn’t say “pick me up and read me” the same way a book does”

Once upon a time I might have agreed but now that we’re not reading children’s books… I have to admit that I choose an ebook over a paper book every single time.
It’s diversity that makes the world move on–and while I’m much slower than most to adopt new technology, I see the appeal of ebooks, I honestly do.
I’m just more comfortable with the physicality of the printed page, and in the security that a) I own my copy beyond the power of the publisher or distributor to delete it, and b) I do not depend on anything other than my eyes to access the content within the pages.
