The Battle of Real Books vs. E-Books
There's something to be said about a lightweight, portable device that can hold hold thousands of e-books in one place. It lightens your textbook load, leaves less book clutter in your room and reduces paper waste. Also, it's just plain cool.
But e-book readers are still a pricey alternative to physical books. Amazon's Kindle and Barnes and Noble's Nook are both priced at $259 a pop, while Sony's Reader ranges from $199 to $299. You also have to buy e-books -- some of them are as cheap as 99 cents, and others are as expensive as a regular paperback.
So, will e-books replace physical books eventually? You tell us.
