I don't like e-books at all. Reading on the Kindle or iPad gives me a headache. I like printed words
on paper, call me a fossil. When I download something in PDF, I always print it out and read it on
paper. However, I'm not knocking the idea of scanned text, it's a tremendous resource. I don't mind
printing something out, especially if it's something that was previously rare or hard to find.
