We can try to pinpoint various reasons to explain the slow start ebooks are experiencing, like copyright issues and drm, but the real reason is precisely this: at equal price, WE PREFER PAPER. The key to seeing the ebook market take off is to lower the price of electronic editions versus paper books, and to offer cheaper ebook readers too, obviously. Even then, paper books will always be more popular, at least until the tricorder is invented!
