This goes for me as well.
I'm now leaning towards e-books when I can because my eyesight is going south (a bit) and my arms are not growing longer.
Another reason I lean towards e-books is that I tend to like loooong stories and it is much easier to read 1000 pages on a 200g device than hold a 1kg door stopper.
But I am one of those people who likes to re-read and I have many hundreds of paper books so I'm not going to stop reading paper books any time soon.
I may stop buying them. Or not. I have
bought paper books since I got my first e-reader (I'm on my third) so maybe I'll never stop buying paper books...
About the only time when I go exclusively e-book is when I go in holiday or on a short trip for 2-3-4 days as I will not longer carry paper books with me. Also, when in holiday or on a trip my reading likes/dislikes seem to sometimes change a bit (weird huh?) so I'm glad to have my e-reader stocked with books of about 3-4 genres (and I usually take a few old favourites just in case) if I feel I don't want to read whatever book I was in the middle of as the plane takes off.
