I believe you meant to say "paper books"
I'm pretty sure most people's definition of a book includes paper and pages and stuff like that. A scroll is not a book either, even if it carries the same text.
Interesting how there is not (yet) a clearly defined way to distinguish medium and content because of the lack of need / ability to differentiate though.


I don't think I could get rid of my paper books. Ever. I feel a lot more cofortable in rooms with lots of books, usually. I will probably continue buying most my books in the paper medium, too - the e-book reader is (at least for now I think so) mostly a traveling convenience to me, that I'll mostly use for copyright free books.
