Well, one thing wrong with paper books is that I don't want to have to buy a ebook for me and a paper copy of a book if my daughter wants to read it, too. I don't loan out my Sony reader - I'd go crazy without it, so each person in my family has his/her own Sony reader so we can share books. We don't all read all the same things, but there is a lot of overlap.
