H no covers falling apart, pages slipping out.
I no getting up to go search for a new book when I finish one.
j no lugging a backpack around if I am going to be gone for a few days.
my E-reader has an estimated years supply of reading, all near instantly accessable.
Just read as fast as my eyes can read and my finger can caress the page turn button.
Its bloody awesome! I enjoy reading much more than I used to, not less.
So basically to get the maximal pleasure from an ebook reader, you need to be inept with paper books, physically disabled, and passive.
I do agree with some of the points though! Perfect-bound paperbacks will fall apart too quickly, and bad storage can lead to some nastiness on the mold front.
