I guess I'm just saying that the title of the video ought to reflect that it's the first in a 3-part series rather than selling itself as a video going over 9 reasons in 10 minutes. Because it's not. There's nothing wrong with doing a series of videos, but if you do that you need to label your videos appropriately with suffixes like "part 1" or "1 of 3" or "reasons 1 through 3".

Also, the video doesn't even get to the first reason until about 6 minutes in. The first 5 minutes are a funny but otherwise irrelevant anecdote about how traditional publishing works for an unknown author. That leaves about a minute per reason, which means all 9 reasons could've been covered in a single 9-10 minute video.
I agree it isn't titled the best, but that's a common failing with homemade youtube vids I think. Much like with fanfics since anyone can post the quality will vary.

The march of technology stops for no one. This applies to all forms of technology, including reading entertainment. As such, the ebook, whether it be via a tablet like Apple’s iPad or ereader like Amazon’s Kindle, is taking the place of the traditional book. But not so fast, world! Take time to appreciate what could be lost. Here’s why books are better than ebooks – and the reasons aren’t merely sentimental. Click the link to read more about this.
I strongly prefer real books to ebooks. I prefer them in nearly every way. Unfortunately, my living space has been drastically reduced. Even before that occurrence, I had a shortage of space. Reality rules with an iron hand.

I prefer real ebooks to those dead-tree things in every way. I have plenty of space but I won't buy a pbook even when it is much cheaper than the ebook -- although in that case I might not get the ebook either.

(Watching the video about the 3rd pic it says Episode 1.)

I agree the intro should be tightened up a bit. Also number 1 was talked about, but 2 and 3 were not given equal time. If not enough info is given...why should I continue to watch?

It just isn't the same without the remains of a slaughtered tree in my hands.

I don't think we should be too eager to bash paper books. First those will never go totally out of fashion (or at least I hope they won't) for they are a huge part of the human experience, they have been around for centuries and I have read a lot of them before the advent of electronic books.
I don't think we should just forget about those like we did vinyl discs after the advent of CD's DVD's Blurays ...

Those who touch my books get buried in the basement. I hope the new Santa doesn't make the same mistake.
