I just bought a paper book for the first time in quite awhile because I was researching a topic and couldn't find an appropriate eBook. It wasn't too thick but it was quite large: 10 x 8 inches. I should have taken the dust jacket off, it gave me a paper cut on the web of my hand. Ouch! It still hurts.
You forget how to handle those things.

I've been borrowing some library pbooks on programming subjects a fair bit lately, as they've been updating that section recently.
As I have a Kobo Glo, it's a bit irritating when it's too dark to read and I reach up to the top right hand corner of the book and can't find a light button!!

I still like real books and I still buy them. I dont have a problem with remembering the page, because I always finish on a chapter and remember the chapter number. That's easy enough for me.
For example I plan to slowly buy/collect Gollancz SF masterworks and Fantasy masterworks collection when I finish my study. That is smth I would like to have in paperback, no matter the fact I read on kindle so much.

I haven't picked a paperback up since getting my kobo. I do still have a few on my shelf to read so maybe I'll give one a try to see how it goes.

I've actually been meaning to finish up my ebook copy of Phylis Eisenstein's "In the Red Lord's Reach" but I need to scan a couple of pictures from the book and put them into the epub. Haven't gotten around to it.
I still like hardcovers for my most favorite authors.

I just picked up a hardcover book to read and couldn't figure out why the page wouldn't turn when I tapped it with my thumb.
