I prefer print editions because they have greater value. If it's a great book, I'll put it on the bookshelf. If it's merely a good book, I'll pass it on to someone else (who is likely to pass it on to yet someone else, thus multiplying the effect). I would make an exception if I were stuck on an Amtrak train south of Trenton, or I were in the hospital or needed the book right away.
One of the awful things about e-books I've noticed recently is that often enough I don't know the name of the book or (even more often) the name of the author, because instead of picking up the physical book off the night table, I pick up a generic black-cased Fire tablet, and the book opens to the Furthest Page Read.
"Hey, I just read a great book lately!"
"Really? What was it?"
"Um, I'm really not sure...."
