What are their advantages and disadvantages when compared with paper books?

I'd say the primary advantage is that they take less space so you can take half a library with you wherever you go. Tricky to do that with physical books, pricey too :p

Of course the things not working without power is bit of a downside... though this time of year I guess I couldn't read a physical book without power either.

My answer is somewhat complicated.

Short answer first: No, I don't "read e-books".

Now the other one.

Yes, I have E-books. Yes, I use E-books. Yes, I write E-books. and so on.


I use them as reference material, I use them as sources for articles, and like that.

Other than my own, I don't think I have ANY fiction in that format.

I've got everything from encyclopedias to the works of Flavius Josephus as an E-book, and more different translations of the Bible than I can name or count, at least two translations of the Holy Quran, and 'the Hammer of the Witches' in electronic, and SEARCHABLE format.
