1001 reasons a paper book is better than electronic book

aerodynamics • You can throw paper books at a yowling cat and not have to worry about violating the warranty.


NO limit on downloads •
There is a limit on the number of times you can download a book you bought for or from Amazon’s Kindle….and there is no way to tell how many times before you buy the book, only after you have hit the download ceiling. (from Consumerist)

unlimited notetaking • Kindle Clipping Limits- small percentage of Kindle text can be copied to notes, whereas I can copy and entire book into my notes if I need to.

you can share them • Amazon Kindle: Books You Can Never Share “You may not sell, rent, lease, distribute, broadcast, sublicense or otherwise assign any rights to the Digital Content or any portion of it to any third party, and you may not remove any proprietary notices or labels on the Digital Content. In addition, you may not, and you will not encourage, assist or authorize any other person to, bypass, modify, defeat or circumvent security features that protect the Digital Content.” so there.

    @lazylfarm: He forgot to say, "And so forth," to cover the rest of the 1001. That lazy ba$tard. 🙂
