The debate continues: How do you want to read the words in a book?

Would you prefer to have a book with “real” pages? Or is it acceptable, perhaps even better, to read a book electronically?

It’s hard to imagine — and we don’t want to — the time when you can’t walk through a library with books almost reaching from floor to ceiling. We seem to like the appeal of “real” books that we can see and touch and hold rather than words floating in cyberspace.
