I love reading paper books. The process of perusing bookstore and library shelves. The feeling of turning pages and the way they smell.
A few years ago, my husband bought me a Nook from Barnes and Noble so I could download e-books and have them at my fingertips. But I must admit that after a few uses, it now sits unused on my nightstand.
Why? Because reading books in print gives me an experience reading e-books doesn't.
And I'm not alone. Over half of kids ages 6 to 17 prefer to read in print, according to a recent report from Scholastic.
