    I can get on the smartphone and maybe even the tablet bandwagon… but I have a hard time with e-readers. Maybe I'm just old fashioned (and please don't confuse old fashioned with just plain OLD, because I'm in my mid-twenties), but I think something gets lost about a book when it's not on paper. It's not as tangible, doesn't have as much of a history to it. Without even getting into the details about how e-readers lower reading speed and comprehension and increase eye strain, I feel like books just have a little something more to offer. I can't imagine trading in the Bible my father gave me for some super-electronic version, or even my old beaten-up copy of “The Princess Bride.” Just my two cents.
