At a certain type of BBQ or dinner party the printed book versus e-reader debate is always likely to break out.

Printed book defenders tend to be more forceful and emotional in their advocacy.

Their preference for the printed book is based on intangible factors such as the feel of a book and the smell of a book. A deep passion that the traditional book is the right and proper way to read and should never be allowed to die is evident.

E-reader advocates tend to see it as a no brainer and point to more functional advantages such as lighting , weight and cost.
