5 Ways Paper Books Are Better Then eBooks

Richard MacManus on ReadWriteWeb got some indignation from supporters of paper books for his article about five ways he prefers ebooks to paper books. The next day he came out with Five Ways That Paper Books Are Better Than eBooks:

  1. Feel (thank goodness smell wasn't mentioned again)
  2. Packaging
  3. Sharing
  4. Keeping
  5. Second hand books

I can't say I'd thought of packaging as a bonus, but now I do; missing images that were there is a little sad. On the other hand, sometimes it's good that people can't tell what book you're reading on an ebook reader if you don't particularly want people to know you like vampire romance novels or something.
