Prefer paper ebooks because of its portability and possibility of note taking.

I am ok with both. Though for novels I still prefer flipping papers.
My thoughts exactly.

But the reason I love ebooks is because they are instant gratification. If I see something online and I want it now, I don't have to wait to get my hands on it.

I can always download it to my PDA if I want to take it with me.

I like both but i prefer paper books because you never forget the things which you have read in paper books. That's why my vote is with paper books.

My personal opinion is paper is better than e-book because it is easy for me to read text on paper as compare to computer. Yes another good reason is portability of book as compare to e-books.
The only reason behind my dislike to paper is environment. A book use so many trees for paper printing. I think it is a waste of paper which is harmful for environment.

I'd still prefer the paper books rather than e-books. I just feel like I can concentrate more in my reading when I've the real book with me although there are some books that I like to read online. For students it's better still to go for paper books because it's still the best when reviewing or studying something.

Actually I prefer to both of them. I take full information about a topic so I refer e-books. Paper helps me to find new questions.
