Yes, there is something about paper documents... the warmth when you take it
out of the copy machine... the fresh fragrance of ozone... the paper cuts...
the sheer weight of 50 copies on 20# paper... the technical errors on pages
23-24, 56-59, 124... oops, time for a reprint!

By the way, isn't it nice to live through the new millennium? (And don't
give me any crap about the millennium starting next year!)
Anyone have any technical hiccups while transitioning to 1900?

And there is something lovely about holding a printed book in your hand,
feeling the paper cover, smelling the ink, flipping through the pages. Can't
be replicated by anyhting else.

And I can't read an ebook in bed to go to sleep, which is where I do much of
my reading. Took my new husband a while to adjust to it but now he knows my
brain must simply vanish into a book for 20 minutes or so before it can shut
off for the night. And before I started sleeping in my contacts, (oh, please
God, let 2000 by the year I get my eyes fixed!) I also had the most
frustrating problem of being so very near sighted that I can't see a printed
page unless it is against my nose. Difficult to manage that with an ebook.
