    eBook readers are wonderful if you are reading the book from cover to cover but as soon as you need to jump around in the book, they get cumbersome very quickly.

    I get this, I really do.

    This is a fine example of where different people's physical capabilities come into play.

    Having been partially blind and fine/gross motor impaired all my life, print books have always been a struggle. You can't resize the font in a print book, and you can't do a keyword search either :)

    There are all kinds of reasons why people might prefer them, and I would never try to convince them otherwise, because you need to do what works for YOU, but for me? ebooks all the way :)

    The only exception is comics and graphic novels, where I still vastly prefer the printed page, in part due to the rendering of the art.
