E-books have their advantages and disadvantages, and so work better in
some situations than others.  E-books FTW on the journey to/from work.
E-books FTW as searchable references (but only if you can search them
using standard tools).  E-books FTlose on long journeys cos I don't have
enough battery on my phone.  E-books FTlose if they include diagrams or
tables.  E-books FTlose for giving as presents.
