From the Newark Advocate:

“The Association of American Publishers reported in February that sales of so-called “e-books” — such as Kindle — now for the first time exceed sales of either hardcover or paperback books. Sales were about $70 million in January for e-books as compared to $49 million for hardcovers and $39 million for paperbacks.”

    Mainly because I love the feel of a book in my hands. I have enough technology around me, I don’t necessarily need one more piece of it. Holding a “real” book in my hands is a guilty pleasure.
