- You can read in the dark. I love this! At the end of the day, sometimes I'd rather relax by reading a book than watching television. In these admittedly rare instances, I like the fact that I can turn off the lights and sit in bed with my Kindle. It's quiet and relaxing.
- You only have to tote around one thing! You can put hundreds of books on your e-reader, but you can't exactly carry around hundreds of paper books with ease. It's nice that when I'm at work and I get to the end of one book, I can easily start up a new book on the same device. Otherwise, I would've have had to bring two books to work with me or I would've been bored when I finished the first one. This is also good if you like to read multiple books at once. You can just go back and forth.
- Save the trees, man! I'm not as environment conscious as I probably should be, but I do think this is a notable win for the e-reader. How many thousands of pages are no longer being printed every year because we're just downloading our books? I'm sure the numbers are crazy.
- You can prop it up to read. I like to read on my lunch break. I'm currently reading a paper book that I'd bought years ago and never actually read until now. I'm now finding it exceedingly difficult to read while eating. I have to make sure to hold the book in a way to where the book actually stays open. This is hard to do when I'm trying to eat. Multitasking, man! But when I use my Kindle, I just prop it up against something on my desk and then I have both hands free to read. Yay multitasking!
- It takes up less space. As much as I like having a nice bookshelf full of pretty books, it can be kind of overwhelming to find room when you want to keep getting more and more books. With an e-reader, you simply have all your books on one portable device. Which is great because boxes of books are heavier than they look. I discovered this last time I moved.
- You can read from multiple devices. If you happen to forget your [e-reader of your choice] at home, you can always pick up reading on your smart phone or various other devices thanks to apps like the Kindle app. If you're reading a paper book and you don't have that paper book with you, you're kind of out of luck unless you've mastered telepathy. And you can telepathically communicate with inanimate objects. But if that's the case, this entire blog post doesn't really relate to you.
So that's my opinion. Of course, there are pros to having a physical copy of a book as well. But, for me, the pros of eBooks far exceed those points.
What's your opinion? Physical books or eBooks? Or are you undecided? I'd love to hear from you!

And, on my end, I will stop my friends from annoying the shit out of you. Although, to be fair, it really is way too damn easy.
