I prefer e-readers cuz i always get crap on my books or something and than with the kindle I can just wipe it off. Don't ask me how i get stuff on things i don't know. although if its for a class or something like that i prefer real books so i can hi-light and leave notes in the margin. Margin and maragine look very similar to me by the way. I like the idea of have a stick of maragirine too the side and leaving little notes, but than someone would come and use it to cook with even though i prefer butter. anyways I prefer e-readers maybe i've always prefered the future over the past/present. though i am learning to appreciate the present.
