Anything free is having no psychological value even how precious it might be,  after downloading e-book for free and reading few sentences are enough to make it useless, while we pay for Paper books and feel the tangible asset in our hands. Every page we move through our fingers, feel like a character in a book. We have more freedom to use it anywhere and anytime.

I can't read serious kind of reading from e-books, for light and funny material I prefer e-books more. 

Not a bad idea to have both; a copy of paper-book and a copy of e-book. Sometimes we can save important references from e-books for research work which definitely save time spend on rewriting.

I think the value of a paper book is more than ebooks as u said,because not only the price of the ebook,but because the paper book is something concret that we can touch and deal with,that's why it seems more preferable than pbooks ;)

For me ,reading ebooks causes strain on the eyes. I spend over 9 hours per day in front of the computer at work , at home there is no way I am going to use any kind of computers. 

Also, what Saladeen said makes sense.  Free things, at least in case of books doesn't hold much psychological value

I prefer reading e-book to paperbook , why ?

You dont have to spend much money to buy an e-book. with low cost,you still can get same contents with paperbook.But if I want to buy a book for a collection, I will buy a paper book.

But we know together that the radiation emitted from monitor to our health.But we can minimalize that effects.

If your read not is more, I think you use the traditional paper book.
