I much prefer print books to ebooks for pleasure reading. I find that I'm less distracted and therefore can be more absorbed in what I'm reading. That said, I do like reading things online for class so that I can search it.

Also, books don't run out of battery. :)

e-ink readers last a month on a single charge. But then again, there's a huge difference between a tablet for reading and an e-ink tablet. E-ink tablets lack all of those fancy facebook bells and whistles. They're kind of in their own category.
