Same. I really don't like reading books on-screen which is the biggest reason why I did not buy in on this nice deal. That and I already have the most interesting books on that list physically.I usually don't like to read books on a screen. But 15$ for that many books is a steal!

I would not be so sure. Storage is a cost. If you must get rid of something that you consider hard to sell you can go as low as thinkable with the price. The hard limit is the cost of trashing.You can't sell that many physical books for that little money. Unless perhaps they are second-hand.
Oh Trihexagonal , my view is really the opposite, nowadays I have a copy of all my book in pdf, so i can bring them with me all the time. And take notes! I bought a big iPad with pen, it was the best investment of last year.Books in .pdf format are the absolute worst for reading IMO.
I used to have an iPad 2 (way back when) on which I read PDF or epub documents and I could take notes, underline, mark, just like a real book! But the more notes I took in such a virtual book, the longer it took to load it once closed. So I stopped doing that.nowadays I have a copy of all my book in pdf, so i can bring them with me all the time. And take notes! I bought a big iPad with pen, it was the best investment of last year
You should try the new big iPad, it is quite far from a $300 iPad mini of a few years ago. The pen is really something. I have only one complaint, after hours and hours the eyes hurt. My iPad is A4, there is not such a thing as a little image I can also add pages to the book to put my notes and schemes.But the more notes I took in such a virtual book, the longer it took to load it once closed. So I stopped doing that. ...
Also I don't like how the pictures are displayed all small and you have to click to open the image and zoom in. That's really annoying. Plus you can't easily flip through the book to search something so I still prefer a real book for studying.
That said I do try to keep the PDF versions so I can quickly <Ctrl+F> something when I need to look something up.
When online, I'm listening to music though headphones, may have the TV on in the background and can read from reference material while writing when working on Demonica for hours on end.I agree, real paper book is the absolute best for true study. But, when you have done the study and it is time for reference, the PDF is better.
