Electronic Review Copies

Here's an interesting essay about print vs. electronic review copies.

I will read a book on my computer only as a last resort.  That is, if it's something by a person I know and love, or a topic that I adore, and/or has utterly hooked me already, then I'm willing to risk a headache reading it.  Otherwise, pretty much not.  I already spend so much time in front of a computer that the last thing I want to do is have to read a whole book on a screen.  Same thing largely kills my interest in ebooks.  My eyes need the break looking at paper that doesn't glow.
