ebook versus the printed page

I have loved books all my life, from my first board books as a baby until today. The satisfying feel of the weight of a book in my hand, the smell of the paper, the sound of the turning page, the varied print and illustrations to feast my eyes upon.

Now comes the ebook. The physical senses are not stirred in the same way, but the imagination can still take flight and soar.

Does the arrival of the ebook herald the death of the printed word? Or will the two media complement each other?

What do you think?
