Paperback or E-books?

DH and I want to start reading books to prepare ourselves.  Some of the recommended books like the ones by Dr. Sears are available as ebooks.   I guess my silly question is, if you have read these books, did you find it more helpful to have the physical copy at hand so that you can flip back and forth easily?  It is it just fine to have the e-version?  I just hate have to add more to my physical library given the limited space in our apartment but I haven't owned a "reference" ebook before.

I'd probably go with a paperback version. I have a few different pages bookmarked already in what to expect when your expecting, but I'm not a fan of e-books so I'm not sure how easily it is to search info...

I love having ebooks, but with something like this, I'm going paperback.

I prefer physical books for reference...like Baby Bargains...really helped us decide on things like crib, stroller, car seat, carrier, etc.

Jackie, did that book really help? I just figured I'd research all that online.

Yes...I like it a lot...it's all together...so you don't have to go to a bunch of websites (like manufacturer's sites)....plus I already know some stuff I want based on referrals from friends.
