Something you couldn't do with an e-book

With an e-book, you couldn't make a handbag - see these great handbags on Etsy. One of the joys of the physical book is the creativity that comes into re-using the book. Who said books are only for reading? You can hide many things in them, as another Etsy site shows us. Of course, there is also the pang of remorse related to such operations upon a book. However, spoonfulofchocolate assures us: "No pages are harmed during the purse making process.. I take gently used books and only use the covers. I then take the sleeve and wrap it back on to the fully in-tact book and donate it to a Refugee Center here in Arizona called the IRC."
