I think e-books are nice, most allow you to highlight without issue. In fact I prefer the e-books if I will be highlighting since I hate marking up books! (I'm a book collector so it just gets under my skin.) Where I can't use e-books I take notes on paper outside the book anyway. The rental e-books can be a pain since they go away when the rental is over but so would the real book.

Another nice kindle feature is when you're using the kindle app on your computer (instead of the device itself) you can highlight text and cut & paste from it, so if you're writing a report or something, you can easily quote from your sources. It even inserts it into your document with the proper APA/MLA quoting format and citations. You don't even need to own an actual Kindle to use that.
