Sure, there’s something lost in the transition from paper to screen, but the convenience and storage capacity of Kindle readers, or phones and tablets using e-book software, far outweighs the compromises. Except when the opposite is true.  Some books work better, or only, in physical format. We’ve compiled some of our favorites for a special Holiday Gift Guide edition of CNET Book Club, where we talk about awesome art books, tabletop books and just plain strange books that will never translate well to a Kindle screen. On the plus side, they make excellent real-world holiday gifts, and look better wrapped up than an e-book gift code. Many brick-and-mortar book stores are open until the wee hours in the days before Christmas, so there’s still time to get someone an awesome nondigital gift. Disclaimer: CNET may earn commission from the products featured on this page.  CNET Book Club: Holiday 2018 Gift Guide Specialcenter_img Post a comment Share your voice Holiday Gift Guide 2018 CNET Book Club E-bookslast_img
