I print the book. However, I print it 9-up to save paper. I like
having the hard copy to read on the train.
Unfortunately, this sometimes has the side-effect of making 1 (one)
and l (ell) difficult to distinguish, though I've built enough times
that I usually guess right. (I recall once spending quite some time
trying to figure out why GRUB couldn't find menu.1st.) And during my
last build I couldn't figure out why
cp -sv libbz2.so* /lib
wouldn't work. (The options are -av, of course.)
