My son's school has two versions of Geometry, which he will take next year. One version uses an online textbook. The other doesn't, in other words, it uses a ___________. What word or phrase may I put in the blank, aside from "old-fashioned paper and cardboard" or "actual book"?
Sample usage (must not be deprecating tone):
From your explanation of the difference between R and H Geometry, I would have thought R would be a good fit for my younger son. But then I read that R uses an online text and H uses a ______________ book. He has had a lot of trouble using online resources. I step away for three seconds to let the cat out, and he's opened another tab and is watching Monty Python, NBA basketball, or what have you. It's part of his OCD.
E.g. "an actual book" conveys my idea but I'm hoping for something more graceful.
