i love e-books for there many advantages, but there is just something about that paper. it makes me feel like am really there with the writer, i put it on my lap and i can go on and on. with the e-book, i just get tired.
I prefer the ebook. Its easier to carry around... Paper books can be bulky sometimes.
E-books are great but like every other transient technology they will go. They may not spread the word as fast as one would like in the developing parts of the world. There is something so personal, so infilling, so elevating about the printed word. It may face the seasons and insects but all true readers know it lives in our hearts forever. Give me a paperback any day though I am not anti e-book.
e-books are mobile, I load them on my phone -lots of them- and read them anytime and anywhere, but then that is no reason not to keep a physical library.
Owing to the obvious effects the screen leaves on my eyes when I stare at it for long, I would rather read a paper book than an e-book.
