Print vs. Ebook
In the distant past, a person who owned numerous books, possessing personal libraries, was a luxury of only the wealthy. Seeing thousands of novels in one setting would draw the attention of any normal person. Today, the average reader are beginning to leave the printed word behind and make the switch to digital. Monitors and digital readers take the place of bounded pages.
Some may believe we are slowly being tossed in to Jetson’s age where homes and businesses exist high in the sky and everyone drives flying cars. However, few still hold on to the written word that was cherished so dearly once upon a time. I possess well over a hundred books in my collection. Some stories I love. Others I would drop in a bargain bin if given the chance. Something about reading a book on a computer screen rather than physical pages takes away from the experience. You don’t get the same feeling.
Question is will we evolve so far in to the digital age that the printed word gets left behind? Will convenience trump what the world loved so much about leisure? Which do you prefer: print or ebook?
