    easy to maintain

  2. KAJOL RAJBANSHI [3] argued:

    They are more intersting & small printed books
    looks really cute .

    If the world ran out of power for some reason, all the e-books and electronic readers in the world would soon become useless. Print books, on the other hand, could still be readable during the daylight hours. They also smell and feel nice.

    Also, as a web designer, so much of my life is already spent in front of a screen. It’s much more relaxing for me to read a physical book.

    There is something about the way you feel when you read them. you can smell them. With print books there is more sense of progression because you actually have pages to turn. With an ebook, yes your still making progress, but there isn’t any physical evidence that your getting anywhere. Also print books are made to curl up on the couch with.

    less strain on the eyes.
    and you get to immerse yourself in the whole “book-reading” experience.
    the scent and texture of the books pages, the fact that you can bring it anywhere (no wifi limitations!:p), and the fact that it’s a great conversation starter.

    you can read in the toilet

    I want something tangible.

  11. Anonymous [1698] argued:

    Because a print book is a tangible thing i can hold in my hands and look at, i don’t have to deal with lagging or slow loading, and page turning is just so much more suspenseful than scrolling.

I prefer Digital ebooks rather than Print books

  1. Denis [67] argued:

    You need one small reader rather than tons of books and tons of dust on them.
    Actually, I’ve got some 10000 printed books in my apartment collected by my dad – it’s awful, they take more place than I do:)
    And e-books are cheaper (actually free if you know where to search).

  2. Anonymous [1698] argued:

    I really like to collect Print books, but first of all they’re more expensive, and secondly you can’t just throw away print book if you don’t like it.

    I prefer digital ebooks, why spend money and trees to make printed books
