Paper Books Are Better Than Ebooks

Book means paperback or hardbound. This is what we have learnt and seen since our childhood but the times are changing. Now there is another option, relatively cheaper and easier to obtain in the form of EBook. Don’t you sometimes feel that with the advancement of internet and online technologies it seems as if eBooks may replace paper books in future?

Applications like kindle have gained so much popularity that they get the books they want over their mobile phone in minutes. They do not need to go to the bookstore any more. An interaction with some of those who prefer

reading eBooks over paper books revealed that those people do it just because they get the books cheap and easy.

It is not that they love to read books on the computer screen, tablet or mobile phones but because of the ease of availability. Despite all, the book lovers have their reasons why they prefer books made of paper over eBooks. 

• Reading eBooks requires battery/electricity while paper books do not
To read eBooks the major requirement is that the


mobile phone should have proper charging. As soon as the battery is discharged you may not read your book anymore.
In case of paper books only thing you require is light. If there is enough illumination you may continue to enjoy your books as long as you want to.

• Reading eBooks is tiring
To read eBooks requires stress on eyes. It is stressful to read eBooks. You may read 100 pages of paper books but when it comes to eBooks the same does not hold true. The mind starts to give up early in case of eBooks.

• Reading eBook is less comfortable than paper book
To read eBooks it is required that you sit in a particular posture while you may sit you like in case of paper books. Though some might argue that paper books and tablets offer this comfort but the comfort to eyes is greater in case of paper books.
