Why ebooks are better than Printed books.

Postby fergus1234 » 10 Aug 2018, 10:41

One of the best hobbies I can brag about is that I love to read. Reading is an exercise that keeps my head sharp. I also remember the scientific finding that people who reads have less chances to get Alzheimer's. I owe my creativity, resourcefulness and articulateness with reading. For sure watching visual media is super entertaining while being entertained by book is more challenging, I still read because it feeds my imagination instead of just relying with visuals. I use to buy printed books whenever I wanted to read a title but these days I prefer ebooks because of several reason. The following below are my top 8 reasons why ebooks are better than Printed books.

8. You can have copies of books not printed on your country. A book might have been banned in your country or it just happened to be not released on your country. With the internet, You will be able to have copies of those books if you know how to search well. Erotica books are banned in my country but I am able to read a lot of them. Books that criticizes my country's government are also banned in my country but I am able to read a copy of it.


7.Ebooks are cheaper!
The digital copy of a book is usually cheaper than a printed copy.

6. You can read embarrassing book titles without everyone knowing.
Image This Dog is reading Fifty shades of Grey in public. People will now think she is a pervert because she is reading a scandalous title on front of many people. When you are reading a printed book and you are reading an embarrassing and shameless title, You don't want people to know your are reading it. Well people will know what you read because they can see the book cover.

This cat might be reading the cringy book Modelland by Tyra Banks and no one will know because it is on a kindle.
Image
He is reading a book people laugh but his friends and family will never know.



5. It saves you from clutter!
Image
When I was a teenager I am a such a mess because my room is filled with scattered books. I have to clean them up and organize them on a shelf. Now I have clutter on my room. I am more minimalistic and I can save some space on my home while having a wide arrange of books that I can read on my free time.

4.It saves you space!
Image
You can have a collection of thousands of books inside a kindle, a smartphone ,tablet or a laptop even if you live on a small apartment or a small cabin in the countryside. You have a portable library at the palm of your hands. You can have the ultimate book collection even though it will be impossible to fit thousands of books inside your house.

3.Mother Nature will thank you!
Image
Imagine all the trees being cut just to give you a hardcover paperback! Less Animals will lose their habitat because less trees will be cut down just to be turned into paper. Oh When you buy brand new books, it is covered in plastic. Less plastic will be on the dump if you have books on digital or electronic copy.

2. You can share a copy for your friends to read.
Image
You read a great book and you wanted your friend to read it. You can simply send your friend a pdf copy via bluetooth and your friend will have his or her own copy.

1. It is easier to buy and get a copy of an ebook.

Image
Look at these Harry Potter fans, They camped out outside the bookstore so they can buy the copy of the then latest book. Imagine falling in a long line just to get a copy of a book. You can have a copy of the latest hit book without falling in long lines of people.

I will go for an ebook for ease and convenience. I can have the information I need every time. People who know where I work think that I know the answer to every question. Thank God, our code is saved on my phone. I can have an easy access to whatever concern being referred to me especially when I am in public.

I don't mind to read ebooks because that is a great way to save papper and our trees :), besides books made of papper get old and yellow with time, they fill space and everytime you move it is a pain to put all of them in boxes. Ebooks you save them in online storage, usb discs, phone, etc and can be access everywhere :).

I will still use printed books, my dream someday is to have a library in my house, because I love the feeling of having a book in my hands. ;) I don't like reading stories on my phone or my iPad because I get a headache quickly when I'm reading on them. :thumbdown:

I like touching printed books and, their smell, it's contagious. However, I do agree with a forest point. Nature deserves more.

I also like printed books. Reading e-books for long time is not good for health.

I can not read e-books for a long time as it strains my eyes. I still feel good to flip over pages of a real printed book. But we can not deny the fact that e-book is in demand and is the need of the time to save trees.

One major thing for me is that the phone can read the ebook to me so I can do other things!

I love ebooks for the fact that they are simple and friendly. You can read them while on the go be on a mobile device or laptop. Additionally, many of them are shorter but with real information.

Its a good thing to have ebooks but it also has its pros and cons. I wouldn't mind having a few printed copies that can go a long way without loosing them if kept or stored well.

Not really, paper books can get ripped, They get dusty, they attract bugs, trees died, You are not allowed to have multiple copies and you have to bookmark the page you are reading if you need a break.
