Do you read you books online via Amazon, Kindle, Nook, PDF, etc? Or do you like to curl up with a paperback novel and read the old fasion way? Are paper books on thw way our or will they be around forever?

I love reading and had in excess of 500 books. We moved house and I had to get rid of some stuff, including at least half of the books.

Switching to Kindle was amazing. I now have no books. Everything is on Kindle. Initially, I missed the look, feel, weight and smell of books. Not anymore!

Travelling is even better. I now travel with every book I own. Effortlessly.

Get a Kindle!

I really enjoy ebooks and audiobooks over paper these days. Books are too fragile for me, I like to bring them everywhere so an ereader is super helpful.

Of course! Nothing beats the feel of turning over a page on a real book. I do have e-books myself, but it just is not the same.

I prefer a hand held book as opposed to looking at a screen. But, having a computer that can hold all of the weight twenty books that one can hold in one's hands is tough to beat. It has got to be a trade off.

Not all of what I might want to read can be found in a book just yet; just here in the digital space can it be found.

I hope books stick around. I don't like the fact that things can be change digitally so easily. If the wrong sorts of people want to direct the masses more effectively, all they have to do is change some words and say it has always been like it was. (It will drive us crazy knowing how much stuff they change to their liking.) Having a hard copy of a book, the words will not "magically" change anytime soon.

I read both. I read e-books when I'm on the go and paper books when I have time to sit down and relax.

I read books online or downloaded onto my computer. And I read printed books as well. If I am reading a novel I prefer printed books. They are easier on the eyes and I am more comfortable with them. Shorter books and stories and blogs are OK to read online.

that physical books can not be substituted: D.
Waiting for a bit of luck on my birthday. weeee!

Staring constantly on the screen can be exhausting for the eyes and brain.

Hi,
It depends on the situation or where you want to study if you love the technology then the ebook is better.
If you want to take care of your eyes then the paper book
According to me, paper book is preferable. however, we are about loose eyesight by watching this mobiles and computers day and night.

Do you prefer e-books over printed books? Here are the top 5 reasons why e-books are better.

In my opinion Paper Books is better than E-Books, because you can read in somewhere place in the time that you prefer

Printed books are better in terms of accurate information delivery.

All types of books are good. and Those who make them Excellent Books It is not your form If it is Physical or Electronic .. it is YOUR CONTENT.

A big no from my side because almost 7 million trees are cutting down just for papers and we all know nature is life. Some people disagree with me they thought physical books are more effective than e-books but I don't think so its mental level problem how focus you are to learn something.

Let's have a real-life example I am a University student and I belong a lower-middle-class family who is hardly affording my college fee and my living expenses and from last four years, I haven't bought a single page book. I have learned everything online absolutely free whether it is my own syllabus or magazines because I can't afford more money for buying books.
You can carry hundreds of e-books without any problem and you are also saving nature, that's amazing !
Thank you :-)

for me only physical books are, it is the essence of the book, ... PS: see if you ever choose me in your life: D

Hii @bunnypuncher in my opinion Paper books are better because we have the chance to pass each page and have a direct contact with the book, but in my case i read in PDF, because in Venezuela it is impossible to buy a book with all the economic problems, and in recent years most people read in pdf for that reason. In another point, digital books have a positive point because if we want a book urgently, we have the opportunity to find it and download it on the Internet. Greetings and thanks for this contest and opportunity.

I read both but any day I will prefer a paper book. I feel I can focus better when I am reading a paper per book. My eyes feel more relaxed with paper books as there is no flashing light on them.

Are paper books better than electronic books?

the reality is that everything in this life is an evolution; There is nothing like reading a book in physics, I mean on paper, and feeling the smell of paper, hugging the book, kissing it and even biting it; but as the world progresses and you have to go step by step with it, and at this moment there are audio books, electronic or digital books, which you can find in various formats. and you can read them on different devices like it is on the pc, on the lapto, mini lapto, android phones, but my favorite and favorite is on the tablet, you can also stop and pause reading, have your bookmarks and reread your favorite parts and your space for comments and even chat comments, to make references to the book and criticism, my conclusion is that a story, novel, story, poems; the way you read it; the most important thing is that you finish reading. you knew that reading this helps keep your brain active and this prevents suffering in a future time of Alzheimer's disease, so I most certainly invite you to experiment more often reading. but my favorite at this moment is the electronic book.

*For people who like technology, electronics will always be better.

  • I read my books in physical form
  • I like to snuggle up and enjoy them the old-fashioned way
    *Because there is no access to technology everywhere, I have a feeling that there will be a little more time in the physical world.

Yes paper books are better than e books due to following reason :
1.You can underline , highlight and write any short cut formula anywhere in the book without worrying that whether e books are editable or not .
2.Read books anytime anywhere in any condition without worrying about dying battery and recharging tab /mobile.
3.When you accumulate a lot of print books and put them on your shelf or table, it gives automatic impression on other people think that how much you love reading.
4.you dont have to wait to boot up your device , whereas in print book just select the topic and start reading.
5.You didnt give your device to anyone as they are breakable and costlier, whereas in print book you can easily ready to share it with someone.
6.A economically backward class student may easily buy used print book and learn them.
7.Print book does not locked with password just open and learn.
And the ultimate once is :
8.You can easily tore a page from print book and keep it safely during the exam in exam hall.

In my opinion, e-books are more used than paper books because in general or in the present we are in, it is more useful and more comfortable for the reader to use a tablet, phone or computer.

@bunnypuncher

I think that text written on paper is like vinyl. Some people will swear by it, but for convenience reasons, most of the time text will be read in a digital format.

From my perspective, e-books are better than paper books.

In this information technology age, e-books has developed significantly due to its amazing convenience. Specifically, Just by using a smartphone or a tablet, people are able to access tons of e-books with an ease, instead of bringing some books along. It's super useful and comfortable for those hesitating to open a paper book to read while books seem to be quite heavy and inconvenient.

However, some people find it hard to concentrate on reading e-books compared to paper books because they tend to do some stuff like checking their news feeds on social media such as Facebook and Instagram. In the case reading a paper book, they keep their phones away so it may be easier for them to focus on what they are reading on the books.

To sum up, although there are several potential drawbacks, I strongly believe that e-books are playing a greater role in reality than paper books are.

The treasures contained in the book are very priceless. Be a reader, and groom the hidden treasure.

Books are the carriers of civilization. Without books, history is silent, literature dumb, science crippled, thought and speculation at a standstill. They are engines of change, windows on the world, lighthouses erected in the sea of time

In the ideal world, I would prefer to read paper books in my well-supplied study. In the actual world, there are many benefits to my Kindle. I can get a book that I am interested in most often within minutes, I can carry a lot of books with me, and I can read at night lying next to my girlfriend without disturbing her.

Books are the quietest and most constant of friends; they are the most accessible and wisest of counselors, and the most patient of teachers.

Many small ways to expand the world of children. Love books is the best of everything,,As soon as I can read, I begin to know everything.

Books are the beginning of success. On this occasion we will present a collection of wise pearl words about Reading Books. Hope can be useful for you. Enjoy.

Practicing good reading habits will shape our thinking patterns into organized, systemic and genius. For that we must be diligent-diligent reading good books and quality and provide positive benefits for this life.

Reading is a very positive activity to continue doing. By reading we can add insight and gain new information useful to us. The scientific window will open through reading.

Reading, in a certain age, limits the thinking of creativity. People who read too much but too little to use their thoughts, will be exposed to laziness to think.

Those are the words of wisdom motivation about reading a book that super words share so that we become intelligent human and have wide insight. May be useful.

Become a book lover, befriend the book. The book will always be your assistant in many situations.

Books are a source of miracles. The person reading the book issued the miracle and made it always in him.

Book is a source of knowledge. Knowledge is the source of the solution. The solution is the source of happiness.

book is box9. treasure sack. If you can open the box then you will be flooded with priceless treasure.

Books are ice-breaking axes that can melt the frozen seas that lie within our souls

Reading can keep the heart from anxiety and keep time from futility.

Books can divert attention from the density of Commuter Line passengers
Of course, if the Commuter Line at certain hours can be very solid. Moreover Commuter Line route to Bogor. Well, by reading a good book at a high passenger Commuter Line passenger density can get rid of your annoyance at that crude service. In addition books can also lead you to the wisdom of life.

@bunnypuncher Books are for gaining knowledge, entertainment, philosophy etc. But all this we can have on steemit, ebooks etc Also ebooks are cheper , environmental friendly, and independent.
So, i love to read from ebooks.

Paperbooks are better because it won't damage your eyes reading even if you repeat reading it all over again. And paperbooks can be read even if you don't have an internet connection unlike e-books.

I prefer the books that I can touch

Ebook are better because you have many books in one

It makes no difference to me. If anything, the e-book is more convenient, being a lot smaller and holding more books.

E-book is environmentally friendly

Makin' random comments, and maybe they are and maybe they are not.

E-book is easy to carry and has a relatively small size

e-books are more perfect and more interesting

I prefer to read a paper books, but I end up reading ebooks for convenience and price :p

the use of e-books more convenient and awake for use.

Ebook is much better for travel, but I find I buy ebooks and then never read them, just like having a Steam game backlog! If I have a physical book, I'm more likely to actually sit down and read...

The nostalgia of having a hard copy in hand is best! That is all!

e-books are better than ordinary paper books. more quality

I rarely buy paper books these days. I think paper book is slowly becoming obsolete. I have preference for soft copies because a single device can accommodate all the books I need, thereby taking away the problem of having too much paper load around me.

Ebooks! But the texture of physical book is required to get the good feeling perhaps both, i Mean having a physical copy and ebook

e-books are more suitable for filling in important notes, as they are easier to maintain than regular paper books.

e-books are better to fill important notes, whereas ordinary paper books are widely used for students.

e-books are more awake than ordinary books.

E-books are the way of the future, but you can't beat kicking back with a paperback novel in bed to read.

When the world is turned to chaos and there is nothing to power electronics. I'll be glad to have paper books of any kind.

I prefer paper books because i don't really get the feeling of books untill it is written on paper.

E-books is much better than paper books. Because e-books can be back up in a place like Dropbox , one drive and so on while paper books can only be kept in a book store. When a case of fire accident the e-books will be much more be in a safe place than paper books.

i liked the old fashion way to read from paper book.

Paper books feel nice and everything and oh god, the smell when they are new and the smell when they are old is amazing, but e-books are more eco friendly and easier to get so we better start adopting e-books over regular books.

Prefer digital copy

Paper book is really fantastic to read. Paper book has good effect on reader. I like paper book to read.

No E-books are more comfy. You can carry whole library in your phone

I like paper books but it's been so long since I read any book. I always read stuff online but not ebooks. 😅😅😅

It's more about personal tastes. I personally prefer paper books as I can't get focused when I read E-books and my eyes don't get tired. Also it's more romantic,some people (including me) enjoy the smell of a new book, and also you can read them anywhere without the need of electricity or if you live in a third world country without the fear of being robbed. Also you can give them as a gift to that special person :) it's hard to substitute the paper books!

Paper books! My eyes hurt after reading e-books for 5 minutes :(.

I prefer ebooks myself, most of the reading I do is textbooks and being able to quickly search for a word or phrase can save a lot of time.

Id still go for paper books. It may be traditional but I think its still effective, you dont need to charge anything and yet you can read as much as you want.

We can visualise this form two different perspective

  1. Most of the people find paperback better as it gives them a more sense of reading than a kindle ebook.

  2. If you are more of a reader and read lost of books, then from environmental sense, a kindle is better, I too believe that we should stop being selfish and should contribute whatever is in our capability to help the environment.

Disclaimer: These are solely my opinions, and doesn't depict any other person's thoughts or opinion.Thanks

Ebooks are better because we are in an advanced age.

I think an e-book is perfect, you can take it everywhere on the phone and read it anywhere.

Oh the joy of reading a REAL book! Reading with the Kindle just doesn't feel the same but then nowadays I prefer it because it's really space saving and I can carry it wherever I go. Sadly I do think the paper books will vanish sometime in the future as the younger generations are "digital natives" - they don't mind missing the pleasure of holding a paper book in their hands.

Paper books mean paper cuts

Ebooks are more environmentally friendly

Ebooks are cheaper and more convenient to carry around

E Books are better :) you don’t have to carry so much books around, when you want to read in the vacation. But watch out for the battery.

Focus: Ebooks are designed to distract you with links and “helps.” Books are designed for focus.

This is intended as satire. David Ferrer is not old, cynical, technophobic or curmudgeonly. He’s actually a pretty pleasant guy who enjoys many modern conveniences.

Zombie Apocalypse Test: When the zombie apocalypse knocks out the electricity in town and the internet is down, your books will still work just fine. You might even be able to fight off a zombie or two by swinging a sizable Oxford Dictionary.

Book Smell: No one raves about the ebook smell like they do about the “old book smell.”

Feel Your Progress: You can physically feel your progress through a book as the upcoming pages get fewer and fewer. Not so with ebooks.

Gravitas: The physical weight of the book imparts a sense of gravitas.

In reading a book you are dealing with a real thing and not just digital wind, so it feels like something to take more seriously, respect more, and value greater than an ebook.

Marginalia: You can write in the margins of books, but not with ebooks. Ebooks won’t let you write in different sizes at the same time, use cursive, or draw lines from one sentence to a note. Some of them won’t let you write anything at all. I like to write insults and complaints in my margins.

Patience: Ebooks are designed for speed with skimming, scrolling, and linking.

But physical books are designed for slow processing, with larger pages, no links, and concentrated singular lines of thought.

I think that day-to-day paper books are the second option due to the ease of searching for content in electronic books. And I say that they will be in second option because in the moment that we do not have light to light our pcs, and we do not have megaphones or data for our telephones, there is where we will look for the first generation of teaching "The Books on paper"

The effect is slowness and patience instead of frenetic haste.

Bookmarking:Ebooks have “bookmarks” but it’s not the same and it doesn’t work as well as real books. With real books, you can hold multiple places at once and flip back and forth between them in split seconds without losing your original place.

Moreover, since the text never changes locations in a real book, it’s easier to find your place in the book.

Used Books: real books have a used-book market, which means you have access to tons of cheap books. This also leads to endless recycling of old books for new people and new shelves.

Used Book Shops: The iconic used-book shop is an important piece of academic noir that calls all participants to be thoughtful, conversant, and intelligent.

If used book shops are an endangered species, ebooks are like poachers.
