E-Book or book ?

After last advances in smartphones, tablets and the emergence of e-books, it has created a kind of dispute between the advocates of paper and screen. Let's reflect on characteristics of each and choose which one we prefer. On the one hand, on trips eBooks allow you to bring a whole library with you wherever you go, you can switch between titles with ease and the weight is lighter than a standard paperback. Speaking of space, using an e-Book will save you a lot of storage space and also means you have a backup online if something happens to your books. Furthermore, e-Books are often cheaper in the long run because there are no printing fees associated with them, and when you buy one your reward is instantaneous, you do not have to wait for your reading after ordering. Last, if you read in bed, an eBook may be a good option as they are easy to use and won’t get in the way like the lights attached to actual books do.

On the other hand, if your e-Book breaks, you will have nothing to read until you receive a new one; however, if a book does get damaged to where you can't read it, you can just go to the bookstore and buy another copy, rather than worrying if it is still covered by the warranty. In addition, while most readers have a good battery life, there will still be times when you forget to charge it and then can’t read at all. You’ll never have this problem with a standard book, and also you don’t need to worry about hurting your eyes with a physical book. Finally, let’s face it:  you’re never going to get that comforting smell of paper or the weight of a good book in your hands when you read an eBook. Personally speaking, I really love to smell all my books and the touch of their pages, it is so comfortable. Whether paper or screen, the most important thing is to read ! ( ^_^ )
