BOOKS ARE A MAN’S BEST FRIEND. I believe the same, reading is a way of living your own fantasy land. Reading makes you feel connected to the world, the world of your own choice. You are what you choose to read. But reading not only means novels and books, but now there are a lot of other things too, like blogs etc. Earlier reading was confined to printed books but nowadays E-books have come into existence. Studies show a considerable traffic has been shifted towards E-books. But the question is that, do you like E-books over books? Or do you still love the old books?
Of course, there are some fabulous facts about the old books that these newly developed E-books cannot beat ever. You know how soothing you feel with the aroma of a newly bought book! Holding the book in your hands, caressing through the pages gives you the real feel of reading.
A research carried out in Italy shows that Readers absorb less on Kindles than on paper, people who read on eBooks are pretty bad at remembering the events in the order. A book lover says “Paper books are far superior when it comes to letting you know your place in a book, and that’s why I prefer them.” Yes, that’s also right, that eBooks are handy, cheap, available everywhere but books also have some advantages over them.
A study shows that “Just six minutes of reading is enough to reduce stress by 68%, and numerous studies have shown that reading keeps your brain functioning effectively as you age.” And eBooks? Eye irritation as well as a negative change in behavior is caused, and harming rays.. Oops! Well.. Health benefits! That’s what reading paper books offer you over eBooks. Avid fans of paper books claim that there’s still nothing like the smell of paper and the rustle of the pages as the reader flips gently through the book with their fingers. Indeed true!
Yes eBooks are made as a replacement for paper books but it is a fact that they are replacement only where paper books are not available. A poll shows that 75% of people Prefer Printed Books to eBooks. Big difference! Sure there has to be something in paper books that 75% prefer paper books, otherwise printed books would have been on the edge to extinction.
So,I hope you agree paper books prove to be a heaven for book lovers.
