The digital age makes it pretty difficult to get away from screens. We stare at them for work, for socializing, and for play. It seems like modern life is mostly about moving from one screen to the next, but we believe it’s wise to give yourself a break when enjoying a book. Would you like to learn more about why you should choose print books over e-books? Let’s get started.
A physical copy brings a lot to the table.
There’s simply nothing like holding a printed book in your hands. The weight of the binding, the softness of the paper, and the smell of the ink all hold a special place in the hearts of millions of people. This is not something that a digital book can recreate. Not only that, but you just can’t stack up all of the digital books you have read or are going to read. For those of us who like to visually track our progress, this can be a real issue. However, the argument against e-books goes deeper.
Sharing books is becoming a thing of the past with e-books.
There’s nothing more satisfying than finishing an amazing book. A great novel will make you want to call your best friend and beg them to read it. If you don’t have a physical copy, then you’re not going to be able to lend it to them. They won’t be able to see the pages you made notes on or highlighted. Print books bring people together intellectually and emotionally in a way that digital books cannot.
Sleep better with print books.
The light that screens emit when you curl up with an e-book is scientifically proven to keep you awake. Even when you put the screen down and stop reading, you still might have a hard time sleeping. It sort of takes the joy out of curling up with a book before bed, huh? Yeah, we think so too.
