Digital or Old School Reading?

Published on 30 October 13
Reading books is one pastime that can be very relaxing and stimulating at the same time. It is often encouraged that children learn this habit at a young age as this will help them in building up their vocabulary and spelling skills as well as encourage them with their creativity in imagining what is happening in their minds. That is why bookstores and bookshops remain in businesses even with the introduction of ebooks and digital files. The debate of whether these new forms of reading materials will be able to render actual books to be obsolete remains.

So what do you prefer?

Will you go for the traditional paperback or go for the technically advanced ebook reader? It really depends. The relationship with the reading material exists on a personal level. There are those who prefer to actually feel the paper while turning the pages and some love the convenience of the digital versions.

One advantage of ebooks is its portability. Imagine, you can bring with you a whole library of reading books with just one gadget. The convenience is really there. A lightweight gadget that you can place in your bag and bring it with you wherever you go and read your favorite book at your own convenience is truly priceless for someone who loves to read books. The files can be transferred through a Thunderbolt cable that is connected from the source. The only drawback is that your gadget should have enough power because if not, you can use 4-port iPad charging station stand to have it charged while you do other things.

However, for those who prefer the traditional way of doing things, they would not mind bringing along a book or two to read while passing away time. The beauty if it is that you would not have to worry about bringing along an extra or backup power supply in case the unit runs out of power. There is also no need to purchase an extra set of Thunderbolt cable to be able to get hold of the book.

Although one advantage of an ebook reader is that there are models that already have access to the Internet. This is one feature that convinces people to purchase an ebook reader for them. Aside from being an ebook reader, it can also be a gadget that will help them connect to the Internet when they need to purchase a book. This eliminates the need for a Thunderbolt cable to transfer files as the book files are directly downloaded into the unit.

So whether to go for an ebook reader or the traditional paperback when purchasing a book really depends on personal preferences. You can discern on how do you really want the item and would it be sufficient to address your needs.
