EBooks or Paper Books?

How do we ensure that in 10 year we will only have EBooks?

What advantages and disadvantages do the both have?

EBooks

Advantages: EBooks can be very light an easy to manage. For example when you are reading more than one book, you don't want to have to carry them all around with you, that'd get heavy. But with EBooks you can have them all with you for less than half the weight. You can also carry the same book on more than one device, and it still keeps track of your bookmark.

Disadvantages: EBooks are said to make reading easier, not having to lug all the paper weight around, but is it only good things with EBooks? Sources say EBooks are more just as expensive to make as paper books and can be even more expensive. Although it is easier to click a button to flip a page, it is harder to find certain parts of the book on technology.

Paper Books:

Advantages: Although paper books can sometimes be a hassle, there are many good things about them. Most readers just tend to have a soft spot for paper books, and that alone is a reason to prefer them, but there is more to it than that. With paper books it is easier to see how many pages you have left. Also, if you are reading for academic purposes there may be a translator or map in the books, which paper books make easier to flip back and forth.

Disadvantages: The disadvantages to a paper books seem to be pretty obvious. People consider 'too heavy', or 'uncomfortable to hold', but most problems with paper books seem to be based off of personal preference.

Do people approve of only having EBooks?

Although many people read both types of books, and don't really mind either, there are still many who are out to turn it all into technology.

What can I do about it?

My solution to the problem of books all being transferred into digital copies can be solved by surveying people around the world to see which they prefer. I could also get in touch with local authors and inform them of the extent to which books people prefer to read.


Step One: Create an online survey to find out about peoples book choices, and advertise so people will answer it.

Step Two: Record results on a graph, and write about the results.

Step Three: Find a local author who may be interested in the issue.

Step Four: Send him the information, to let him know how people feel about books. How are they supposed to know how people feel with out informing them
