I’ve been using printed books for quite a while and I loved them until I discovered the joys of digital books. Without sounding too ad-ish, it occurred to me as I was reading a digital book how slim-lined they
are for the purposes of reading. I don’t have to flick through a printed book and try to humbly ignore those annoying little moments when turning a page feels sort-of uncomfortable because of the tight binding of the spine.
The pages are slimmer than a books and easier to go from page to page, just press the arrow key.
I can even imagine myself reading digital books with illustrations and photos instead of buying coffee table books. And they are cheaper and all one has to do is sit comfortably behind a laptop without being troubled by the fear you’ll spill your drink on the book by having a book in one hand and a mug in the other. Just ever so slightly push the mug away from the keyboard!
