We all knew this post was coming, now didn't we?
I downloaded a super cool app called Phonto so I'm going to make thumbnails like this a lot more often..
I've always been a book nerd. I was introduced to books practically from birth, where my parents would read to me even before I could string together a single sentence. Once I had the ability to read, I'd always be found with a book in my hand. I was surrounded by the magic of reading, and still am to this very day, as I own hundreds upon hundreds of books, and am a constant library-goer. So, for me, the whole Ebook Vs Print Book debate is something that I find really interesting.
Personally, I prefer print books, mainly because of how portable they are. I also love that classic book smell of which they all hold. So Kindles and electronic reading devices confuse me. It's like being given the option to have icecream or a bowl of sprouts, yet choosing sprouts because they're apparently easier to get the hang of - I could cope with the sprouts, but I'd been severely lusting over the icecream. You know what I mean?
Even so, for the purpose of this post I am going to try to be as unbiased as possible, although I can't make any promises.
Okay, so with my new app Phonto I've created two lists of pros of both print books and ebooks specially for this here post, despite the fact that I found it hard to find positive points for the former..
Research shows that 53% of readers prefer ebooks, with print books falling short at 47% - despite the obvious fact that print books rule. I'm pretty dumbfounded by this, especially with the pros listed above.
What are your opinions on this?
And yes, this post is a day early instead of late for once!
