I'm not sure it's better than reading a book on the Kindle app on my iPad Pro, though. Different, but both are nice. And the paper book experience has no analog to switching to a different book in your library when you're reading but not at home. Or to carrying your library with you wherever you go. There are other important things e. LegitShady 1 day ago. You ever hear of mowing a lawn before cars? Your car ever come when you whistle because it likes apples? I'm putting all my money in horses.
What I find missing with ebooks is a sense of 3D space. With a paper book, my brain seems to tag my memories of sections and scenes with how far into the book they were and where they were on the page. If I need to refer back to some earlier section when reading, that tagging lets me find it quickly. With an ebook I don't get that page tagging, and also depending on the format and the reader might not get position on the page tagging.
For some ebooks, the ability to search by words is enough to make up for this, but for a lot of books I can find a given previously read section much faster and easier with the paper edition. If it is a book where I am likely to have to go back frequently, I'll probably get the paper edition. Perhaps someday they will be able to make a thin enough display that someone can make an ebook reader that has a hundred of so screens bound together like the pages of a book. That would be awesome.

I didn't think the idea that books would die to be all that widely help of an opinion. So it's a pretty easy argument to agree with. Adapt to new reading habits mediated by technology? Incorporate features made possible in the digital realm?
That too. I think it was in the mid-to-late 90s as the internet was just becoming more available to lower income groups. Back then I convinced myself of my side for the sake of my debate performance, but I'm pretty sure today that books are going nowhere in a hurry. This is true. When eBooks started becoming big, my wife threw out all of her books figuring that electronic was the future. She really regrets doing that. I moved country and had to make decisions about which of our books were valuable. That meant that we gave away probably half of the books.
You can always buy or download them again in the future. I don't. Unless you see a value of collecting them, having a copy of a copy of a copy of a copy of a book means nothing if you can access that content next time in any format. The only argument to that is that you like to collect that particular edition because of the artwork, paper, etc.
A Ship Made Of Paper: A Novel
Outside that, there I cannot find any other logical argument. She threw out books? Do you mean literally in the trash or sold them to a book store? Basically, it is clear that the concept of books will be difficult to eradicate.
I find it hard to believe that we lose this great cultural format; the compilation of writings with a particular objective. Reports will continue to exist, but books, as a format, they will dissapear on paper format but they will continue on digital. Because of this, it is probably that some things will change. I have an startup right now about resuming books on audio. It's becoming increibly popular among the new generations: they don't want to read an entire book, they want the best highlights of it. Maybe in the future we will face a change in the format we write books: ultra resumed, different grammar, different format.
