So are paper books a thing of the past as some are warning us? Don’t bet on it!
In a recent survey by PriceGrubber.com, 41 % of readers said they would miss aspects of reading paper books if they switched to reading e-books.
Why, you ask? Here are the top three reasons people still love books with paper pages:
- 36 % would miss the feel of books. (My husband Dan is among them.)
- 13 % would miss their portability. (That’s right. People actually like lugging them around.)
- 13 % would miss underlining and writing notes in the margin. (No, e-notes are not the same!)
How about you? Would you miss paper books? Why or why not?
