DIgital vs. Print
After reading about why books should be digital and why they should be kept in print, i have concluded that i would much rather stay with the comfort of a printed book. Even though, people spend a lot of money on books and our new world is heading towards more technology and less paper, people should appreciate what we have left of it. We are losing one of man's earliest form of art, books. Being able to hold them and write in them and read them it's all a part of what makes them so special. Yes, you can easily buy a book on your Ipad and read it, but it doesn't give you the same feelings and emotions as does holding a book and turning the page with each eager motion. I definitely don't think we should lose all books to being transformed into digital devices where your eyes get tired from staring at a blaring white screen for several hours, where annotating becomes a challenge, and where the sense of holding a good book with character is lost.
