Books: Electronic vs Real

Photo by jamjar

I read. A lot. And I have gotten to the point where almost everything I read is electronic.

This has some advantages: it’s more portable, I can change the font size to be whatever my eyes need at the moment, I can access millions of books at the touch of a button.

Yet with paper there is the tactile experience, the delay between readings that make me think and savor the book, and the assurance that the book I am reading has been through a proper editing process.

Electronic carries the day, most of the time. Yet I enjoy the time I spend with paper, so I don’t see it going away any time soon.
