Printed Book or E-book?
As the computer and Internet technology head its way into everyone's daily life, the printed world gradually loses its dominance. You can see more people staring at Internet terminals than flipping through printed books.
Unlike printed books, you can download what you want to read in just a few minutes and start reading e-books without leaving your room. Besides, e-books take up less space. You can store hundreds and thousands of them in your computer. With modern technology, e-books can be read anywhere at any time, such as on the bus, train, airplane or while waiting in line. Last but not least, e-books are eco-friendly by not consuming paper, ink, etc.
However, in my point of view in no way does it signal the end of printed books. Actually, not all books are available in e-book form. And the high cost of an e-book reader prevents much of the world's population from using e-books. Moreover, the rapidly changing technologies put old devices out of use, which lead to more waste and pollution. Therefore, printed books will still occupy a certain market share.
