Post by spearss91 » Tue Oct 23, 2012 12:37 am

Hello Friends,


Now in these days, everyone like to use electronic Books ...Everyone think that E-Books is better than printed Books ....

Depends on the material and your purpose.

E-books are fine for fiction, novels, etc...

I think they are terrible for technical books and teaching. However... once you are familar with a particular technical book or reference and you no longer need to study it, but rather use it as a true reference manual to look things up once in a while, than an e-book is fine.

They both have advantages. But,in my own opinion I'd rather flip pages on my own hands. :)

Pah! You never had a Kindle (or now a Kindle Paperwhite).

The only problem I have now that I switched to e-books is the fact that I cannot read when the plane is taking off or landing. At Heathrow (and some others) it can be 30 - 60 minutes from when they make you shut down until airborne.
Good luck!

True. They ask you to turn off your book. All you can do is close the leather cover because you can't technically turn it off :)

For technical & esoteric needs, I read them on a laptop (I'm not a tablet guy). Otherwise, it is books.

While on reading, a great piece worth reading against reading.

For once me and Grumps are in agreement. Kindles are great. Especially those with internet connectivity.

For once? I'll remember that one, Rich ... :evil:

And yes, Kindle 3G for example. Nothing beats lying in bed and buying a book without getting up ...

Grumpy and Grandpa are upset, and poor Vic must pay for it? No dude, age made it, not me.

And for once, I agree with both: I just bought a Sony eReader and I like it... lightweight, easy to move my library with it (and I'm addicted to moves, it seems), and I can download thousand books free of royalties through project gutemberg and these kind of sites.

But I must admit the feel of the paper is missed here... and the scent of old paper at my study will be missed too (although I will save from the bury all my loved paper books, if able).

You wouldn't have to search for that fucking stick all the time, if you could for a minute remember where you left your glasses! :twisted:
