Books or e-books? First of all, I don’t think this is a zero-sum game – that is to say, there’s definitely room for both real books and e-books in the world. Although I definitely read way, way more real books (I have yet to pay for an e-book; I’ve only read free ones. If I’m going to pay for it, I want to be able to HOLD it), there’s definitely a place for e-books.
What do you think are better places for e-books and better places for real books? For example, one may be better for traveling and the other better for lending. One may be better for reading embarrassing books (a la 50 Shades); one may be better for reading to a kid at bedtime (picture books!). One may be easier to sign than the other… Anyhow, check out the infographic below and feel free to weigh in!
P.S. My favorite part might be the reminder that “Walking to the library is still the most ecofriendly way to read.”
