e-book readers still hold the printed book as sacred

E-books are becoming very popular,  and you may well expect that e-books are quickly adding nails in the coffins of the printed book and maybe killing our local library, especially with sales of e-readers like Nook and Kindle growing rapidly. But according to a report, even avid e-book readers still hold the printed book as sacred and still revert to buying the printed variety as much as ever. The report goes on to mention that 88% of those that read e-books also read printed books.

Compared to other book readers, they read more frequently , more likely to have bought their most recent book, arising from their search online as regards reading for pleasure, research, work or study. Interestingly, there were not major differences between tablet owners and non-owners when it came to the volume of books they say they had read in the previous 12 months.

  1. Awesome issues here. I am very satisfied to peer your article. Thank you so much and I’m looking forward to touch you. Will you kindly drop me a e-mail?

  2. Translation; I find it absurd to be used in place of traditional ones. It seems like it should be digitized only back-up.
    Reply; Thank you! :)

  3. Translation; It does not seem correct a sacred books digitization spiritually. Spirit CD online? Never. Transposition is so cool, modern and wrong. I find it interesting just to a digitization there is a back-up for those written in case something happens to them, but not replace traditional ones in use.
    Reply; e-books can never replace the published book :)

  4. Mi se pare aberant sa fie folosite in loc de cele traditionale. Mi se pare ca ar trebui sa fie digitizate doar pentru back-up.

  5. Nu mi se pare corecta o digitizare a cartilor sacre din punct de vedere spiritual. Spirit pe CD, online? Niciodata. Este o transpunere atat de rece, moderna si nepotrivita. Mi se pare interesanta o digitizare doar pentru a exista un back-up pentru cele scrise, in caz ca se intampla ceva cu ele, dar sa nu le inlocuiasca in uz pe cele traditionale.

  6. Wow! Thank you! I permanently needed to write on my blog
    something like that. Can I implement a part of your
    post to my site?
