I had a very interesting discussion with a colleague of mine about the difference between experiencing a real book versus reading one on Kindle. Now, he is a late adopter. He bought his Kindle before it went out of stock. But he brought up a very interesting point. He told me that he uses Kindle for technical books but for novels he prefers to read the real thing. Now, I am not going into the details behind his reasoning but there is a good argument to be made here. A lot of people still connect better with a real book than an eBook. If you ask these folks, they talk about how they have more fun reading a paper book than a Kindle book.
I don’t necessarily agree with the above argument but here is my question for you. IfÂ there was only one book that you wanted read, would you rather read it on a Kindle or would you prefer the real thing?
