Speaking topic: Some people prefer to read physical books made from paper, while others prefer to read electronic books on a digital device. Which do you prefer and why?
I personally prefer to read real, physical books, not e-books because I just love books – the smell and the sound of the pages turning – and think they are priceless objects – or at least will be someday when technology totally takes over. Books have a distinct smell and the feel of them in your hand is not the same as holding an e-reader of some kind. I also like to be able to write in a book if I want or take notes. I also believe that technology will almost entirely take over and books will no longer be printed. So, I think that having real books is important as they will have a totally unique value when this happens. So, that’s why I prefer to read physical books rather than electronic books on a digital device.
