Once upon a time, people stored information on papyrus, clay tablets and other similar information carriers. Time did not stand still, people invented paper, and along with it books, newspapers, and magazines began to appear. Today, with the development of technology, more progressive information carriers have come out. Electronic books are very widespread. Why are they so popular?
For the price of the average book in a store, hundreds of electronic analogues can be purchased on the Internet. Also, for storing ordinary books, provided that you like to read a lot, a large amount of space is required. On one computer, you can replace an entire library of e-books. This is a very big benefit, isn`t it?
Previously, to find out any small question, a person purchased a whole book in paper form. Remember how much outdated and unnecessary literature was gathering dust in the closets. It was a pity to throw them away, and they take up a lot of space. Also there is no point in paying that kind of money for them. This cannot be said about e-books, if something is outdated, then you can simply delete it with one click of a button and the price is appropriate, it’s not a pity.
And try to find some necessary passage in a thick paper volume. You will get tired. In a computer, you simply enter keywords or phrases into the search and here are the places you need in front of your eyes.
As for magazines and newspapers, you had to wait for the time of their release to go buy at the nearest kiosks. This is not necessary now. Any serious publications have their own sites on the network and post new releases on their pages. And this happens before the press gets into print. And thanks to this, you can be one of the first to download the release and save it to your PC or laptop.
There are also disadvantages to e-books. They may not be read everywhere. You can print a couple of pages on a printer and take it with you, purchase gadgets specifically for e-books.
In general, electronic editions are much easier and more convenient to use. And translation of books, encyclopedias, educational publications, reference books and magazines is welcomed.
I wish you an interesting and convenient reading!
