“Life is the sum of all your choices.” ~ Albert Camus
Book-lovers often get disturbed when they hear the word e-books. All they can envision is the disappearance of books in print. I can not see this happening in my lifetime.
Many people love digital readers. They are another instrument of delivering media – electronically. Our choices for receiving news and entertainment has been expanded to film, music, radio, television, newpapers, magazines, audio books, books in print and e-books. As each form of media has arrived on the scene, it has not negated the need for the other. It has only provided new choices.
For instance, movies became available on-demand on televisions, and DVD rentals stores opened up. Netflix demonstrated movies could efficiently be distributed through the mail. Now a full range of movies are at our dispose by downloading them onto personal computers and digital devices. It did not stop scores of people from going to the cinema each and every year! There is no substitute for the sights and sounds of the BIG SCREEN! Let’s be frank – visual effects are not nearly as stunning when viewed on a computer screen as when they are projected onto the big silver screen, where they are ideally meant to be.
People ask me whether I have a Kindle, a Sony or a Nook digital reader? I have a downloaded Kindle on my computer. I spend every working hour reading and writing on a computer. At the end of the day I am not done reading but I want to switch gears. I like reading the news and books for pleasure on paper.
I want to clutch the book in my hands, smell the slight scent of ink or the hand cream left on the pages from where I left off. I want to turn real paper pages. I don’t want to touch one more digital device. It is as basic as that! In my opinion, there is not a fulfilling substitute for having a real book in hand.
If I asked you “What is your favorite way of having media delivered to you?” The reply would probably be “sometimes I like to listen to music, sometimes I like to read the paper, sometimes I go to my computer…..It all depends on my mood.”
