I love reading books. I'm a fast and voracious reader, so I complete most books within a week. What happens to the books I bought then? I never re-read anything. So I'll have to discard them or gift them to save space. And constant buying or renting of books will leave you credit-less. What if the book doesn't turn out to be good? Your money is wasted. If you rented a book by any chance, then you must maintain it properly.
And if you need books written by international authors, there aren't many stores that'd supply you. And people don't usually promote or advertise books like they do the movies.Then, where are you going to get recommendations from?
To get rid of all these problems came e-books. These can be converted into PDFs and can be read through any electronic device. Most e-books can be downloaded for free ( some would call that illegal but it isn't).
If your conscience hurts for downloading the book for free, there are multiple apps that would let you pay for it and enjoy it legally. Don't like it? Delete it. No maintenance, no wastage, no expenditure, extra night vision version and comes with good lighting, so safe for eyes. You can bookmark. It always resumes from the last page you left.
There are so many reasons why e-books are appealing. And I'm on their side.
The stronger a light shines the darker are the shadows around it.
