There is a lot of difference between printed books and E-books. But before we understand the difference between printed book and E-book, let us know what E-book is. Electronic book is a book which is a book which is digital in nature and can be read on PC and some mobiles as well.
Now, let us try to know the difference between E-book and printed book. The first difference is when people read a printed book; it may strain their eyes a lot. Therefore people, who have some eye-related problem, will not find it comfortable to read a printed book. On the other hand, in such a case, a person can use text-to-speech software, in order to read an E-book. Also, the websites offering E-books can eaisly know how many visitors have read or downloaded their E-books using online survey software, and what not!
At times, when the demand of the book increases, a printed book gets out of print and in such a case, publishers may lose on business due to limited supply. On the other hand, availability of E-book is always there and it can be downloaded anytime and anywhere. Therefore, you can acquire a copy of the E-book whenever you need it.
But printed book is still preferred by some people because it has its own advantages. For instance, to be able to read an E-book, you need to have the required format and software in your computer and this may delay the process of reading and people may not always take the pains of downloading the required software to read an E-book. Reading printed books has no such complications and all you need is to grab a copy of the book and read it. Isn’t it simple?
Both the forms of the books have their own advantages and disadvantages. The debate as to which one is better than the other seems to be never-ending! But still, keep debating and keep reading!
