In this day and age, people like to have things at a touch of a button. Such as music, news, advice, clothes, gadgets, and even books. And whereas most people like the idea of having all of their books at the convenience of their smartphone, tablet or computer, I’m a little more old fashioned in the sense that I just like the way a book feels and smells in my hand. Coming from having numerous of my textbooks on my iPad and computer, I honestly just like being able to hold the book, flip the pages, highlight words and write little notes in my scribbly handwriting. I even go as far as to have them on both, and it seems like I always go with the traditional copy. It’s nice in theory being able to carry just an iPad to the library to study, but I feel smarter when I’m pulling my books out and they are stacked up in front of me. Also, I like having traditional copies of books so I know I can’t just click out of the book and go to Pinterest, or Instagram or Twitter. I am more focused and can get more studying done without the access of internet from my computer or iPad. Plus, buying tradition copies of books means I’m still allowing someone to have a job with the publishing company. When the online/digital book world takes over and nobody needs hard or paperback copies, that means another person is trying to find a new job. Keep the tradition going!
