Technology has opened up many fora to interact with written words. To such an extent that the print media, physical books’  existence feel threatened for the sake of ease as with the example cited above.  But the things are not exactly same with the books-e-books as with stairs-elevator case. The feel of book and reading through a physical book  and even the smell of book has no match for its digital sibling – E books.

Arvind Passey ‏@arvindpassey (tweet friend says…)   You can carry an entire library in your Kindle… and end up reading not a single book! That’s the truth of digital books of today!

 

There will be a ever ending debate on the space , availability and cost perspective and in most cases the the digital sibling may win over its physical brother but in the end  (for me at least) its the book in hand that matters the most…
