The e-book cannot be presented to the checking organization. Ie at your workplace there should be a reference book such and such, a reference manual such and such. And do not care that you have never opened them and they have been downloaded for a long time. They should be.
It seems to me that there is still a difference in perception between reading a paper book and an electronic one. It is difficult to explain what it is, and it is difficult to feel it. But I have that feeling.
I think it can be compared to the effect that occurs when we drink wine from a mug or bottle and from a glass. The form still slightly influences the content.
(but if anything, I don’t remember the last time I read a paper book. A couple of years ago, no less)
Unfortunately, paper books are much easier to work with when you work a lot with texts - that is, when you need to return to the same text many times and navigate well in it, and there are many such texts at the same time. I suspect this is due to the fact that the material medium allows unconsciously to form more associations with the structure of the material than the same rows of letters crawling across the screen.
From the beginning of my studies in the humanities, I first learned to operate with electronic materials (before that I didn't take them so well), but now I understand that paper is still easier, and I think with horror that a professional library will still have to be formed, and then - brrr - to carry it along.
Probably, this is not the case for all people, but the majority with whom I talked, and who reads exactly a lot of all sorts of complicated, complicated philosophical and humanitarian texts, coincides with my feelings.
The paper book does not need to be loaded,
It's not so scary to lose a paper one or give it to someone else to read,
If I drop a paper book, it will be nothing. If I drop the e-book, then with a certain degree of probability, I will have to buy a new e-book,
- You can make notes in the margins or underline some points,
Of course there are, paper books are material and therefore will always be appreciated as an excellent gift. Provided, of course, if you donate a well-designed, collectible book with excellent typography. Such a gift can be a decoration for any office or library.
There are several objective: - it does not depend on the charge, does not sit down at the wrong moment - it does not glitch, does not distort text and graphics (if the format and screen size does not match)
But the thing is that there are also subjective reasons that each person has their own and they can be much more significant than any objective ones.
