Humanity has been progressing rapidly in technological advances. One of the latest breakthroughs is the replacement of paper books by their electronic counterparts. Whether people will continue reading the former rather than the latter is a controversial issue.
I believe that despite some conveniences that electronic books bring us, printed books will never disappear. First of all, colourful paper books can be a preferable option for educating children, who love to touch paper and even draw on the pages of books expressing their inner worlds. What is more, in many poor countries people do not have access to the Internet with the help of which they can download books.
Nevertheless, more and more people use their mobile phones and e-books for reading an enormous number of novels and stories, appreciating the low weight of their devices in contrast to some heavy hardbacks. They also take into consideration the fact that computers and their analogs can store lots of books in their memory and modern software allows us to find quickly the necessary information.
Despite the aforementioned advantages of electronic books, their paper equivalents are often cheaper and easier to use since they do not need electricity or the internet connection. In all likelihood, this state of affairs will not change in the future because of the presence of remote locations and social stratification.
To sum up, I am convinced that conventional approaches to reading books namely via printed storages will not be replaced by modern ones via electronic books because there will always be people who love to turn real pages or do not have the options that the Internet provides.
