E-books are becoming more and more popular lately. And this fashion has captured not only adults but also children, for whom parents buy comfortable gadgets.
- A screen that does not tire your eyes
Readers use electronic ink screens. They work in reflected light (that is, they do not require lighting) and look more like a gray plastic panel with letters printed over it.
- The ability to have hundreds of books on hand
With the reader, the question never arises which of the books to take with you today. You can take everything! And it does not need a few suitcases with a porter. Your library is always at hand and always weighs about two hundred grams.
- Search and notes
One of the main advantages of electronic books stems from the lack of paper - the lack of a full search. Even the most detailed content with an alphabetical index, alas, does not solve this problem.
- Gray illustrations
Color screens on electronic ink have not yet come out of the laboratories, so reader users have to be content with gray illustrations (8-16 colors) for books, regardless of what they were in the original.
- Not instant flipping
Updating the screen of the reader (that is, “page flipping”) usually takes a second or a bit less for an average reader. In any case, this is not instantaneous, which can potentially annoy. At least, such irritable people sometimes meet.
- There is no feeling of the book.
Alas, from the reader does not achieve the same feelings as the paper book. There are no rustling pages, the smell of printing ink, thick binding. There is only a screen, a case a few buttons. Fans will always have with them something that will certainly come out of the printing, electronic readers are unlikely to be liked.
