You may already be aware that reading provides a whole slew of benefits that can improve your health and overall quality of life. But did you know that reading traditional books instead of e-books can impact your life in some amazing ways as well?
Recent research shows that people who read books on electronic devices are less likely to recall vital information, such as plots and characters than people who read traditional books. There is much speculation as to why this occurs. But it may be because reading on an electronic device makes it easier to skip vital parts of your books without you even being aware of it.
People that read traditional books are far less likely to experience physical stress and discomfort that takes away from the complete experience. The use of electronic readers can be disruptive to your sleep cycle, attention span and can lead to depression and fatigue.
Traditional Books Are Cheaper
When you look at the price of e-books and compare it with the cost of traditional books, nothing can really prepare you for the sticker shock. Most e-books cost just as much as new traditional books and no one really understands why. There’s nothing physical to own and or any print and overhead expenses to account for, but yet e-books are expensive. Traditional books may cost the same when their brand new, but you can always find a secondhand or used copy in your local Tennessee bookstore for a small fraction of the cost. Just think about how good you feel when you purchase your books used and can get a great deal in the process. You won’t have the same experience with e-books at any time soon.
