With Kindles, Nooks, iPads, and the many Android tablets that offer digital book reading, one would think physical books would die. This may be true in the long run but, for now, real books are safe. Whenever I read a book, I want to hold the book, feel the pages, and turn the pages myself. The smell of the paper can also be nice sometimes.
For a lot of people, the nostalgia of reading a physical book just isn’t there, or they prefer the convenience of a digital book. The fact is, books are still very much alive. However, books being relevant doesn’t mean that digital books aren’t, because they are.
