Are You Team Physical or Digital Books?
By Felicia Chua
Both casual and avid readers bond over the love for books and reading, but one longstanding debate plagues the community – are physical or digital books superior?
Traditionalists would argue that physical books are the irreplaceable OG, appreciating the reassuring weight and the woody, nostalgic whiff of a physical book in their hands. The greatest merit of physical books, in our opinion, is perhaps in the joy of adorning rows of empty bookshelves, a lifelong dream for many book lovers building a cosy library of their own.
On the other hand, tech-savvy digital natives with a penchant for minimalism may find physical books cumbersome. Ditch the bulk and bring your reads on the go in one nifty, lightweight eReader device, they say. With the ability to store an astronomical number of books, what’s not to love!
