Sorry, Ebooks. These 9 Studies Show Why Print Is Better
Take comfort in these 9 studies that show that print books have a promising future:
Younger people are more likely to believe that there’s useful information that’s only available offline.
Students are more likely to buy physical textbooks.
Students opt for physical copies of humanities books, even when digital versions are available for free.
This isn’t just true of textbooks. Teens prefer print books for personal use, too.
Students don’t connect emotionally with on-screen texts.
… And they comprehend less of the information presented in digital books.
It’s not just students opting for print. Parents and kids prefer to read physical books together, too.
Which makes sense, because ebooks can negatively impact your sleep.
… And it’s hard to avoid multitasking while reading digital books.
