The Allure of the Print Book by Nick Bilton

When asked which media teens preferred in physical form, over 60 percent of girls and boys aged 16 to 24-years-old, illustrated with the grey bar, said physical books. The pink bars show girls interviewed for the survey; the blue bar, boys surveyed.

 

  • I didn’t want to start reading print books again, but I honestly had no choice. My dog, Pixel, forced me to. You see Pixel, a 35-pound clump of energy, has an obsession with shadows and reflections. At the beach or the dog park, she doesn’t chase birds or tennis balls, she chases their shadows trailing along the ground. And at home, when I pull out my iPad to read an e-book, she starts twirling frantically in circles, jumping all over me trying to catch the reflection from the screen. It’s comical most of the time, but it’s unbelievably annoying when I’m trying to fall into a good story. So a couple of months ago, I decided to try a print book instead. Pixel, thankfully, wasn’t impressed with the reflective qualities of paper. But to my surprise, I found that I was.
