4. Educative 

It has been revealed in a study that people who use e-readers tend to be less efficient in recalling the events and plots mentioned in the books. This problem is not much severe in the people who read print books. This is because full of disturbances in digitalized texts like links and ability to check social media reduces the focus of the readers. Taking “breaks” too often may not help in retaining the information. Thus, e-book readers are likely to suffer from recalling the plots of the book.

5. Beautiful Memory 

Print books serve as a beautiful memory when you get it from your dear ones. Their signature on print books makes you travel back to those memories. You can preserve the book safely.

In fact, it is a process of inviting a great book into your life. Aroma emanated from a book is so special and nothing can match its magical smell.
