Do You Enjoy Reading In Print, Audio Or Digital. by Obinnau(m): 9:19pm On Dec 10, 2013
Reading in print have been the method i was introduced into, as my main form of studyin and reading. But growing up and facing the ever growing rise of technological advancements, i came to love and cherish reading in digital format. Though it has its disadvantages like when there is no power on your gadgets and you will yearn for that hard copy. There is also the risk of long exposure of the eye to rays from the gadgets. All in all i still prefer reading in digital format.

Digital anytime, anywhere. I do love to read prints when I am sure I have the time.

Print it is for me.

I love digital reading, when I look at the volume of a book in 'print', I got discouraged and might dose off reading it but when I read on my phone, I can read more voluminous write ups with ease and can stay all night reading.

I prefer Print to digital... With print, u are more at ease in your environment. You don't hav to worry abt d heat from your device, or worry abt ur battery getting low. Also u won't need to worry abt "interest clashes", because u would have d choice to control every distraction associated with d digital world.
And most importantly for me is the fact dat, your eyes wouldn't be tired.
And a recent study also shows dat young people prefer print to digital...

Text books/ study materials - prints obviously

Novels - Digital (reason is because of the ease with which you can Google up strange words and other stuffs without having to start searching through a dico- comfortable!)

Audio is too slow; if you increase the speech rate , it becomes incoherent.

For me, certain books are better read in print; for example, academic books meant for your shelf. While, novels, e-books manuals can be read on digital formats. Moreover, audio books are good for instructional, self help, spiritual matter's I suppose.

Print all the way. You don't have to worry about battery consumption.
Re: Do You Enjoy Reading In Print, Audio Or Digital. by Timoa(m): 1:40am On Dec 28, 2013
Print Great!

Digital fanatic for various reasons:

Depending on the size of your device (DEVICE:- I don't mean your tiny screen phone, I mean a tablet, Pc,laptop or Kindle) one can have X amounts of ebooks in various formats e.g PDF if one likes the proverbial print, in ePUB format one can flick through ones screen like a book etc...

Reading magazines on one's Tablet from the magazine's app is truly PHENOMENAL. For instance GQ magazine animates all adverts and most articles giving the reader the pleasure of both reading about something and watching it do as well. Every other magazine application do the same, some put up videos one can watch instead of the normal print photo. Mind you, Digital newspapers do so too! I think that's absolutely brilliant.

Even textbooks are interactive now. One can read a chapter and watch a case study,by the time one is through with that chapter, an average person understands nearly 60% of what one have just read.
I think that's truly amazing! Don't you?

Yeah! There is the down size to digital, low battery which can be solved by charging your device on time.
Complaining about screen brightness and all, tweak it.
Eyesight going bad due to device screen. Elmmm I dunno lipsrsealed genetic perhaps?



Audio books on the other hand requires an acquired taste I find.

This excludes the self help, instructional audio books as we all are used being instructed one way or another.

Listening to an unfamiliar novel for the first time could be extremely daunting that is..if one doesn't have the requires skill.

My first audio book lucky was A Dance with Dragons the fifth book in G.R.R Martins epic fantasy series (known as The Game of Thrones on Video)
Haven read the first 4 books in the series, 3 on print 1 digitally, I enjoyed this audio book immensely the first time round because I was familiar with the characters, theme and plot already.

I tried an unfamiliar novel for my second audio book, struggled through the first three chapters. My resilience paid off from the fourth chapter onwards and the rest was history.

I found that the trick with audio books is learning how to listen well, working on one's own imagination because ones imagination keeps the audio book an interesting listen.

All these being said most times the good old fashion PRINT still rules. I still keep hardcover books (most of which I read electronically) in my library. grin

Hm.

Where technology fails, it's back to the basics.
Otherwise, it's audio AND digital.
