Printed Books Still Hold Sway Posted on 20-Nov-2017
Despite digital onslaught they still manage to survive. After a long tiring day at work, nothing makes K. Anuradha, who works in a private organisation, relax than turning the pages of a book for about 45 minutes. No matter what, she spends a while reading books before hitting the bed every night. Even in this digital age where e-books play a key role, ardent readers say that the experience of getting engrossed in the world of paper books filled with inky words is something they could not afford to skip as this traditional regimen forms an integral part of their relaxation techniques to unwind and de-stress. In connection with the National Library Week celebrations, librarians and those who run bookstores say that the demand for printed books have increased over the years despite the growing popularity of e-books. “At a time where a majority of people end up spending most part of their day operating devices, books provide the much-needed respite to those who want digital-detox. Even though e-books are gradually making their presence felt in the market, printed books continue to be the preferred format of reading among diverse age groups,” says Sunil Nevatia, director of Pages bookstore.
