Do you read ebooks, or avoid reading them?
Does it seem to you awkward and inconvenient to read ebooks on the screen?
Well, this depends on what ebook you are reading. If you read a novel, this would be inconvenient, because you would probably like to read it on the bus, sitting in a park, or lying in bed. In these situations, you would prefer a book, which you can carry with you. Actually, nowadays, you can read a novel on an electronic reading device, such as Ipad or Kindle, which can carry with you.
With textbooks and guides this is different. You don’t read them for hours. You read for a few minutes, and then you have to think about what you have read, and most importantly, practice it. Ebooks on meditation, concentration, self-discipline, or on self-improvement, are not read like a novel, but just few pages at a time.
You would probably avoid reading a novel of 300 pages on the screen of your computer, but you can definitely do so with textbooks, no matter how many pages they contain.
