Humor: Book vs Ebook (3 videos)

This popped up in my Twitter feed this morning. A college student is starting his own publishing imprint as a senior project, and he made a series of video ads.He psoted the first one today.

The videos are a biased against ebooks, but then again they are ads so don't get too upset.

Nate Hoffelder is the founder and editor of The Digital Reader: "I've been into reading ebooks since forever, but I only got my first ereader in July 2007. Everything quickly spiraled out of control from there. Before I started this blog in January 2010 I covered ebooks, ebook readers, and digital publishing for about 2 years as a part of MobileRead Forums. It's a great community, and being a member is a joy. But I thought I could make something out of how I covered the news for MobileRead, so I started this blog."

  1. I have to say I hear this as a laugh at people’s reasons for keeping paper books. Nothing about the paper books is about reading.

    I had a good chuckle, and hope he enjoys the way he’s rearranged his person titanic deckchairs.

    Thanks, enjoyed this

    The real true is that we will ended up having both editions, printed, digital flat book and digital enhanced book.

    It is more relaxing a printed book, but not efficient.

    We will choose different moments to read different editions, digital when on the train, and printed at bed time.

    Just like phones having a conversation on the phone doesn’t substitute meeting up with your friends.

    Technology just gives us more options!!!
