Why Young People’s Preference for Electronic Books Is a Myth?
If you are 16 to 24 years old, you belong to the generation which is called super-connected. Such people love selfies, cannot live without their smartphones and Internet connection, so when comes the fact that 62% of them prefer print books over electronic ones, it is a real surprise.
One of the main reasons of such priority is the emotional connection to real books, ability to hold, smell and touch it and value for money: only 8% of readers agree with the price on eBooks.
Now sales of printed books are rising and ebooks, on the contrary, are slowing. Old fashioned books have too many advantages and young people understand that. There is always time to put aside your smartphone and enjoy a new book, right?
