General  reflection

I like printed books, more than that I love them. Nevertheless, I stopped buying the books short of few exceptions many years ago and the primary reason was the books need too much place in your dwelling.

Electronic books (e-books) are much better from this point of view. First of all, e-books do not demand practically any place in your dwelling. It is incomparably easier to find room for them. Second, e-books are much cheaper than printed ones. Third, they are eco-friendly, above all else because they do not need paper and other substances, which is extremely important at present time. And finally e-books are out of competition when traveling as you can take with yourself your whole library with your favourite books and publications.

But for a relatively long time reading e-books has not given the feeling of comfort. Nowadays e-books together with e- book readers have fundamentally changed the situation with it. Reading e-books has become comfortable and enjoyable. 

However, several buts have still remained. If you are not used to reading from a computer screen, you get unpleasant feeling that something is wrong, when starting to read using an e-book readers. Fortunately, almost all people get easily used to overcoming that. Nevertheless, your eyes could be too sensitive to the screen flicker and you may be very tired in a short time. So, that’s why you need implicitly to have an e-book reader of a high quality, which takes into consideration mentioned troubles.
