eBooks or Print Books: The Great Book Format Debate

In today’s world of technology, eBooks have grown to immense popularity. Though, there are still many people who prefer the feel of the books in their hands that print books haven’t gone out of style and may never go out of style. So…which one is winning the fight? 

ROUND ONE:

The average production cost for a $26 hardcover is $4.05.

The average production cost for a $9.99 eBook download is $0.50.

 

ROUND TWO:

A hardcover book can weigh up to 2.2 pounds.

An eBook reader or tablet can weight up to 8.5 ounces.

 

ROUND THREE:

71% of millennials in the UK and the US (those aged 18-34 years old) prefer print books.

37% of millennials prefer eBooks via tablet.

 

AND THE WINNER IS…..

It doesn’t matter what is more popular. Everyone has their preferences and that’s all that matters. If you prefer reading on a tablet, then great! If you prefer reading printed books, great! If you are a hybrid reader (reads anything), then great! AT LEAST YOU ARE READING!!!
