Will Paper Books Disappear in Future?

Thinking the world is out of paper books: every child and adults, students and teachers, officers and governors etc are all holding an ereader or tablet for reading ebooks. So do you think ebook will become the mainstream and replace traditional printed books? For lovers of papers and ink, this might be a nightmare if they can't find a virtual paper book anywhere.
Kindle Ereader Brings an Ebook Era
Along with the coming of digital publishing era, things have been changed rapidly. Ever since Amazon released the very first Kindle ereader several years ago, many people predicted that the future of publishing industry will be dominated by digital publishers. Things around us like music, images, maps etc are all digitalized with a super fast speed, and digitalization comes later in book publishing. But it has already carved out its way in traditional publishing industry. In fact, Kindle ereader and digital publishing software is getting more and more popular, and it seems that the above prediction is becoming a reality day by day.

Apple and Android Speeds up Digitalization
Now with the popularity of Apple players, Sony readers and smartphone, more and more turn to read ebooks like PDF on these portable devices like iPad, iPhone etc. Comparing with a weighty and large paper book, people think that it is more convenient to view ebooks on these lightweight and multimedia players anywhere and anytime. It is reported that about 80% people prefer to carry around an ebook instead of a printed book.

Will Digital Ebooks Replace Paper Books?
Through ebook is very popular, I don't think it will replace traditional printed books as ebook is not without any faults. Here are some reasons for it:
1. Paper books can be nice collections: Usually, we had little interest to part with an ebook which has already been read. But for paper books, we still want to place them on book shelves as it is a proud thing testifying that how many books you've already read.
2. Be tired of reading ebook in front of PC: After 8 hours work or even longer in front of a computer, many people feel very exhausted and only want to steer away from computer to enjoy some quality life without radiation and electronic devices.
3. Paper book can bring us intimacy: A touchable paper book can give us a sense of intimacy as ebook cannot. Handling a paper book on bed, in fireplace or in garden will be a sweet thing, but things change if we handle an ebook.
4. Paper book appears more flexible in reading life: For ebooks, we have to put it on computer or ereaders, and then open it with the assistance of software. For paper books, we only need to unfold it.
