Re: Why do a lot of people NOT read paper books?
I guess a lot of people relate reading books to their time in school. Reading is a hassle for many, probably most, kids and its just a thing they get used to. Having said that, I know people who wouldn't crack a book in school who read novels constantly. It just depends on if they find something to read that matches their interests.
I used to read a lot as a kid. Have tons of paperback novels from my teenage years. Prefer e-books a lot now. A lot more convenient. I only buy books which I consider to be my favorites.
