Question Why do a lot of people NOT read paper books?

People read the Internet all the time... they read on their Iphone, TV, etc, but when it comes to opening a paper book, like a novel, a lot of people don't like to. They say it's boring, etc.

I'm just wondering... why?

The only novels (if you can call them that) that I've ever read are the Harry Potter series when I was younger and thought they were the best thing ever. Since then I've not read a single fictional book because they just don't interest me. I prefer factual stuff, hence why I read stuff online.

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.

It's more convenient for a world that's on the go.

It's a lot more convenient, but for me I can't concentrate as well when I'm reading an ebook as opposed to a physical copy. It's not that the screen makes my head hurt, I can just focus more.

I thought you meant paper back books instead of the hard cover lol. I have no idea, but maybe I need to switch. Every book I buy is from the book store, and I'm running out of space to organize them (maybe that's why)

Personally I think its unfortunate, but this digital age is the evolution of the printed word. Newspapers are going out of business left and right in favor of the news web sites, and once the ball gets truly rolling there will be never any chance it will stop. It only makes sense, especially in these tough economic times that people would be more willing to buy a cheaper digital version of something rather than a tangible version that costs more to produce. It sucks, but thats the direction its going from now on. I predict in 20 years printed books/newspapers will have gone the way of records, and thats not even a bold prediction.
