Some people think that printed books are no longer needed in a digital era as all writing can be stored electronically. Others think that printed books will still play an important role. Discuss both these views and give your own opinion.
Currently, digital devices have become an integral element in our daily life, with unfettered access to disparate types, ranging from advanced laptops to smartphones, and they are enjoying enormous and enduring popularity, among which electronic books are playing one of the leading roles. However, it is argued that traditional books still serve as a pivotal aspect. From my perspective, e-books can by no means act as a substitute for traditional ones.
Admittedly, the reading efficiency has definitely been augmented with the emergence of digital books, given the undisputed fact that vast number of pages could be stored in a tiny device like a kindle or an I-pad，making the reading possible any time and anywhere. On the contrary，traditional books, most of them bulky and clumsy, are not as portable as digital ones, thus inevitably failing to provide convenience to some readers. For example, one can scan whatever e-books he or she desires to read just with simple clicks on the kindle without the requirement to purchase them.
However, traditional books always demonstrate precious educational value, especially for adolescents. As is widely accepted, some qualities are essential when reading paper books, such as patience and engagement, all of which cannot be demanded in the process of reading digital books and meanwhile are permanently beneficial to each juvenile. In other words, the youth is prone to develop a steady personality by reading adequate traditional books.
To sum up, paper books enhance our level of engagement. Therefore, it could be quite unreasonable, or even catastrophic if one day traditional books are wiped out by digital books, despite the trend that the ability to read closely and carefully is tentatively disrupted by burgeoning scanning and sorting through e-books.
