Many years ago I came to the point where I just couldn’t expand my conventional personal library any further – there just wasn’t any more room. Thankfully, I live in an age where I no longer need the physical room in order to expand my library and with many thousands of digital books (ebooks) currently in my possession that is a good thing – just how would I have been able to accumulate that many physical books?
The link below is to an article that makes the case for keeping a conventional personal library and though I would love to have my library in such a form, for me it just isn’t possible.
The following link is to an article suggesting that reading a physical book (traditional book) will aid the memory more than an ebook. I think memorising something is a little more sophisticated than that, but then again I am an ebook fan.
