Professor Heather from University of West Chester stated that reading books from tablets equals to reading a powerpoint. (USA TODAY College) However, this is just an opinion of groups of people who are not fond of tablets and iPhone used as textbooks. Students cannot focus on their readings because the letters in the paper books are too small and the sentences are too close together. For dyslexic students for instance, they are comfortable to read books or textbooks from Ipads or tablets. Because this will aid them to read fast, focus, and comprehend fast.
All in all, I prefered the book better. This is because I truly loved Death’s idiosyncratic comments and informative narration in the book. Even though the movie was very literally visual, I had an easier time imagining the book and understanding it. I really enjoyed reading Max’s books and didn’t have this pleasureful opportunity in the movie. I enjoyed the sensory details and Zusak’s writing style.
“Call me Ishmael” is a popular quote from the book Moby Dick. Perhaps read by parents rather than the children of this generation. We all know that reading is important, but why do we neglect it? This is due to the fact that the younger generations are less exposed to reading and books in general. Putting it simply, time is a constraint.
The Time Machine by H.G. Wells and The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde by Robert Louis Stevenson are two well known novels with some rather large vocabularies. Still, the former offers many context clues to help one understand better, and while the latter can accomplish the same it still seems to drag on and become a bit snooze-inducing. From the lack of important female characters to its drab setting, it is clear to tell that Jekyll and Hyde is certainly not the best option. If one visits their local library in hopes of finding a vocabulary enriching novel with excitement to keep them on the edge of their seat, they can look no further than The Time Machine.
Although there are many arguments saying that ebooks are better, evidence points towards printed books being better than ebooks because printed books are more preferred, easier to share, and easier to read. First off, one reason why printed books are better than ebooks is that printed books are more preferred. To start, printed books are more preferred by college students.
Even though I have not read the book fully since summer, looking through it and reviewing I felt the same way. Because of the changing setting, the characters, and the plot, In his steps was not enjoyable to read. To be fair, when you read a book in a short amount of time details will go over your head. On the other hand, when reviewing over a book I believe that you should not have put a lot of effort in just understanding the order of events or the branching plots. I believe the book can do a lot of good but only towards the right audience.
Although English isn’t my first language, I have obviously failed a few times too. I think that’s another reason related to why I’m not into reading or writing. Honestly I really want to get into it though. I want to read a book that leaves me in the edge of my seat. That excitement you get while reading an astonishing book and you just don’t want to let it down.
Furthermore, not only does the writing that I create define me, but also the writing the comes in the form of books. I love to read, and I would be very lost in life without books. Books serve as an escape from reality when I need one, or when I just want to pass time. Sometimes I start a book and realize after so long that I have been reading for hours. It is very unusual for me to not have a book started, but if I do not it is most likely due to prioritizing school work over leisurely reading.
I feel like flipping pages digitally doesn’t give you the same satisfaction and the feel of achievement as a hard copy of a book would. Pointing at what I am reading is always one of my habits, which will not really happen on a Kindle without accidentally highlighting the words or taping into another application. Even though it is more convenient when you are outside especially if you don’t want to carry all the heavy books in your backpack, it is really an advantage when it coming to someone like me, who probably reads a book once a
There are many books with usage of profanity and slurs, and many people have accepted it as okay, but many find it as a disgrace. One argument that book enthusiasts often bring up is that the very books that are being banned and challenged teach great lessons to children and even adults around the world. Children should also learn to face these explicit things at a young age because they need to prepare for those things when they are older is another belief of many people. Many people believe that banning books is unnecessary, while others--especially parents--think the content should be kept unseen by their children. Many parents believe that their children should not be unprotected from explicit content.
