> “Nevermind its easier to flip through a real book to find something fast than swipe-swipe-swipe.”<
Who searches by swiping? Enter a search term and search a thousand pages in a second. I’ve been a lover of books (the physical objects) all my life, but in recent years have totally gone over to ebooks. Virtually all the classics (and many non-classics) are available in electronic form for free.
Though not as good for books that have large diagrams, for reading most kinds of texts ebook readers are much better. They are light, easy to hold, and you can adjust the text size and font to suit you. I consider the ebook reader one of the greatest inventions of the last half century.
You want to flip to something you know about where it is, you find it quickly.
I’m not talking about having to bring up the search function, type in some specific thing, then find it. You might not even know just what word is applicable.
Besides, so much with books is assumed you’re reading fiction stories. In non-fiction, there is much more variety and not just narrative text. In non-f, there are many more possibilities for visual cues where things should be.
Plus there is still more eye strain with digital pixels. I can attest to that.
