    I like reading classical literature in paper books. But being a student, I see that innovations are one step ahead from our educational system. And I agree with those students who seek for using digital textbooks. I can read any books at my tablet, listen to different podcasts, watch educative videos and my favorite TV shows. 🙂 My tablet is always with me.
    Thanks for the interesting infographic!

    The infographic is brilliant. But you know I don’t like e-books. Yes, they are more convenient than paper books but I don’t like the process of reading if I use e-book. I like the smell of paper) And I like to go book store. It is much more awesome than just download books.
