5 Reasons eBooks Are an Upgrade From Printed Books

Why You Should Switch to eBooks From Printed Books

Printed books won’t go the way of the flightless Dodo bird. They’ve been here for so long and have stood the test of time. There will always be a market for them. In fact, many people will favor a printed booklet over a digital version of that same booklet.

But that doesn’t mean eBooks aren’t a better option in many ways. It pays to consider why your next book should be a digital reproduction rather than a physical book.

According to one source, eBooks accounted for almost one in five — 18% — of all books sold in the first six months of 2021. The same source notes that 191 million eBooks were sold in 2020. That was up 12.35% from the year prior.

Continue reading for five reasons why eBooks are an upgrade compared to print books.


Can you imagine having to lug around your entire book collection? If you have a formidable collection of books in your home, you can imagine what a back-breaking chore it would be to carry all of them around with you. In fact, it might be impossible. But you can download dozens, hundreds, or thousands of eBooks onto a device.

Whether you want to read your digital books via eReader, tablet, smartphone, or computer, you can store them on the device and easily access them. It’s like digitizing your own personal library. You won’t need to dedicate a bunch of space in your home for bookcases — and you can take your eBooks with you with no fuss.


Did you know that the average human attention span is 8.25 seconds — while the average goldfish attention span is nine seconds? People spend so much time watching TV, checking social media accounts, or staring at their smartphones that they don’t typically read as much as people did previously. Attention spans are dreadfully short.

But eBooks can help to keep the attention of readers since they’re more engaging. For example, eBook publishers can include images, videos, and audio components that help to engage readers and capture their attention for longer periods of time. So, eBooks can be useful in academic learning environments.

Less Expensive

Would you pay twice as much to get a physical book over an eBook? One source notes that a brand-new hardcover book can cost $30, while an eBook version of the same book might cost you $15. If you have an ever-expanding collection of books, you might spend a small fortune to scratch that itch. But buying eBooks will save you money. It’s the perfect option if you’re an unapologetic bookworm who needs to buy books regularly.

Updated Content

Another advantage of eBooks over physical books is that the former can easily be updated, whereas the latter can’t. If there are misprints in a digital book, corrections can be made easily. The eBook owner can get the updated content in no time flat.

But if there are misprints in a print book, the best the publisher can do is include the updated information in future print runs. Books with mistakes will remain as is. So, if you like getting timely updates to the books you buy, go with eBooks.


You can carry your eBooks with you anywhere. Whether you’re a passenger in a car, traveling by plane, sitting on a bus or streetcar, relaxing in the cafeteria at work, or whatever else, you can read eBooks on your eReader device. You won’t have to struggle to take along a bunch of books — you can fit them all on a lightweight eReader. You can enjoy books when you want and where you want for ultimate flexibility.

As you can see, eBooks have many advantages over physical books. Many people enjoy physical books and eBooks, so you don’t have to choose one over the other. But you don’t know what you’ve been missing if you’ve never tried eBooks.
