One of my 2021 resolutions is to read more tech books. As part of this effort I purchased two MEAPs (Manning Early Access Program) which will include the final printed version when completed.
For now, I’m reading the digital versions as the books are being written. But reading the digital format does not have the same effect for me. Somehow I feel further away from the content than with a printed page in front of me.
But that’s just me. I’m old school and I like to have the printed page in front of me. I can scribble on it, draw unicorns, underline big words, turn the page, bookmark every single page, use post-its, put the book on my book shelf behind me so that everyone can see it in zoom, hug the book or burn it.
Yep, I like the printed page.
So, which format do you prefer?
Paper or Pixels
