In the age of digital it's hard to conceive a physical anything anymore. There are e-books, e-courses, e-stores but do you remember when you grabbed a physical copy of a book?
As a child, I was a book worm I would stay up all night reading books so while I enjoy the convenience of not having to wait for a physical copy in my hand, I still love my physical books.
3 Reasons Physical Books Are Important
1. E-Books Don't Connect. E-books feel like I'm on Facebook. There was a study that reported that "the haptic and tactile feedback of a Kindle does not provide the same support for mental reconstruction of a story as a print packet book does". I can definitely attest to this study because I notice when I read books I feel as though I am there but when I read a e-book it feels really distant to me and hard for me to remember what I read.
2. You meet people in bookstores. What better way to socialize than in person. Noelle Santos who seeks to start a bookstore in the Bronx understands the importance of a physical bookstore.
3. Digital breaks down on you. What becomes annoying to me is having to stay charged up and read.
With all that said The Tea is a great start to getting back to physical copies of books. You follow along with these lovely ladies as they chit chat around a physical book.
"The Tea is the online talk show that sounds like a book club but feels so close to home".
