To some students, carrying an extra book to read is what they’ve always done; to others, having a book that they can pull up on their phone or Kindle is simpler and more convenient for them.
Whether the book is online or in physical form, they typically contain the same content and layout as the other. It seems easier to use the online version of the book to avoid backaches because there are thousands of articles and books available by the touch of a button.
The advantages of an online books are much more prominent than those of a hard-cover book. For starters, the online books cost significantly less than a hardcover, sometimes by more than ten dollars. There are also various search options available with online books; whereas, a physical book could take hours to skim through for a small piece of information.
