Solution

Instructor: We have finally reached the final round of the National Youth Day inter-college group discussion contest and the topic of this round’s discussion is ‘Paper Books are better than the E-Books’. Let the discussion begin.
Maithili: Any book lover would know the feeling of holding a paper book in your hands. Print books have the feel of a book and you can hold it, turn the pages, and feel the paper. You cannot get the same experience with e-books.
Vijay: I agree with Maithili. The satisfaction of physically going to a library and picking out a book is priceless. A part of research conducted across Europe mentions that information is easier recalled when it was read from a paper book as compared to an e-book. Most of us already spend enough time being glued to screens, and staring at another one to read is not very encouraging.
Derek: I have to disagree. E-books are much cheaper as compared to paper books, and are much easier to carry anywhere. It is the feeling of a library at your fingertip.
Vijay: I agree with Derek that an e-book is portable. Besides, you can access the dictionary easily and browse the web too. You can also highlight key parts and browse it conveniently. However, the cost of a Kindle or a reading tablet is high. It is also uncomfortable to read on an electronic device in the sunlight.
Karan: I agree with Vijay. And electronics aren’t really durable when we think of it. Your gadget will last for 5 to 7 years, but a book once bought is yours for a lifetime.
Vijay: And books have so many memories attached to it. They remind us of our bedtime stories with family, Book exchanges of your favorite actor or genre, school readings and so much more.
Maithili: To conclude, I feel that it depends on each person what they prefer. Paper books have a different feeling, but e-books have their fair share of perks too.
