During the COVID-19 pandemic, Ministry Ideaz has focused on products that can help. In the past few months during the pandemic, much to our relief, every release from the organization has been uploaded to the JW website and JW Library app. So does that mean old-fashioned books are out? Is there any reason to keeping reading printed books?
We can’t deny we are going to use digital books for a long time, and now we read both digital and printed books. No matter how you do your personal study, At Ministry Ideaz, they have all the products you need to keep track of your reading and to protect those precious printed publications.
Here are 7 reasons why printed publications are here to stay:
You absorb more information: In the case of e-readers, the inability to flip back to previous pages or control the text physically, either through making written notes or bending pages, limits one’s sensory experience and thus reduces long-term memory of the text.
Printed books help children become better readers: Children ages 3 to 5 whose parents read to them from an electronic book had lower reading comprehension than children whose those that used traditional books. The kids spent more time focusing on the device itself than on the story. On the other hand, parents who used conventional books were more likely to engage in a back-and-forth discussion which helped linguistic development.
They're easier on the eyes: Electronic books can cause screen fatigue, which may lead to blurred vision, dryness, and irritation.
You're less likely to get distracted: Digital readers tend to spend more time scanning for keywords than actually processing what they’re reading. With a printed book, there’s no chance of getting distracted by links or getting sucked into social media or an advertisement.
They can help you sleep better: By reading a paper book about an hour before bed, your brain enters a new zone, distinct from that enacted by reading on an e-reader.
Having a library at home is linked to higher academic achievement: Researchers feel this is because having books at home encourages children to read for fun and talk to their parents about what they’ve learned, which only stands to benefit them at school.
They amplify the joy of reading: the process in reading a print book will help you to feel less stressed.
