Topic: With the rise of e-books comes the decline in paper books. Some people see this as a good step forward while others do not. What are the advantages and disadvantages of this trend?

The number of people using e-books is increasing while paper books are losing popularity. Many people think that this is a good trend while others have the opposite opinion. To me, this trend has not only benefits but also drawbacks.

On the one hand, this trend has some advantages. Firstly, e-books are flexible and convenient because we only need an electronic device with an internet connection, we can easily read books even it takes only 10-15 minutes to download a set of the book to our computer or phone. Secondly, the price of e-books is cheap and even free. There are a lot of sources of books on the internet that you can download for free, and you only need one click and wait. For example, I often download some e-books to my computer to read or listen, and it didn’t take much time.

On the other hand, e-books have some disadvantages. First of all, e-books are harmful to health, especially to the eyes because the eyes are exposed directly to the screen light of electronic devices so if we read e-books for a long time, it will cause eye strain and can lead to short-sighted. We should limit reading e-books in the evening because the light of a laptop screen or phone can cause insomnia and many other consequences. Secondly, for the old who often do not know how to use a smartphone or laptop, which is very difficult for them to read books. Therefore, paper books are often a good choice for the elderly because it is convenient and does not harm their health. My grandparents, for example, they have a lot of paper books in their house and both do not know how to use electronic devices to read e-books.

In conclusion, although e-books have many merits to our life, they also have drawbacks to our health and the old.
