I really need to be online less. Especially here tbh.
Not exactly on topic, but I ain't never going to stop reading physical books. Being able to flip back and forth to previous pages simply works better with physical. I like being able to hold a book and not worry about battery power or any of that other shyt.
I feel you on that and I love the feeling of thumbing through a hard copy, but the feelimg of knowing I have hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of textbooks that would easily be going for 200 a pop each and the knowledge I can gain from them definitely hits different.....
You "have" them, but how much do you look at them and how many have you not even opened this year?
I have several textbooks on Kindle and I legit forget they're there. Even if I have an opportunity to reference them, I almost always look it up online rather than dig through the pages in the reader because it's too cumbersome. Whereas if I had the hardcopies on a shelf I would definitely see them and get reminded and leaf through them when it's relevant.
