For a man who didn't say much on screen, he sure had a lot of profound and powerful things off screen. #Charlie Chaplin​

Millennials prefer print to ebooks

Print books don't go beep and boop. They don't distract with Tumblr. Millennials say they comprehend more when they read in print. And they like used textbooks that have been annotated by previous students -- “run through the mill a few times.”

Michael S Rosenwald, writing for the +Washington Post, calls this last reason "possibly lazy." He couldn't be more wrong -- a marked-up textbook is what scholarly collaboration looks like.

In contrast, I've bought hundreds of ebooks and maybe four print books since the Amazon app came to the iPad in 2010. 
Textbook makers, bookstore owners and college student surveys all find a preference for old-fashioned print.

According to a report by Campus Reform’s Kaitlyn Schallhorn posted last week, a North Carolina State University administrator emailed students to encourage them to cover up offensive speech painted in the university’s Free Expression Tunnel. Students are (supposedly) welcomed by the university to use the Tunnel to express themselves openly on a range of topics, from current events to birthday messages and event details.
