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.
