Cons of eBooks

  • Eyesight 

Reading eBooks without glasses can be dangerous. Your eyesight will be highly affected. Many children and specially researchers have felt this change and that is why constant exposure to screen is not recommended. 

  • A lot of distractions 

If you have got your mobile phone or laptop for reading books. Then I do not think that you can concentrate for more than 15 mins. There are several notifications which will flood in, ads and promotions will also cover your screens to distract you. 

Even if you have turned off your internet connection you will still receive messages on your network. It is inevitable if you cannot bear any disturbance then you must turn on the airplane mode. Otherwise eBooks may not be of any help to you.
