Due to technological advancement, E-Books have become popular on mobiles and tablets. Though they are easily portable and available, they can never replace the essence of real books. 

There are plenty of reasons to love physical books more than e-books - its touch, smells, emotions it brings in, the positivity it spreads and much more.

Physical Touch

One of the best features of the physical book is its physical touch. The books and their cover are so appalling that book lovers can not resist buying them. The feeling one receives while flipping the pages of the book is more satisfying.
