【首段】背景引见 + 争议焦点 + 作家立场
Reading has a key role to play in people’s relaxation. Sure enough，it is not rare to see that the enormous popularity of electric equipments, such as iphone and ipad, keeps on soaring. Many people prefer to read e-books rather than the traditional paper books. Hence, people differ greatly in their views as to whether or not the printed books will be still of great necessity. As I see it, paper books could never be substituted because of their unique merits.
Primarily，although it is easy to acquire and utilize e-books, it is far from easy, for millions of people, to change their deeply-rooted habits of reading paper books. More precisely, numerous people insist on browsing paper books in traditional way because they can take notes in the blank of a page. A hard truth can justify my stand. Traditional books were often predicted to be replaced by new technology such as the Internet or smart phones in the past several decades, however, this prediction has never been realized until now. Similarly, traditional books will not withdraw from the stage of history due to e-reading.
What I would like to add is that a newly published book or magazine could best stimulate one’s reading impulse for the simple reason that a great many readers enjoy the fragrance of paper book and can feel the sense of ownership when holding a book. Unlike using e-books, which is just a sort of fast-food reading, traditional reading enables people to have an in-depth thinking and thus enhance their literacy.
Indeed, there must be some reasons to account for the popularization of e-reading. Seen from the positive aspects, e-books not only provide words, illustrations and pictures that traditional books have, but also add sounds, moving images and cartoons that printed books cannot offer. Another merit of e-books is that they can be eco-friendly because less paper will be needed. Last, electronic libraries cannot only save more space but also store more information.
【尾段】再次亮明观念 + 总结理由
To sum up, it is my view that under no circumstances can we ignore the immense value of print books and magazines. Printed books and e-reading are not mutually exclusive, for they enjoy respective merits. Therefore, both of them will co-exist, e-books can be a beneficial alternative to traditional books.
