Good example of article review on digital has not replaced print

Reading is one of the most important activities that humankind has to offer. It has changed dramatically through the years, from different alphabets to manuscripts, printing and now the digital age. All of these changes have brought renovation and impulses to different aspects of reading, yet it has not gone out of style. In the last few years, many people have said that the printed book is dead, with the electronic book replacing it. However, Robert Darton in “ Five Myths about the Information Age” correctly refutes this, arguing that the introduction of digital reading material has only modified what some people read, even augmenting reading frequency in some lights.
There are two main categories that Darton rightly discusses: the form of the material that people read and the manner with which they do it. For the first, he gives numerical figures that go against what people usually say with regards to e-books displacing print; on the contrary, the advent of digital reading material has reignited the will to read in some that still prefer to read a physical book. Furthermore, the digital age has also made print books more accessible, such as print-on-demand books. The other aspect of reading that people have supposedly lost with the advent of the digital book is the correct way to read. Darton discusses different reading strategies, which is significant because there are many various ways to do this activity, all of them being important. While sometimes it is important to read for deep comprehension, doing it for specific information is another important activity that computers make much easier.
One objection that can be made to Darton is that it is not necessarily better that more people can publish information. For higher-level learners, this is usually beneficial, as they can access different viewpoints and analyze them. However, it is important to note that this can be very hazardous to less-experienced students, who do not have the ability to discriminate between reputable sources and less-credible ones.
