To make this video, multimedia journalist and videographer Josh Davis went to three bookstores in Chapel Hill and Durham, N.C., and asked store managers and customers whether they preferred print or e-books. Some of their answers were expected, such as people’s love of the smell of print books, and how they enjoyed having a break from staring into a screen. E-book users praised their devices for their portability, and enjoyed being able to carry multiple books with them without being weighed down. Perhaps most interesting were people who used both print and e-books.
