Reading a book may make your eyes feel blurry, and under stress. Your body can get sick from just sitting down and not moving.
There are no disadvantage of reading.....
The vast majority of people believe that if it is in a book it must be right and correct. Some feel the same way about newspapers and the internet. Just because something has been put down into words on some media, that does not mean it is accurate. == Answer == Also, books and other printed media take up lots of room, and need to be stored carefully to avoid deteriorization and fire hazards. They must also be disposed of at some point. They use up natural resources and energy in their production.

It's only fair to offer some advantages for the sake of balance. Printed media do offer tangible evidence that a given work or point of view was at least being considered at a given time. Printed media are of course not guaranteed to be more correct or accurate. But in printed form it is easier, I think, to hold authors and publishers accountable for the materials they produce. Electronic media can seem so ephemeral to those of us who grew up with print. Electronic media can be so easily modified, with little possibility of knowing by whom or why. Nothing takes the place of sitting in a comfortable chair, with a real printed book that you can read and flip through, re-read favorite passages, turn pages.... Electronic media are important. They are here to stay. I hope that people will also see that the same can be said for books and other printed media.
