An important disadvantage is the price. Cheap e-books quickly deteriorate or have limited storage space. And the more expensive ones are not affordable for every lover to read at their leisure. Another drawback is the fragility of e-books. If you drop it on a stone or asphalt, the body will crack. and the screen can break, while the paper book can easily withstand almost any impact. In addition, e-books require periodic recharging, unlike the usual paper books.
