The Irreplaceable Power of Paper

  1. This was a little unexpected, yet very pleasing read.

    I have also noticed that my fingers are tapping by themselves when I’m using my phone. It seems like we have merged with our devices.

    But still, reading a good, paper, book is something that will never go out of fashion. That smell of the new book can’t be replaced by any e-book reader.

    Thank you for this great brain teaser of an article. It’s definitely something to think about.

  2. Yes! I use paper mostly for writing lists and planning. There’s something about it that forces me to focus and think more clearly.

    I can’t stand planning on my phone, instead, I use a paper planner and just use my phone for things I need to remember when I don’t have paper handy.

  3. I love this! My best work seems to happen when I start with a paper and pen. A yellow legal pad is my favorite. And I still use a paper journal in the mornings to record my prayers to God. Thanks for this post and reminder that it is okay for me to keep using paper.

  4. After a long time, I was waiting to see this post. Yes, you are right paper power can’t be replaced by the digital stuff. Writing on paper is a mind training game can’t be vanished away by the digital world.

    Thanks. Nice article.

  5. Hi Loryn,

    Good one.

    From my personal experience, I can say reading an eBook for a long time is irritating, but reading any printed matter is quite comfortable & exert less burden on eyes, maybe it is because I’m a hardcore book lover.

  6. I’m so happy Somebody gets my point of writing on paper and having separate notebooks.

    I have three notebooks too:
    1. A diary for daily tasks and activities.
    2. A creative journal for quotes and ideas.
    3. A notebook for dissecting ideas, copying writing styles and personal book reviews.

    Thanks for the article, Loryn. It was insightful.
