Our principal, John Mason, had his first printed book published in
1978, and up until 2007, had published over 60 printed books, but times
have changed, and along with our staff at ACS Distance Education, he has
now published around 100 ebooks. There are very good reasons for this
Printed books have existed for hundreds of years, and many people still
say they prefer a printed book.
Whether this attitude is nostalgia or
something more than that; the reality is that more people are using
e-books; and as time moves on, more and more books are only available as
e-books. If you avoid e-books completely; you will be limiting the choice
of books available to you, whether as reference books, text books or
reading for leisure.
