THE ANSWER

Hi, … I hope that you haven’t forgotten about the project we are going to do together. You know, I have found a couple of great pictures for it.

In the first picture there is a girl with a book in her hands and some other students looking for paper books in the library. In the second one a girl is holding an eBook. She must be at home judging by the furniture and that she is alone in the room.

These two pictures have a couple of differences. Firstly, they underline two different types of books: a paper book and an eBook. Secondly, the presence or absence of the need to go to a public place to take a book is a significant difference too.

I suppose in the project we have to mention the advantages and disadvantages of two types of books. It’s obvious that reading an eBook saves our time as we don’t have to go to the library or a bookshop; also it’s often possible to find and download an eBook for free. As for advantages of paper books I would say that it’s easier to understand information and data especially if we are talking about educational literature with graphs and tables.

I think that both of these photos properly illustrate the topic of our project. The first one shows the traditional way of keeping and receiving information from a paper book, while the second one presents the modern way of living which is impossible without gadgets like eBooks. Both pictures together provoke reflection and arguments about our topic.

As for me I can’t imagine my life without gadgets. I’m sure we need to use them as they help us live a better and easier life.

I want to know what you think about my ideas as soon as possible so, please, call me back.
