Gramedia Reviews: Using the Gramedia Digital application is actually easy and delicious. Especially in a pandemic season like now. With Gramedia Digital, you don't need to bother going to a bookstore or ordering books online. More safety.
Digital books are also more environmentally friendly and don't take up much space. This also helps me store books, because if I store books at home they are usually eaten by termites.
I already had 1 box of books that had to be thrown away because they were no longer safe to be eaten by termites, the problem was that the house was full of wood and not yet used ceramics.
For those who don't know what Gramedia Digital is like, let me explain a little.
Gramedia digital is a digital book application launched by Gramedia. Here you can buy books in digital form (e-books) or subscribe to packages provided by Gramedia.
Buy digital books (e-books)
The first option offered is that you can buy books published by Gramedia (and also other publishers associated with Gramedia).
The books sold are more or less the same as those sold in the offline store, but you could also say that there are even more in the digital version. There are also many foreign books (not translations) that you can buy.
An example is the book below.
When it comes to price, the price of the digital version is of course slightly cheaper than the printed version. Yes, the production cost factor is smaller too.
Cancer Book – Siddartha Mukerjee digital version
Cancer Books – Siddartha Mukerjee printed version
Approximately 11 thousand difference, not including postage.
Oh yes, check the single issued price. If you use a package, it will be a different story
Purchasing a single issue means you buy the book in full. Yes, it's like buying an ordinary book and there's no time limit. Regarding the non-fiction premium package and full premium package, it will be explained in the next point.
Buy the premium package
There are several types of packages offered by Gramedia Digital, namely:
Each package has different types of books that can be read and a time period with different limits.
Kids Premium Package: Contains books specifically for children
Fiction Premium Package: Fiction books
Non-Fiction Premium Package: Non-fiction books
Full premium package: Free access to all books, both fiction and non-fiction
Digital Xkompas: Free access to all Kompas books and newspapers
Once you have downloaded the book, it is not yours forever. If the package's active period has expired, you can't read it anymore or need to extend the active period.
In my experience, after trying to use the Non-Fiction Premium Package and Full Premium Package packages, this really makes it easier to read good books at a price range that doesn't touch my pocket hahaha.
However, not all books can be read. There are also several books by authors like Stephen Hawking or Carl Sagan that apparently you have to buy first before you can read them. But, that's no problem either.
So if it's good, why buy a physical book or print it again?
It turns out that my eyes can't read books on my cellphone, because I don't have a notebook or Kiddel. So I read books on my cellphone.
…and as we are aware, reading on a cell phone quickly makes the eyes tired and makes it easy to lose focus. What's more, I've lost a lot of food, as a result my head gets dizzy looking at the cellphone screen for too long.
Finally, I switched back to buying printed books and didn't use Gramedia Digital first. I want to use it again, but maybe if I already have a device that is suitable and comfortable for reading.
BTW, this is the book I bought. About a week ago.
That's it, maybe I'll review it in the next post. While it includes books that have just been released by the author.
