Back in 2014 version the paper quality is better. The 2016 paper back copy's paper quality is not good. It is too thin and hard to read due to the shadows from the words overleaf. Its small font made the reading worse.

I prefer paperback copy than the digital one. I hope printing department will do something about this plight.
