Book reading far better than social media use
Still many people believe that the Internet has more benefits compared to reading books, they believe that internet is way faster. True, Internet is fast, and the power of the internet can’t be denied, but books are a slow process because they allow their users and readers to internalize, respond, react and transform. Books are indeed more reliable than the sources on the internet because they have been reviewed before publishing. The information of books stays for a long period while you may have the information on the internet changing every hour.
Books have been proved more reliable but the internet is conventional. You actually know that the source in books is legitimate than that on the internet. The internet has so much information, anything can be posted at any time and you have no idea whether it is honest, true, or false. The Internet itself was invented because of books. The internet has understood the power of books as nowadays digital books are being sold on the internet, there are many web pages and app which sells books, printed, digital, in all format.
Books are the storehouse of single-topic information, it is comprehensive, specific and complete, all the information which is needed stored within. Books don’t confuse us, they never waste our brain energy to decide where to go next, the forward flip of each page makes that decision for us, reserving all our energy for learning.
Reading makes us feel intelligent and enlivened, Reading is more comfortable and more imaginative, When we read a book we get into it, our brain starts functioning, our imagination get wings, Imagination has the power to make you what you always desire, I am not saying that the internet has no value or it is not useful, Internet is too valuable and useful, we can get information from the internet too, we can get information, knowledge both ways, but it is on us on which information and knowledge we should rely more, the internet shows many options related to the same topic, but book is based on single-topic and book usually has all knowledge, information related to your interest within it, so at the end it is your choice and decision either to rely on internet or to compare both information, knowledge, and wisdom and then come to a conclusion.
Read this to learn how to enjoy reading books.
