With the development of the world and technology books begin to lose their importance. The Internet has changed everything. We can find whatever we need without having to buy a book. Do books really take up our precious time? Let us consider this problem in more detail.
In my opinion, reading books is still important. Firstly, it is one of the most satisfying forms of having rest. Books transfer you to other countries and continents, introduce you to amazing people and make you laugh and cry. Moreover, reading can improve your vocabulary and develop your analytical thinking. Besides, everyone can find a book and a genre that they like.
Unfortunately, quite a lot of people say that reading books is an outdated activity. Many people prefer to surf the Net or to do something else to relax.
For example, going in for sports, playing computer games, chatting with friends or just sleeping. Besides, some people firmly convinced that the fewer books they buy the more trees they save.
But I still believe that there is nothing like a good book can help you to relax and improve your brain function at the same time. Apart from that, if you can not put up with reading a paper book, you can always buy an e-book. In addition, it is very comfortable and safe for health, especially for your eyesight.
All in all, I would like to say that tastes differ. But reading fires your imagination and gives you an opportunity to 'travel' around the world. I am sure, when you read a great book, you will not be bored.
