Books Are Better Than social media


Vijay Garg

Still, many people believe that the Internet has more benefits compared to reading books, they believe that the internet is way faster, True, the Internet is fast, and the power of the internet can’t be denied, But Books are 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 came from books. You can learn why are books important. The internet has understood the power of books, which 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 stores within,  books don’t confuse us, it never wastes 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, the 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 the book is based on single-topic and the 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 the internet or to compare both information, knowledge, and wisdom and then come to a conclusion. Read this to learn how to enjoy reading books.

Top 5 Reasons Why Books are better than internet

1) Single-topic information

The Internet can bring you back with 100,000 Answers,  But Reading a Book can bring you back to the right one, as I said above books are single-topic information, You will get all information and knowledge related to your question within it.

2) Books are relaxing

Yes, Books are more relaxing, it reduces depression, it reduces stress anxiety, it takes you to the imaginative world, it puts your mind and body at ease, losing yourself in a great story can be the perfect remedy for stress.

) Lifelong principles

As I said Above, Books are a slow process because it allows their users and readers to internalize, respond, react and transform, The lifelong principles mentioned in a book, motivates readers, gives them the new path and new perspective, makes them see the world in a more positive way, make them see the world with a different perspective altogether, make them understand the actual happiness and reality of life, make them more responsible.

4) Brings positivity

Books spread motivation and positivity amongst its readers, it shares knowledge which allows the reader to see the world in a new way, it reduces mental pressure by giving a solution to their problems, books usually don’t have untrue facts, logic or information, books go through thorough checking before it gets published, the internet has the possibility of fake facts, Internet distract users by pop-ups and links, and the internet has many pages which share adultery videos, which usually distract users attention and focus, but that’s not the case with books, books are the single-based topic, they don’t have pop-ups and don’t share things which aren’t required.

5) Mentor talks

Through books we learn from mentors, we learn from people who had faced the same problem which we are facing right now, in books mentor share solutions, their wisdom, their knowledge, and how they dealt with the problems, books are solution giver.
