Power of Books
Books, magazines and newspapers have become invaluable part of our lives. We read them to entertain and inform ourselves of various matters. Now, it is being said that books may disappear from our life in times to come.
Books are a source of knowledge and entertainment. They are quite popular among the people in society. The basic reason for this is the book power. But it seems slipping from its place of importance. One reason for the disappearing of books from our lives can be said the impact of Internet. It seems like a potential rival to books
The new generation people view the traditional printed books as old and cumbersome demanding considerable time and attention. They feel it easier to hit some keys on the computer and quickly surf the relevant information.
It is hard to escape the charm of a printed book because the written words spark images and evoke metaphors that derive much of their meaning from the readers’ imagination and experience.
It can be said that thinking the future of the books is really like thinking of the future of our society and its cultural heritage. Because books are a part of memories of human mind and also help in making an enlightened society.
Will the books die? Or, will we be able to relate to the coming of the digital/electronic books? That’s something what only time will tell.
