The internet can never replace the book.

The man’s best friend, Book, how faithful it has been to human beings since ages. The original storehouse of knowledge, Book, now sincerely it has served us with all the information. Well, sadly its importance is still neglected.
Who needs the library, when the whole globe is on Google. Everybody is running after Wikipedia, Oxford seems to be forgotten. It is that time when encyclopedias and dictionaries are tasting the dust, and the internet providing with the past, present, future for anything which is needed.
Science says, “Long hours in contact with technology may disturb your health.”
According to that, if Harry Potter and the deathly hallows was to be only available on the net.. Every next person would have approached the next door doctor.
And yes, Harry Potter would not have been so famous had it been solely an e-book.
The essence of getting into a book and only awakening to reality once the clock starts celebrating midnight. The essence turning the pages, expecting things, the anxiety about what’s next, about a new pathway to the story. The feeling cannot be described in sentences like these. A downloaded PDF file may never serve with the same essence.
The democratic power sharing policy may by chance come into use, but the books will always remain our heritage and our future.
When Twitter came, it always attracted tweeple but Facebook never lost its “status”
The revolutionary e-book may soon diminish, may “paper” bookmarks always enjoy the fancy to get plugged into best sellers. Long live the book!
