this crazy little thing called: book

According to the Oxford Dictionary, a book is a written or printed work consisting of pages fastened together along one side and bound in covers.

According to me, a book is a world. While the other book is another world. And with all the books compounded, it's the universe itself.

I love book, but I don't think I have read many books enough to make me a reading maniac.

Book is not just about a story, not about an essay, not about a writing from the prologue to the epilogue, not about the papers and the ink. It's a documentary of what has happened to one's universe, to the writer's universe, or the written one's universe, or even both.You can hang on the internet and you might find almost everything on it, but lemme tell you, the everything on the internet means nothing compared to what a little thing you can find in a book.

In a book you'll find yourself dwelling in a pool where science and faith are twisted, sarcasm is laughed at, honesty jumps off the surface, values are denied, and moral is questioned.

The internet informs, while books teach.

My favourite author is JRR Tolkien, Paulo Coelho, and Robert Harris. What's yours? :)
