There are books and there are “books“. These days, spending time on social media has made reading a very chocked up skill but nonetheless, those who still read, understand that nothing beats the acts of soaking up the words from books. Books transcend videos and only audios come a bit close. Books help to paint a vivid picture of the writer’s imagination in your mind. This is one of the things reading helps you achieve that no other means of knowledge acquisition can.
