A collection of paper strips, usually bound together and labeled on the cover or binding. The strips, or pages, contain various sections, or chapters, which relate facts or a story. Generally, all topics discussed in the book relate to eachother and form a point, which is the main theme of the book. Many books relate stories, whether funny, action-packed, romantic, horrible, dramatic, etc. Some books are very evil and discuss topics boring and very fact-based. These are called School books, and should be burned.

An archiac form for bringing information to the masses. Consists of several paper pages with words printed or written directly on them. After the invent of computers, books where a thing of histroy. Evidently many people on the internet cannot read words with only letters in them, they MUST contain numbers and symbols as well.

a book is a place to let your mind run free from reality, you are given words that you can completely make your own with just the way you think. a book is one of gods greatest gifts. and with new technolegy the number of books is going down and with that so is the number of people with imagination. to many they are just words assembled on pages but to others they are a work of art creating their own world.
"why do you like books so much?"
" because when i read i go into my own little world, so i can escape from the horror of reality"

The best thing to ever grace the planet. Remember the Dark Ages? That happened because there weren't enough books or people able to read them.
For a long time people valued books, but since the arrival of Internet, people have disregarded them in favor of browsing the Urban Dictionary.
Dude, do you read books?
Yeah, I love books!
We're like the only two left with that point of view!
We should totally get married!

Words have power. Books have power. Words start wars. Words end wars. Words have freed slaves, created new countries, and built confederacies. Words have power. Books are composed of words. When organized in a certain way, books can inspire people to do great things, or ignite a terrible plan. Even the simplest non-fiction books have influenced one person in a unique and amazing way. Books have power.
Books are just movies before the actors. You get to watch the whole thing play out in your head. The best part is, YOU are the producer. YOU choose the cast. YOU make the props. YOU make the movie happen, and it is unique to each and every person. Books allow you to put some words on paper to life inside your head. Unique to your understanding.
One of the best parts of reading is being transported into a different place. When an author writes with so much detail that you can feel what it is like to be there, you are reading a good book. I don't know why we can't actually be transported there. But it is almost just as good to feel the emotions in the book. One of the best things in life is reading a book that has done such a good job at creating a new world that you can almost go there. Get trapped in a book and never return. You won't regret it.
In the end, reading a book is a way of escaping to a fictional/non-fictional reality that allows your imagination to run wild. Books are powerful.
Person A: What's that?
Person B: A book. It's one of those things that old people used to use to get information before Google.
Person A: Don't they tell stories sometimes.
Person B: Yes, and reading a story in a book is one of the best things I have ever done.

Something people read. Some people use them as a resource, others read them for fun, others do only because they have to. Some people think it is nerdy and uncool and boring to read hooks for fun. on the other hand, others acctually do read for fun. I personally generally don't like reading, like 90% of books i would not read for fun.
Son/daughter: "Fuck! I have to read this fucking book for Class!"

Parent: "I thought you like reading! Reading is fun!"

Son/Daughter: "No books are fucking boring and stupid and lame! I don't like reading!"
