Nowadays,the influence of Internet proves to be profound.And there has been a very controversial debate as to whether or not Internet will replace the book as the main source of information. For me,although Internet is very popular and convenient,but I still like read books better.Every month I spend some money buying book.And you?

I believe (for now) books will always be alive. Internet for me is fine but I still use books sometimes. I just find books more reliable than sources from the net (sometimes). The thing that I like in the internet is the efficiency because I don’t have to scan pages and encode it afterwards that would really be a big tasks to do. When there’s internet, you just have to transcribe things and be able to print some images; you know things like that…

Hi Luckyzj, I dont think it will. I mean while I like the internet, lots of free information on here, but I cant really look at this screen all that long, and I think it makes me more tired while trying to read stuff on here. I have a nice large screen, which I thought would help, but it doesnt. Also I think its nice when I can cuddle up on the sofa with a good book and just read. I dont have a laptop so I cant very well take my whole PC to the couch! LOL I also think that people who like to read, appreciate the book, the feel of it, the smell of it just the whole idea of it. Reading on the internet is just a bit impersonal to me. I like the book much better! Bay Lay Gray xx
