We are on high technilogy era, almost all knows how internet surfing works, one advantage is its for your convenience, while in books it is expensive to buy 1.We should be thankful that there are still authors and publishers making books. for me i choose to have books in my research so i can read it and turn it from pages to pages not just scrolling down and up using a mouse. Which is great?

I like to research using the Internet. I think it is because of instant glorifaction to finding the results. When you use a book, it is time consuming unless you know where to find the answer. On the Internet you type in a few search terms and you can find that same answer.

surfing and researching online is better for me than reading books. you can search something easily here and there are many results that will help you understand more of what you are searching. if you research by book, sometimes it takes not just one book for your research to be complete and you need to write them down, or photocopy it and type it again... while at the internet, when you search and find what you are looking for all you have to do is highlight, copy and paste it, including the references from where you took your research, so very easy.

Yes we are already in the high technology era and we all know that there are lots of things in the internet. Even books are already in the internet, e-book forms, making it more handy and easier to access if we have high tech things too. But we can still rely on reading books for research but sometimes I find the internet a faster way to research.

I have nothing against books but everything is on the internet that its convenient for us to look for anything. Eversince I discovered the internet when I was younger I used to research everything online. There are just some instances that we still need to look for information in books such as for school or if you are looking for important materials that are scientific. Basically it is great to research online and read books for your favorite authors.
