"Most people today use the internet to do many things, its an office, a library, you can watch movies, the options are endless. This is the reason why the use books have fallen out of favor especially to the young. There is, however, a specific situation wherein using a book is still helpful, this is when you do not have access to the internet. A book can still help in such a situation if there is an urgent need to do some type of research for an assignment, assuming of course that the books are updated in terms of the information they contain. Remember! that encyclopedias from decades ago are not completely reliable since the information in them are updated regularly especially with new discoveries and territorial changes among countries.
