One good thing about books is that you get to learn about a few things without leaving your home. You would konw about the way things work in say the oposite end of the Globe, How people live in deep jungles in Africa, how do aeroplanes fly etc.
Also you can learn from other people's experiences. You can take clues from the events from other people's mistakes, great moves and be inspired.
As said so frequently, every coin has two faces and there are some very good reasons to read books and there are some reasons why I detested books.
The thing about books is that it makes one stick indoors. You would be spending long hous reading those huge novels etc. I have always been a person who would like to go out and staying indoors is the last thing I would ever do.
Also the books are at times biased. Well every form of information source is kinda biased. Talk about NewsPapers, Televisoin, Information Channels, I believe most of them are biased.
I want to add a brief summary about em. I just realized that I have read a lot of them and I don't remember the sequence of evetns ... Fors example, I don't know what happens in the Sons of Fortune or what was the ending of any Grisham... Blame it on my poor memory !
