I cannot live without books. Thomas Jefferson.
I often hear people say that books aren’t relevant in today’s world. Any required information is easily accessible, and there is no need to read thick volumes in order to learn something new. Partially these statements are truthful, because it is easy to get information. But not all people can arrange the information, organize it and see the whole picture in diversity.
A separate article or discussion of a certain question can be compared with a piece of a puzzle. And then, a book acts like a large part of a picture where the individual parts have already been pulled together by the author.
And if you want to increase your knowledge in different fields, you have to read books.
