Subject: Reading books is a waste of time. All the knowledge you need is online. Write an opinion essay.

In today's world more and more people use the Internet. Some of them think that books are obsolete and every information you need is on the Internet. I strongly believe that the World Wide Web is more useful than books.
First of all, the Internet is more comprehensive source of the knowledge. There are billions of subjects about everything. Everybody can find some information for him. The main advantage of this is that you don't have to use table of contents and go through whole book.
Secondly, all the books you need are online. There are existing eBooks and Audio books, which can replace traditional books. For instance, you mustn't go to a library and check it out, you can just download it at home. As a result, it's quicker and more comfortable.
Moreover, the Internet is multimedia. In a book is only a black text on a white paper, while in the Internet are many animations and pictures, which can help you to remember and understood modern issues.
Argument against using the Internet is that it isn't reliable source of information. There are a lot of mistakes made by users. Books have more plausible issues, which makes them better source of knowledge.

I dont't have the ending, but what do you think about that?

As a result, it's quicker and more comfortable. Moreover, the Internet is supports multimedia formats. A In a book is only a black text on a white paper, while on in the Internet are many animations and pictures, which can help you to remember and understood modern issues.

One argument against using the Internet is that it isn't a reliable source of information. There are a lot of mistakes made by authors users. Books have more plausible (?) issues, which makes them better sources of knowledge.

I don't have the ending, but what do you think about that?

It's a good start.

Personally, I don't think that reading books is a waste of time. I enjoy the stories. I can appreciate the great classics from a long time ago. I belong to a book club where my friends and I discuss books and their ideas. I read books in bed or while flying, A good read puts me to sleep, and makes the hours pass by quickly on a long trip. To me, an eBook is just another kind of book; it is not a web site.
If you can separate truth from fiction and fact from opinion, the Internet is great as a quick reference for information. But it cannot build up your knowledge on a subject as a well-written textbook can.

Thank you for improvement my work. Yes, you're right, but I believe that Internet is more useful. You just use Google and find out whatever you want. But on the other hand, book is a book and it will be always better Emotion: smile
Hello,

Internet is better than books. We have to buy or borrow the books in a shop or in a library. But,when we read books from internet, we don't need to borrow,just download it and read it in your computer. It saves time and energy. Moreover,it also saves your money. Therefore, I think internet is better than books.

Great opinion! I enjoyed reading that.

Internet is much more better than books because paper is being wasted and which is causing deforestation which is playing an important role in the global warming! we can use eBooks and other types of electronic means to get information.we have a vast knowledge on internet. we just need a keyword and the information is there at no time. No time wasted in finding the right book with more information and No energy wasted by going to the library and finding the book..!

As a writer of historical articles about the mule (yes, the animal), I have to disagree strongly regarding the internet being a better resource for accurate information than a book. Another thing that I would like to point out to the writer of the opinion is that you are incorrect when you state that all books can be found online. Nothing couuld be further from the truth and there are thousands of books that have not been digitalized and probably never will be, due to them being obscure. I cannot tell you how much misinformation is "out there" in cyberspace regarding mules and donkeys. Yes, the internet is a fine place to begin research, but not the place to finish it. That is best done through a library, reading books and speaking to experts. Thank goodness for World Cat which allows you to locate a book that may or may not be on the internet and borrow it through inter-library loan. Give me an actual book over an electronic device anytime!

Books are so much better than the Internet. Books have to be checked and published but on the internet people can just put things up. They don't even have to be true. I personally prefer the feel of paper in a book as opposed to a screen. iPads, kindles and computers hurt your eyes. Think about it, in twenty years time, the kids may not even know what a book is! Do we want that?...........
