Why you read books?

We are living in a digital age that really changes people in every aspect of their lives. Television, computer, mobile phone and many more devices that give pleasure are just everywhere. Because of this, people spend less time reading books and forget the importance of it. Technology is good, the use of the internet makes our life easier, but we should not forget the books. Bear in mind that anything written by great thinkers in the past is often available in books. To convince you with this, Reading Adventurers you time group (Year 4 students) compiled video clips of what others have to say about the importance of reading books.
