Books are packed with knowledge, insights into a happy life, life lessons, love, fear, prayer, and helpful advice. They take a person into a different world of imagination. Good books improve the standard of living. They tone up people’s intellectual taste; they also make one’s outlook broad. Books offer so many things without asking for anything in return. Books leave a deep impact on people’s lives and are also responsible for uplifting the mood. When people started writing and register their experiences, traditions, customs, make historical chronicles, the value of writing and reading began to rise constantly. Although everyone thinks that they know exactly what they mean by a “book”, but new digital texts and new electronic devices are making them reconsider their thoughts. A book has characters, letters, words, and sometimes images. Books are considered to be read but it does not mean that it needs to have a cover and pages. The majority students who loved reading most of the times preferred physical books over eBooks as they think books are a tactile experience, which means that they are supposed to be experienced first through touch and smell. They showcase a good display of illustration and images. The study also states that students who love using technology chose e-books over printed books because of instant availability and access of many books at a single time
