If you choose to see books just as words on paper, you have a closed mind & meager imagination. We open minded creative people see books as adventures, as other worlds that one can enter to escape from reality. Books go a lot deeper than just words on paper. If you've ever had to analyze a text then you know that. It takes so much effort & planning for an author to write a book, to say that books are just words on paper is insulting. So please, get an education and stop being so ignorant.
