Once upon a time, there were volumes of bound pages which were called books. People use to read these “books” to gain the knowledge of the world, or even just as a quite night in bed. Ever since the dawning of the Internet age, book reading has taken a sudden nose dive, thanks to the instant gratification of RSS and Wikipedia.
