...person who reads has had a chance to do each of them, and lots more, because when you read a book, you don’t just read it, you live it, you imagine yourself as the character of the book, you see yourself dealing with every situation that the character deals with and THAT EXACTLY is the magic of reading. Kristin Martz once said, “We lose ourselves in books. We find ourselves there too.” Now, the first question that might pop into your head is, “Why should I lose myself in a book when I can easily lose myself in my phone or computer?” The answer is that you might be able to lose yourself in your gadget but you won’t find yourself there. Books can make you imagine so much more, they can enhance your vocabulary, develop your personality and most important they can make you gizmos. Books think out of the little box which you are confined to because of your gadgets and will not only help you with your linguistic abilities but also with your communication skills. Conversations will always be interesting if you can talk well and that can only happen if you are well read. Books have a way to speak to you, in ways no one and nothing else can. They are the best remedy to boredom, to escape reality, to live a life which will be way more than interesting than your own. So, today, on the occasion of the world book day, I want to take the opportunity to urge all of you to just simply read. Go grab a book and lose...

Books or E- Books ?

...A book is a set of written, printed, illustrated, or blank sheets, made of ink, paper, parchment, or other materials, usually fastened together to hinge at one side. An E-book (electronic book) is a book-length publication in digital form, consisting of text, images, or both, readable on computers or other electronic devices. almost any electronic device that features a controllable viewing screen, including computers, many mobile phones, and all smart phones can also be used to read e-books. No, E-books are better than books in many ways. Firstly E-Books allow you to bring a whole library with you wherever you go. You can switch between titles with ease and the weight is lighter than a standard paperback. While carrying a lot of normal books around is not comfortable and easy as carrying an E-book and also finding a normal book is not always easy . On the other hand, there will be times where you forget to charge your E-book and then can’t read at all. You’ll never have this problem with a standard book; you can read a normal book at any time you want. For example, while travelling in an aero plane or any other transporting machine, if your E-book’s battery ended you will not be able to read while travelling unless you reach and plug your E-book in the charger. However, we can read E-books easily at night while lying on the bed, while to read a normal book at night while lying on the bed we will require special equipment. There is no doubt that...

...MAB Lecture Illustration: Walker Books Profit Planning Exercise Walker Books1 Along with his brothers, Ramsay Walker ‘inherited’ Walker Books (Walkers) from his father. Neither Ramsay nor his brothers had worked full-time in the business. He has spent the last few months becoming familiar with the business. Exhibit 1 highlights Walker and Company’s organizational structure. Ramsay held meetings with the senior staff as well as studying the state of the industry, in general. Ramsay knew the industry was undergoing change: larger publishing houses getting larger through acquisitions and dominating the market; the rapid impact of technology through developments like e-readers; and the financial difficulties confronting some of the major retailers such as Borders2. Moreover, the size of the United States market seems to have stalled with total US sales estimated at $23.9b in 2009 compared to $24.3b in 2008; while over the last seven years the industry had experienced a compound annual growth rate of 1.1%3. As a result of his investigations Ramsay developed the corporate strategy and operational plans as follows: 1. The need for a new overall corporate strategy to drive the business combined with a small number of key financial targets 2. The need to develop a number of targeted business strategies to facilitate the execution of the corporate strategy 3. A better planning and budgeting system to facilitate financial analysis of alternate action plans, that when...

...The book has no place in modern society. Discuss. Every book is a quotation; and every house is a quotation out of all forests, and mines, and stone quarries; and every man is a quotation from all his ancestors. A book is a written or printed work that has its pages sewed or glued to one another. The book has been around for years in its present printed form, advancing along with new innovations in today’s modern society, the book may have been partially replaced by the internet but it would be too extreme to say that the book has no place in modern society. Its distinctive and tangible touch is impossible to be substituted for. Thus, I feel that the book still has a place in modern society. The book still has a place in today’s modern society as today’s society is a knowledge-based one, knowledge is key to success. Books are pivotal to imparting knowledge and skills to the masses, especially to students in school. We cannot neglect the fact that the book is still the bread and butter of our lives. An example of a book that develops our skills and knowledge is the “7 Habits of Highly Effective People”, which has sold over twenty million copies worldwide. The remarkable sales figures just demonstrates the importance of the book in modern society, be it for entertainment or personal upgrade. They are the very core driving force of passing down present-day human knowledge. Some may argue that modern day innovations such as e-books serve the same function as well, however one...

...Abstract Humanity and the study of Humanity gets its basis and theories from the bible and science, In Buddhism they believe we are victims of our own devices, that we worshiped and were slaves to Satan. Thus giving us the Christian View vs. the Buddhism View, the branch of theology devoted to the study of the human race is labeled "anthropology", though it has little, if anything to do with the scientific study of humanity which goes by the same term. One definition of this theological topic is, "the examination of the origin, nature, and destiny of the human race from the perspective of its relationship to God." Perhaps a better way of looking at it is to say that anthropology is the study of the eternal questions of life: "Who am I?", "Why am I here?", and "Where am I going?" These three questions will form us a basic outline of our views on Humanity by viewpoints given of views by Christians and Buddhist. Christian Worldview of Humanity VS. Buddhism Worldview of Humanity The “Christian View” according to Bishop Ussher and Genesis 1:31 records that people were created on "the sixth day" of creation. Beyond that, we can't be certain. Bishop Ussher, basing his reckoning on the genealogies of Genesis, postulated that the world began in 4004 BC - in October, to be precise. If there are no gaps in the genealogical record of Genesis, then Ussher's date is appropriate. But a gapless genealogy is highly unlikely. What was the purpose of these genealogies...

I read the above book when I was in two minds whether to take classroom training in XML. I am glad now that I decided to study this book fully before anything else. The XML Bible is concise yet complete, elaborate yet accurate. It is multi-functional and works as a guide, tutorial, manual and reference book. The book is significant because it is both an invaluable resource and provides the much needed direction which is very much essential while trying to understand technology. I studied this book with the task of assimilating and applying the new documentation standard – XML.

Books in Digital Error

...of Printed Books in the Digital Age Name Institution Date of submission Once upon a time printed books were the undisputed medium of expressing literary culture, as well as source of information and knowledge. Books were a central part of the society acting as a vehicle for carrying and disseminating histories, ideas, stories, and pictures. However, over the centuries, the literary culture of reading and relying on printed books as the primary source of information has gradually changed. The digital age is populated with technology, which has revolutionized all aspects of lifestyle. Thompson (2005) notes that one of these aspects is the culture of reading printed material from books and other sources. In this digital age, information is readily available on the internet merely by a click of a button. This is not only convenient, but also consume less time as opposed to the earlier eras where one would take time and go to the library, search for a book, and finally read to get the required information. As a result, books are becoming less and less desirable as their future is overtaken by the digital sources of information. Today, e-books have replaced the printed version of books particularly with the invention and popularity of tablets and iPads that are perfect carriers of e-books. E-books are on the rise as the sales of printed books decrease, and soon they will completely replace the printed versions. For instance, in 2003, the sales of printed books decreased by...

My First Book

...Bibliophobe to Bibliophile. I hate books. Up until three years ago, that was something I would say on a daily basis. I despised books. The sight of thick hardbound books to an extent scared me. Whenever I saw anyone I knew picking out one of those thick books which wasn't a comic, all I did was ask them how they could go through reading the entire book without completely losing interest and getting 'bored'. While most people in around me read and discussed fantasy books such as 'Harry Potter', 'Artemis Fowl', 'Percy Jackson' etc. with such enthusiasm and zeal, all I could do was wonder how they could read hundreds of pages of printed text in tiny fonts without getting frustrated. I could not comprehend how reading hundreds of pages could in any way be more fascinating than watching a movie adaptation of the same content which saves hours of time and also allows you to live through the entire experience in a fast-paced well directed and acted version of it. It all changed completely three years ago. I have had a certain obsession to taking up as many challenges as I could possibly have from any and every person I have known. If anyone ever dared me to do an attainable task, I could never turn them down. One such challenge I received was to read an entire fiction book series of at least 6 books. After a period of discussion it was finally decided that it should be a classic series for my first and it ended up being Harry Potter on popular demand. This challenge eventually ended...

Walker Books

...According to our group’s analysis, it is determined to drop Western segment from production lines for a couple of reasons. Firstly, the external factor to drop Western segment is that Walker Books needs to prepare funds to invest on E-book production development since digital revenues are replacing tradition book revenues and Walker Books needs to start E-book business to prevent losing revenue from lack of online sales.(Appendix 5) Thus, after dropping Western segment, Walker Books will be able to spend variable costs associated with Western segment on developing E-book production. Second, the internal main factor for dropping Western Segment from production line is because dropping Western Segment has the least opportunity cost to drop in order to prepare funds for investing on E-book development based on our assumptions and analysis. Our group members concluded that Western segment has the least possibility to improve its net profit in comparison with other segments in the future. In spite of the fact Children’s Books and Mystery segments make more losses than Western segment does, we determined that Western segment will not generate much profit in the future with expense management in the future due to the small amount of gross regular sales while we inferred that net profits of Children’s Book segment and Mystery segment can greatly improve if they undergo expense management in the future thanks to their a lot of gross regular sales. b) According to Ramsay’s recognition...
