A collection of written or printed works, bound together in pages. Books usually contain text and images or mix of both. Since the development of the printing press, books have been the primary means of exchanging information and knowledge. Even today, when information can be exchanged freely using digital means, books remain a popular way of distributing knowledge to people.

Books are user friendly, portable, randomly accessible, information retrieval media some have described as elegant.

Books, if stored correctly, can remain useable for hundreds of years. Some people use this as a reason for the continuous recording information on paper, particularly in case of a future apocalypse that could destroy or render inoperable computers and other digital media.
