Computers are better than books. We just need to face it. It makes our lives alot easier for work and school. Even though it uses electricity books have pages in them and what are pages made out of ? Of course they are made out of paper which cuts down tress. Some animals live in trees and we need trees they give off oxygen which is what we breath.

I beg to differ. Yes, computers may be "easier," for work and school. Surely, patience is a discipline that students, like myself, need to acquire however. I believe it to be almost, soulless obtaining information from the Internet, compared to books and in actual fact sometimes incorrect information is given, for instance, "Wikipedia," is renowned for this. Becoming heavily reliant on electricity, is hardly eco-friendly and not 100% reliable if a connection is poor or if there is a powercut. Indeed huge quantities of paper are used in the production of books, but this compared to the plastic, metal and electricity being used, is, I believe a small crime in comparison as at least paper is bio degradable, something metal and plastic cannot boast.
