On the internet anyone can come up and post information and it is not revised or edited. Any of the information can be false on the internet. An example can be this website itself people are posting facts that probably aren't revised. However books are strictly revised 6-8 times by professionals. Therefore books are more reliable.
It is accurate because before publishing it was strictly checked and approved by the publishers. Hence, internet has a lot of information but some of it is not accurate and non sense because anyone can upload information regarding to the topic but it does not really useful and correct. Books are better to use then.
I, for one love the internet. But, think about it. It takes a lot to write and publish a book. You can't just say "here's my book" and it's on the market. But, with the internet, you just write what you want. I do say that this can be a little different if you find a credible resource. But, all in all, I think books are better.
People on the internet just may post up rumours and none of it is true but books have facts in them, reliable facts. As a general rule, books are a more trustworthy source than the Internet –but that doesn’t mean that the Internet can’t be reliable too!
Why Isn’t The Internet As Reliable As A Book? The main reason that the Internet is less reliable than a book is because anybody can upload something to the internet. Online, you can say something without backing it up, whereas if you make a claim in a reference book, you have to be able to state your source.
Websites like Wikipedia allow anyone to make a contribution, and so there’s no telling how reliable they are – for all you know, somebody could have completely made the information up!
How To Tell If A Website Is Reliable Usually, if they cite their sources, there’s a good chance that the information is correct. If there are spelling and grammar errors, or the tone of the page doesn’t sound very professional, then you should think carefully before trusting it.
Company websites – or websites for things such as museums, art galleries and university research departments – pretty much have to be accurate, because they depend on people taking them seriously. Trust your judgement: If the website doesn’t seem as reliable as a book, it probably isn’t!
Some books are trash, but for the most part getting a book to publication requires a high level of talent, commitment, and research on the part of the writer. Anyone can publish anything they want to on the Internet. There is no requirement of truth or reliabilty, and the Internet has the added benefit of complete anonymity, so people can commit libel without reprisal.
Because i said it is and i will tell you that the internet is a big lie. I don't care what you say so go cry. I want to live my live and read true stuff not lies. So go ahead and read lies on the internet i don't really care it is not my mind believing lies. So ya bbbbbyyyyyeeee
Books are more reliable than the Internet as few people can get published. By going through all the processes to get published, obviously the information will be accurate and not just written in a hurry. Online, anyway can post what they want and is not always reliable. Just this morning I read on Tumblr a post about 5 Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays in July and after checking, it does not exist. The Internet allows anyone to create information and "facts" but books are more reliable as it is a longer process that verifies accuracy.
Publishing on the internet is far easier with less oversight than publishing a book. The complexity of the processes and extra editing gives books an advantage in reliability. However, this does not mean that all books are reliable and all internet sites are unreliable. It is important to use best judgment and think critically about the source.
Most books are more reliable than the internet. Books have references and credible sources to back up their information. Most of the internet does not have that. Any and everyone can post information online and not even have to look up if what they're saying is true or not. Books are more credible.
Books are more reliable because people can go on the internet and put anything they want such as the website wikipedia. My school has a great amount of books that can be used for reasearch but kids will use the internet and get questions wrong. I love reading and will always use books.
Internet is a very compact sort of information source. It is very much updated as uploading something on the internet takes maximum 5 minutes. Whereas if you want to do the same with books, by the time you will finish publishing it the news will be modified or old. Also the internet gives accurate information checked and corrected by many people whereas the author of the book may be racist and/or hurt someone's religious or personal outlook. Hence Internet is better.
When you are using something as a source, whether it is the Internet or a physical book, you should be sure that the source is legitimate. Anything can be biased, whether it is printed pages or something online. Anything can be false. Something being published in a book does not make it inherently more reliable than something on the internet.
If you live in america, pick up a history book about the civil war and you will see something along the lines of "Oh the British were being bad people who were taxing us and doing bad things so we fought back and got freedom."
Now picking up a British history book about the civil war and you will see something along the lines of "America was evil and wouldn't accept out help and then attacked us. They're bad guys." Basically when the author of a book has it, he can write whatever he wanted and no one would truly know what he is writing is true or accurate.
Same with science books, we discover new things every day, but since books are expensive and take forever to make, they will always be outdated no matter what. The internet though, the information can go online instantly, and update constantly.
Also if someone did say something inaccurate online most people will go out and prove it false.
People assume that because print sources need to go through some sort of publishing process, they are more accurate, but on the contrary, books can be just as inaccurate as the internet. For example, Alex Jones wrote an entire book suggesting that the United States government had orchestrated 9/11 and because of the perception of books as accurate, there is less of an inclination to find multiple sources that support the same theories.
If you use either as a source, you should ensure that they come from respected authors and publishers and double check all information you collect.

The internet saves more time an energy for example let's say you have a book report on animals. If you wanted to read a book you would have to buy it but on the internet all you need to do is search it up on google. It's the 21st century so wake and smell the keyboard people.
There are tons of authors who write false books because they will sell like the whole cherry tree myth about George Washington was written in the book "The Life Of Washington" and since it was a book people believed it. But with the internet people are more weary and know to doule check the information.
