We still follow the ancient books to get further knowledge and which encourage the human nature to go for more experiments with an open mind to adding up more and new information. A book can be as many pages as a writer want. Even a 10 pages book could be the reason of knowledge. Before a book gets print it gets proofread by the writer and the publisher house to understand and to check if the provided information is correct and original. People are trying to save books and they are offering free open libraries on the streets to get the books they want to read and simultaneously to donate another book as well.
