Why people started writing books Why people started writing books? The main aim of writing books is to save and transmit knowledge to future generations.
The History When writing systems were invented in ancient civilizations, nearly everything that could be written upon —stone, clay, tree bark, metal sheets—was used for writing. Sumerian clay tablets of 2400–2200 BC
Papyrus, a thick paper-like material made by weaving the stems of the papyrus plant, then pounding the woven sheet with a hammer-like tool, was used for writing in Ancient Egypt. Egyptian papyrus showing the god Osiris and the weighing of the heart
Chinese bamboo book Romans wax tablets A wax tablet is a tablet made of wood and covered with a layer of wax often linked loosely to a cover tablet, as a "double-leaved" diptych. It was used as a reusable and portable writing surface in Antiquity and throughout the Middle Ages. Woodblock printing used in China before development of paper. Woodblock printing in China is strongly associated with Buddhism, which encouraged the spread of charms and sutras
The Chinese independently developed a papermaking process during the Han Dynasty, between 202 BC and 220 AD, which is where modern paper originated.
The first printed book appeared thanks to Johannes Gutenberg. His invention of mechanical movable type printing started the Printing Revolution. Nowadays the methods used for the printing and binding of books fundamentally changed. The majority of books are printed by offset lithography.

Why do you think read or don’t read? I think people must read because reading expands the knowledge. Sometimes it helps us to decide some questions. I think reading is very interesting. And when the weather is rainy you can sit on the sofa and read some book and you don’t notice how time flies by.
How do you read? But if you read book you have to read it very attentively and don’t miss important things. But some people read books very quickly, between lines. They don’t think about what they are reading. I think it’s not right.
Book, which is worth to read to my mind I think the book which is worth to read, it’s a classical literature, for example, William Shakespeare or Michael Bulgakov, or books about main historical events of our country. For example, books about the Great Patriotic War.
My favourite book “The Dawns Here Are Quiet...” is poignant and tragic history of war that occurred away from the front. It is the story of five young women which went to the war and tried to stop the Germans, but they died protecting our country. This story was written in 1969.
