Some people don’t like reading, but wise people like reading and they are always looking for something to read to get information. I believe that reading is indispensable for our lives because newspapers, blogs and books are they contain good information, and they are very trustworthy.
Newspapers are an essential medium to convey daily news, and they are also easy to access for people. Therefore, people can get barrages of important knowledge about our society via newspapers. Based on accurate data that people get from newspapers, people can predict and prepare for future events. They also raise their critical thinking toward our society.
Blogs are easier to access to people than newspapers because only things people should have is their cellphones and computers to access. Blogs have more variety of information than newspapers such as daily life and cooking methods. People like to read blogs because they are fun, and they contain much information. Blogs also contain more detail stories, and they show other facet of stories because bloggers collect huge amount of data and analyze them. Therefore, blogs contain good resources to help us.
Books are equally important for our lives because people can get as much information as newspaper and blog when people read books. People can also chose to read the range of fantasy books to education books. People can expand my imagination while they are reading fantasy and science-fiction. People can also get lots of reliable primary sources from education books. Therefore, Books are very fundamental for our lives.
In conclusion, people should know the importance of newspapers,blogs and books because they cultivate our minds and behaviors in some ways.

I don't feel people have forgotten their importance, but now there are many mediums and formats they appear in. One does not have to get the daily paper to read what is happening. They can now venture to CNN.com, nytimes.com, or latimes.com to see the news unfold. The same is in a way with books. Many people are opting out of buying a paper copy of a book to download an electronic version as more copies can be stored and it becomes easier to carry for travel. I see the forms evolving not being forgotten.
