The Smallest Book Of The Biggest Events

A book is a set of papers that can be:  written, printed, illustrated, or blank. The most common materials for books are: ink, paper, parchment, or other materials, regardless of the material most of the time a book is fastened together to hinge at one side. A single sheet within a book is called a leaf, and each side of a leaf is called a page. A set of text-filled or illustrated pages produced in electronic format is known as an electronic book, or e-book.

Books may also refer to works of literature, or a main division of such a work. In library and information science, a book is called a monograph, to distinguish it from serial periodicals such as magazines, journals or newspapers. The body of all written works including books is literature.

In novels and sometimes other types of books, a book can be divided into several large sections, also called books (example: Book 1, Book 2, Book 3, and so on). An avid reader of books is a bibliophile or colloquially, bookworm.

A shop where books are bought and sold is a bookshop or bookstore. Books can also be borrowed from libraries. It is estimated that as of 2010, approximately 130,000,000 unique titles had been published.
