When you read, you can actually physically change your brain and make it believe that you have experienced what you have read. So what exactly happens to the brain as we read? The first cool thing we do is make images in our minds. As you read, you visualize and participate in the story.

Many online companies that sell all kinds of products online also offer books in large quantities. The downside with such websites is that they usually claim a percentage as commission and so the publisher or the seller has no choice but to increase the initial price in order to make profit after paying the final costs. For this reason it is recommended that you look for smaller wholesale companies that keep the initial prices down due to the lower costs. One great example is Bookpal, who offers wholesale books at affordable prices. Bookpal also runs a foundation that assists a literacy, a non-profit and a variety of educational programs with book donations and discounts on books to make them more affordable for everyone.

The term “book” is a recent innovation compared to the time "The Epic of Gilgamesh" was engraved on clay.
