Basic Information

A book is a set or collection of written, printed, illustrated, or blank sheets, made of paper, parchment, or other material, usually fastened together to hinge at one side.

In strict terms a book may also be recorded on one or more scrolls, a linked collection of writing tablets or something similar.

A collection of books is termed a library - this can refer both to the books themselves and to the room or building in which they are found, although a library which contains only records may also be called an archive.
