Why students need to drop the phone and pick up a book

I don’t understand how students are still being indulged in their phones. Books offer so much more to them and are never taken advantage of. Through a book, you can learn about new places and feel connected to characters you read about. Being able to relate to a character allows for a sense of comfort and can be nice when you feel alone or are just in a rough spot in life. Books are also free, and we all have access to so many in the library, so what are you waiting for? Go pick up a book and explore!
