Books have forever been regarded as the torches of enlightenment we pass on from generation to generation. They are the greatest teachers an individual with a strong sense of curiosity and willingness to explore could hope for. Generally, you can carry it with you whatever you go. However, at times it is difficult to do so for various reasons, one of them being lack of space or time to do so.
