In the world of social media it is true that the relationship of young people with the book becomes problematic. There are so many challenges on the internet that the young person is unable to concentrate and focus on reading a book. In particular, the young person moves away from the book because he focuses on constant browsing passionate conversations with friends or acquaintances (conversations, messages, images) making communication a means and not purpose. However there are also young people who, despite our technocratic era, consider book as a shelter from the fast pace of everyday life. This people use the books to broaden their knowledge and expand their horizon. The role of the book in human life is very important because it is an open window to the whole world. With the book, the young man escapes the storm of the media and cultivates his imagination. In conclusion, in my opinion the book is a key to open a treasure chest. Only this treasure is not material, but spiritual. Besides, according to Cicero, “if you have a garden and a library, you have everything you need”. Let’s believe him!
