The question seems more relevant now I actually have some books thanks to my folks. I got four books for christmas. Two of which are full of graphic design nonsense and two dedicate to great british comedy.

My first thoughts on the question is that a book is something full of information dedicated to a certain topic. Books can be based on both opinion, depending on the author, and facts. Books help us gather a greater understanding on the topic in question.

A quote from a dictionary I have right here, which is also a book says "A bound set of printed or blank pages; a literary composition of fact or fiction".

An extended definition is as follows:

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. A single sheet within a book is called a leaf, and each side of a leaf is called a page. A book produced in electronic format is known as an e-book.

Books may also refer to a literature work, or a main division of such a work. In library and information science, a book is called a monograph, to distinguish it from serial periodicals such as magazines, journals or newspapers. The body of all written works including books is literature.

In novels, a book may be divided into several large sections, also called books (Book 1, Book 2, Book 3, etc).
