I prefer reading both as old books can be just as entertaining and informative as newer ones. Older books also allow you to slip into the past, into times you never got to be apart of.

Recent books are better and updated....while old books won't get you updated.....but if you like old books I ain't saying you should stop reading them....but I prefer recent books.

Both! Anything and everything!

When I was a kid, my family went to visit my aunt and cousins. My cousin found me reading the instructions on the lid of the washing machine, rolled his eyes, and said, "Mom, we need to take Misty to the library TODAY."

The only bearing the publication date has for me is the language and the relevance. Sometimes, old books are hard to read because of the way it was written. Sometimes, there are many concepts that are obsolete. I'd give anything a chance either way.
