Why reading is important

In today’s age ruled by technology, many of us have forgotten the pleasures of ‘reading.’ Smartphones, fancy applications & subscription services for movies/shows are slowly burying the joy of reading. Now hold on, I don’t mean to stop watching your favourite sitcom or not play Mario Kart! But do reserve atleast half an hour everyday to sit back, sip coffee & read your favourite book.
And why should you read? Well, the benefits are endless. Firstly, once you start reading, you’re taken into an altogether different world,somewhere you’ve never been before! You make new friends & develop an emotional bond with the characters in the book, it’s as if the book is a part of your soul. Once you’re done reading the book, you realise that you’re back into the regular world, something you’re now not content with. And this makes you seek something more, for which you work more & your life changes for the better πŸ™‚
Reading improves your creativity drastically. It’s like a fuel for the developing mind. It makes you look at a certain situation with a very different approach. It opens up doors of Imagination you never thought existed within you! It makes you a storyteller yourself!
We all know that reading improves vocabulary to a great extent! A good way of building up your vocabulary is to read & write any new words you’ve come across. Look up for their meaning in the dictionary. This is a great exercise, especially for children, to improve their overall performance πŸ™‚
Books act as your 24/7 companion. They never make you feel lonely. Solitude is beautiful & books help you experience & discover that. A great book is the best gift you can give yourself! You discover new ideas, accept various cultures & develop into a better person πŸ™‚
The very fact that you’re reading this post signifies your love & interest for reading. Continue fuelling your mind with amazing content!

    I’ve recently started reading books 2 months back. I must say, all the points mentioned above by you are conveyed with ‘Bull’s eye perfection’. Amish Tripathi’s Shiva Trilogy instilled small bits of emotions that made my eyes teary. But one small thing to be aware of for new readers like me would be not to put all your time in the books. They are immensely addictive and are a great deal of help too. I’m happy to see some of the books I have read in your ‘favorite’ section.

      Hey! Thank you for stopping by and reading the article πŸ™‚ What you said is so true- books are really addictive and we tend to ignore other things while rejoicing in a world of our own, while reading. There has to be a perfect balance between everything πŸ™‚ Nevertheless, reading is refreshing πŸ™‚
