    :hello: WHY YOU LOVE READING BOOKS :hello:

    I have read lots of books but forgotten most of them. What's the purpose of reading?
    A young boy once told his wise older teacher:

    I have read a book but it didn't stick to my memory. what is the purpose of reading then?

    The teacher asked his student to get a date and eat it.

    Then he asked him:

    [​IMG]
    Has the date helped you to grow immediately?

    Absolutely not!

    The date you have just eaten provided your skin, bones, muscles and nerves with nutrients and many benefits.

    You didn't feel it, but it happened.

    This famous Arabic story somehow shows how reading works to improve us.

    Every book you read helps you to build new vocabulary, learn new information, improve your writing skills, as well as your critical thinking skills, understanding of the world. . . and the list goes on.

    Every book you read makes you a better human being regardless of whether you were conscious of it or not!

    I agree, books teaches us a lot of things in life. There are a lot of lessons to be learned, just in a different perspective.

    Reading teaches us many new things.
    Reading improves our imagination and creativity.
    Reading takes us to multiple places and we can live a thousand lives by reading many books.
    Reading widens our horizons and perspectives.
    Reading right books leads to lot of self enquiry, and in turn we look out for the answers too.
    Reading gives confidence.

    Keep reading more and more, books are man's best friend.... When one is hooked to reading good content, he needs no other friend. A book is a best friend a man can rely on.

    You put it succinctly.
    Few hundred books and few years later, it gives the reader ability to READ BETWEEN THE LINES.

    Thanks and Regards.
