When I was small I never used to like books, this was when I was in 4th or 5th Standard. It was like this until 7th standard, suddenly I started reading a lot. Mostly it used to be short stories. It made a difference in my life.
Books became my best friends and I started loving them.
Reading books is important, they give a lot of knowledge. Not only for knowledge but they improve your vocabulary too.
Now that is something which is basic one can obtain from books.
One can gain a lot more from books like, one can understand things better, one can get exposure to new things in life from books, they can help you for self-improvement, they can help you in communicating and most important they give you experience.
The main question is how should I inculcate this habit of reading?
Books are categorized into fiction, literature, non fiction etc. Under these there are genres like romance, drama, Thriller, Psychological, Crime, Horror and so on.
One can read the synopsis of the book from the cover behind to know what the story is about. Do not go for big novels at first. Start from the short stories if you want and then go to big novels.
Nowadays there are many sites which provides you information and reviews about the books. From there you can learn which books are good.
One can also join the Library near your locality or in college to get more collections to read.
Inculcating habit of reading can be beneficial in the long run.
There are some, for them Books are a Big NO . They just can’t read books. For them, at least try to read newspapers not the entire newspapers but at least the headlines of every page. Doing this will also be beneficial as it may initiate a habit to read.
Reading does not mean only Books or newspapers. You can read Blogs or websites. There are so many websites which provides you information and knowledge. This can also help a lot to initiate the habit of reading.
Nowadays people are getting Techno savvy, for these people there are apps which provides news and information of what is going on around the world in short. This is really handy and helpful in many ways. One can easily access these apps from your mobile to know the trending news or articles around the world.
Guys I am not a book-worm. But I do read when I get time. In school it has helped me a lot. Books were my best friends during my school days.
Once you start reading you will know the difference it will make in your life, and this difference will be good for sure.
