Reading helps in every sphere of our lives as it enriches our mind as well as develops our personality. In the growing world of internet, still there are vast majority of people who still consider reading books essential. My personal opinion goes on the same direction. Reading is a means of language acquisition of communication, and of sharing information and ideas. Reading to young children is a recommended way to instill language and expression, and to promote comprehension of text. It is an important skill and it is very important for us to develop this skill in children since childhood, for an excellent brain and personality development.
Books are a great source of ideas, big and small. We all read something or the other but for different purposes. It varies from person to person just as the reading choices vary from one another. Some people read to develop more knowledge, to be entertained and laugh, to engage and interact. Reading is typically an individual activity and a very personal. It helps in personal development of an individual. We read very often to escape from the tensions and stress of life, to address boredom and the inexorable progress of time. It is an excellent way to learn, know other's opinions, to be informed, to understand others (individually and culturally), to get inspired and communicate better and to see things from a different perspective. It helps us to research and keep up-to-date with society, and even connect with like-minded people. It gives us an opportunity to travel to different landscapes and, sometimes through different periods in time. It's an escape certainly, but more than that, it's a voyage as seen through another's eyes. It often help us enjoy and love the different situations, people and places and cultures. It is amazing to read books written by authors from years and years ago.
People who love reading have a fixed time for reading in their busy routine. It helps them to relax and escape from the stress of our day-to-day lives. It can transport us to another time or place and it is a great feeling of seeing or doing or experiencing something different. People have special reading corner for themselves and some people give importance to reading in silence and have separate reading room and some people love to read with light music and even some people read before sleeping. Many people love reading in bathroom because they feel it is one of the few rooms in the home where privacy is routinely respected. A child may burst into a parent's bedroom unannounced, or a spouse may share time in a den or living room, but the bathroom is generally considered the home's Fortress of Solitude.
Reading Books has always had advantages to other things in life whether using internet or watching television. It also is the most common interest of the people who rise in life and the most important reason of success in the life of people.
