Reading is very important for any person. But for a writer, it is very very important. Everyone knows that reading is a good habit. This habit should be there even from childhood. This habit develops a person mentally, physically and socially.
Reading helps us in many different ways. When we read newspaper in the morning, we come across many new words which we can use in our day-to-day life. It(reading newspaper) also increases our word power. Through reading newspaper, we come across new words and increase vocabulary and also at the same time we get to know new information or more information from all over the world and nearby.
Reading, whether a book, magazine or newspaper, helps us in developing our interests in many different things.
Reading helps in developing our power of imagination. When we read any fiction book or other such book, there we find things or incidents which can happen only in imagination and not in reality.
Through reading, we get experience without our real involvement. When we read a story or any book, the emotions there-in evokes the same emotion in us. We experience the emotion of love, joy, sorrow, death, mystery, fear, through reading without being actually a part of the incident.
When we read something, we get a topic to talk about. We can talk about the little things we found from the book.
Our day-to-day life is a routine life. From this mundane life, there is no escape. This is the real world. But reading can help us escape from the mundane world. It is an escape into the world of possibilities, opinions.
Reading is what differentiates human beings from animals. Human beings have brain power. We have the power to read. But animals cannot read.
Reading books can be beneficial. It is a good habit. Books are the record of the wise men’s thought, discovery, sight, hearing. Like the quote:”You have to dream before your dreams can come true”.
Through reading, we get new ideas and information, like new technologies. We are getting informed frequently through reading about the changing technologies like earlier, we could not even get the opportunity to talk with persons who were far distant from us. But through advanced technology now-a-days, we can not only talk with persons in phone but also we can video-chat with them. We are frequently getting informed about the fast changing technology only through reading.
“Books are the quietest and most constant of friends, they are the most accessible and wisest of counsellors, and the most patient of teachers”- Charles William Eliot
