Why Should We Read Books?

Every good book is a new experience and connects with smart minds; the greatest minds that are pushing the reader to think about things that he did not think about, nor had any knowledge of before. The reader also finds solutions to situations and life problems through books. A good book will provide answers to questions and engage the mind in amazing ways.

What Should We Read and How?

Reading books is useful at different stages of life, and what we read is important. Light entertaining readings will play a role in self-entertainment, passing time or just entertain curiosity, but if we read some of the masterpieces of classical literature and the productions of human thought, we get used to it and cannot quit easily. Cultural and historical books increase our knowledge, and we may take lessons from them to build our present and future.

Reading Scientific Books

Reading scientific books about the beginning of the universe and the solar system leads to the expansion of our perception and imagination. It improves our perceptions and understanding of the laws of nature.

Reading Biographies

Reading biographies and personal memoirs allow us to see a summary of the life experiences of interesting figures that have contributed to or witnessed history. We can certainly benefit from their life experiences, which may benefit us in the future.

Reading Valuable Books

Reading valuable books, whether the specialized or cultural public is indispensable for everyone who knows the value of the great human heritage in science and culture. A person who does not read lives only lives one life, but who knows the experiences of others lives many lives.

The New Generation

While the popularity of books in the West is still high, it has fallen considerably since the advent of the Internet. The new generation around the world is looking for other alternatives to the book through blogs, forums, and social networking sites. But nothing can substitute for good books. The cultural level of society is determined not only by the prevalence of the culture of reading in it, or by the average number of books the citizen reads annually, but also by the availability of freedom of expression.

Experts recommend spending two hours a day to read good literary books; they are convinced that the books are better than movies. Reading the authors’ books, which are beautiful in language, improves and develops man’s linguistic abilities, helps him express himself better and makes him a more interesting speaker in the eyes of others.

Scientists say: People are in two categories: those who read books, and those who listen to those who read. People speak the best when they memorize, memorize the best when they write, and write the best when they hear.

Of course, human culture does not depend on how much is read, but on the number of good books that one understands and benefits from in his life.

“The more people read, the less they become more like others.”
