Reading is an art that has existed from the beginning of man.starting from the reading of signs,to the time when men began to carve on stones and parched scrolls When men began to increase ,communication became extremely important for people to interact and pass information.i doubt if we would have got this far in civilization if not for the dogged efforts of ancient readers,who were able to extract information from ancient carvings,and parched rolls.science,relationships,commerce and all of man’s activities today would not have advanced.

“A reader lives a thousand lives before he dies, said Jojen. The man who never reads lives only one.”
George R.R. Martin, A Dance with Dragon

below are five reasons you should keep reading..

A. FUN:

“I declare after all there is no enjoyment like reading! How much sooner one tires of any thing than of a book! — When I have a house of my own, I shall be miserable if I have not an excellent library.”
Jane Austen, Pride and Prejudic

First of all, reading is fun. With the large variety of genres, there’s something for everyone. Fancy some action? A drama in which you can find characters to identify with, because you feel sad and lonely? Something more down-to-earth, like a reportage about a country or a historical period you’re interested in? Just find the right shelf at the library

B. DEVELOPING YOUR PERSONALITY :

“Think before you speak. Read before you think.”
Fran Lebowitz, The Fran Lebowitz Reader

Personality is not something you are born and blessed or cursed with forever, till the end of your days. Yes, there are tendencies hard to get rid of, patterns being repeated, mistakes we just can’t help but making all over again. But can’t we, really?

Through working on ourselves, we can change things. One of the methods is reading. According to studies made by researchers from University of Toronto, reading can change some personality traits. Romance novels, for example, are likely to promote empathy. Not only romance novels though. Reading any artistic literature can make people more empathetic and understanding , because the process itself is like a conversation, getting to know a person. It also encourages readers to examine their own emotions and behaviors and makes them more open to new experiences.

 C. Effect on relationships

“Never trust anyone who has not brought a book with them.”
Lemony Snicket, Horseradish: Bitter Truths You Can’t Avoid

Through reading we get to know countless characters. We get inside of their lives, follow their stories, see the places they have seen, experience what they have exparienced. Articles on people from faraway countries makes you more tolerant towards other cultures, psychological novels- more understanding in the contacts with people from your enivornment. A reader won’t judge another person easily. A reader knows there’s always more to people than what the first page shows.

If used well, reading can also help you in developing your expressiveness. By accompanying characters in their lives, you get familiar with their feelings and emotions and see it’s not such a shame to have them. That makes it easier to speak freely.

Moreover, hobbies get people together. Books or magazines you read equip you with subjects to discuss when meeting people. Visiting book clubs and libraries, joining online communities, even reading on trams or buses gives you a chance to make new friends and share this interest with them.

D. Inspiration :Fictional characters can be a source of inspiration just like people met in the real life. You can learn from them, get influenced by their words and actions. Same with places, events and facts described in what you read. Let’s say you come across a book on Japanese culture or a novel with a main character who is a carpenter. Next day you might find yourself studying Japanese or making wooden chairs for your kitchen.

Finally,   with the advent of mobile devices,we spend less time on books.the kids no longer play folklores and kid games.computer gaming has taken over. The further we advance,the farther we move from the reading culture. i can never forget the rich “booky” scent that fills me up each time i open a new book.it thrills to read and flip the pages..to have that sense of satisfaction when you finally flip the last page.

We spend our days doing so many things at the same time. Laptop in front of your eyes with an adorable cat jumping all around the screen, messages from friends popping out from different places – emails, chats, Skype, perhaps a phone too, a coworker speaking on the other side of the room, all the papers on your desk glancing at you and reminding they need to be filled in… Reading requires concentration. You do one thing only. Many people, even if they want to, can’t concentrate anymore. Reading is a great way to work on your ability to concentrate, which increases productivity. we should re-introduce the reading culture,and encourage scholars to keep on reading. Spelling bees,scholarships and other gratifications should be   brought back.
