Reading: Forgotten Pleasure?
Everybody knows that a book is the most important way of getting knowledge. But is that all? No, it isn't! Literature is the greatest simulator - a machine that puts us through infinitely many situations and gives us an access to a range of emotions that we can hardly ever witness. A book allows us to consider the consequences of our actions and shows us examples of generous and sympathetic people. A book also teaches us not to be afraid of problems and solve them. Writers open our hearts and minds, and give us keys to ourselves. With a book we learn to think and analyze. A book is a medicine for our soul, and it is a great pleasure. A book teaches us to be humane.
Nevertheless, reading becomes a forgotten pleasure. A lot of people can do without books nowadays. Some people say that they have no time for reading. Others believe that we can find all information on the Internet. People would rather watch a film than read a book because it is easier to do it. However, I think that none of the films can be compared with a book.
A person is the one who develops spiritually, the one who develops his soul, and this is done with the help of books.
Fortunately, there are people who can’t live without books. Therefore, they can find themselves in a wonderful world that a book creates. A person who reads and likes reading is a happy person.
