Reading beyond Text Books

Reading beyond Text Books

There is an old adage which says, “Books are man’s best friends.” Give it a thought and you will discover that books are the most tangible and valuable record of our world. The 21st century may be the age of the internet with the youth being constantly hooked to it. But it has and will never be able to replace the everlasting importance of books.

The thing to lament today is not being addicted to the internet but the decline in the reading habits among the youngsters beyond their prescribed text books. They crib about the lack of time or their hectic busy schedule but they fail to realize that they are endangering their creativity and imagination in the process. In fact, while writing an essay of hundred words you need information and this comes by reading books.

Anything you see around would not have existed without books, either religiously or scientifically. Books help people learn and are easier to carry around. A wonderful thing about a book is that you can take it to bed with you. It is more friendly and healthier to your eyes than the rays coming out from a PC, Laptop or Pocket PC.

What is so important about every book written is the knowledge contained within it. Books have the power to give inspiration by merely reading it. Never underestimate the amount of different things that can be derived from books. You can read anything including encyclopedias, novels, dailies, magazines.

History tells you about the past so we may learn from it, science gives you knowledge to create new things with it, novels stir the imagination and management books teaches you how to balance work and life.

MBA education scores here as it propels an aspirant to amass wide knowledge beyond the curriculum giving them case studies to excel their managerial skills. It widens your horizon and changes your entire DNA towards life approach.

Reading enables the mind to think over objects of interest, which enable a person in making informed decisions, its food for the soul, for it nourishes the human intellect in probing things deeper, analyzing things, and provide guidance to people, to instances they have not yet been exposed to life.

It grooms your overall personality. You get the confidence to interact with others which makes you stand apart. Reading keeps your brain working and keeps you up to date with language and modern vocabulary. It expands your imagination and your knowledge.

For many people books are an outlet from the hustle-bustle of daily life. Books have the power to make time stand still, retreat or fly into the future. Reading books has many benefits both mentally and morally. It is a great way to de-stress and just unwind.

Some of the benefits of reading books are:

  • Gaining a firmer grasp of language,
  • Giving wings to your imagination
  • The incredible depths that books can take you into no other form of entertainment or information can do
  • It enables us to understand other cultures, which in turn enables us to relate better with our surroundings.
  • Books can have a profound effect on society and the world because they enable an individual to change outlook. 

Reading is one of the best hobbies a person should have. In this world of competitiveness, it's always advantageous to amass vast knowledge, and there is no better way to do so, other than reading. So it's high time you find a cure for fear of books, especially something beyond your prescribed text books. Go an inch extra and feel the difference.

“The more you read, the more you know
the more you know, the smarter you grow
the smarter you grow, the stronger your voice
when you speak your voice you make it heard.”
