Value of reading

Reading is one of the most beneficial hobbies. It is through reading that a person can discover new ideas, concepts, places and people. Some people describe reading as a journey that starts with the opening of a page and ends when the last page is turned. Reading is relaxing and it improves our thinking process. Reading is a popular hobby among many people because it gives knowledge and pleasure. In modern society, people don’t have enough time to read because of a busy life. We get pleasure by reading novels and short stories. We can learn good qualities of great persons by reading their biographies. “Reading maketh a full man” Francis Bacon said. There is truth in this great saying. Reading helps us to acquire knowledge on many subjects. Apart from that we can get mental satisfaction from reading.
