“The man who does not read has no advantage over the man who cant read.” -Mark Twain.
I often wonder, “Why is reading important?”. I’m sure everyone must have been thinking about these questions because, in today’s time, people prefer to watch or listen. The youth of this generation have an interest in reading books, but they mostly prefer to listen to an audiobook. Reading important to our brain, just like exercise, is essential to our body.
Reading improves your focus and concentration. Reading, much like running or listening to music, can be a form of meditation. With all the distractions nowadays, people have huge problems with concentrating. This type of behavior causes stress levels to rise and lowers our productivity. When you read a book, all of your attention is focused on the story. The rest of the world fades, and you endorse yourself in every sufficient detail you are absorbing. Your brain needs movement, just like your body and reading is the best workout for your mind. You should find time for your brain activity and read often. If you are wondering where to start, then I have listed some of the famous books that are best for you.
