The only true friend of a human being is a book.

Because with the others, you may doubt dishonesty, but a book won't ever betray you. Whatever it has to tell you, is either the truth no matter how egregious it might be or the fictions. Well, they are merely innocuous lies that enthrall people.

The noteworthiness of the contribution of books has in our lives. The act of reading is remunerative in physical ways also, not to mention the contribution of varieties of books for the amelioration of our intellect.

By being an effective reader,  we elucidate ourselves to others. Thus, reading upgrades communication. The paramount purpose of reading is to connect the outlook of the book to our point of view on any arbitrary topic. The more erstwhile apprehension you have about any subject, the more easy-breezy will it seem to you to read about it.

But why is reading important?

Simple. We are living in a world where every day our proficiency in converging our attention on any particular thing for a sizeable period is dwindling, thanks to all the forms of communication technology. But we have to buck the trend. And the occupants of all those libraries, big and small scattered out there will be the stellar helpers.

Speaking about the benefits:

- Revamps vocabulary and writing skills
Every book is presented exclusively, be it the narrating approach or the choice of words. We learn common synonyms of lucid words and the methodology of implementing them in sentences that help us to communicate better and create manner. Interacting with rarely heard words creates an excellent impression in specific professional fields.

Work out for the brain
When we fasten our minds on the plot or the words, the part of our brain that is accountable for analysis and concentration gets triggered. That fine-tunes our brain.

- Promotes mental health
Reading can fight depression, lower stress levels, or ward off dysthymia (persistent depressive disorder).

- It amplifies memory and helps build focus.
Books act as stimuli to the part of our brain associated with memory and attention and also, our focus is exercised.

- Enhances imagination, creativity levels, empathy and promotes broad-mindedness.
The more we read, the more we learn, which expands our minds to discover life anew. We try to visualize through words that invigorates our imagination.

Entertainment and relaxation
A good book at the end of a bustling day is bound to boost our endorphin levels and is a great form of recreation.

- Builds self-esteem
When you have more knowledge, your self-esteem automatically gets a pump. You can be confident while being a part of any discussion, normal or controversial, and that augments yourself confidence.

- Motivates
When you swim in a sea of despair, reading autobiographies or any such inspirational book will drive you, stop you from losing hope and give you inner peace.

Books are the key ingredient to a healthy lifestyle. Once you fall in love with reading, books are never going to let you down. Every genre of books has a unique positive aspect. So don't be choosy and grab a book to read this night itself!

Reading is very important for a person's mental development, communication, the ability to understand not only other people but also ourselves. I recommend visiting a very important educational resource, where I try to write a lot of training materials for students. Reading books is not only about getting the information we need or having fun but also about our mental and intellectual development. It forces the human brain to work, to process the received information, establishing neural connections, in other words - to learn, and thus to develop.
