Why you should read books?

Nowadays, teenagers have changed in comparison with the teens in the past, taking into account eating habits, an active way of life, spending free time and clothes. We are a "technology" generation. But, despite all aspects mentioned, reading holds an important place in our life.

In terms of fiction or non-fiction, there are endless stories that can both broaden our understanding of the world or help us get through a sticking point in our life. Books are like those good friends who have passed through our lives and have left something nice that we can enjoy every day. Books are those friends who give us dozens of reasons to smile. Books make us more compassionate. Books give us wings. Books teach us to love without asking anything in return. Books provide knowledge and give us an opportunity to learn about ourselves and our surroundings.
