I love books.Once i was addicted to them.But todays children are loosing that habit.They are not much into books.Instead they will do other things.I remember my parents telling me that books are the best companion specially if you are alone.Do you agree?Do you read books or given up that habit?

"Books are good friends" I agree with it.It helps you spend good quality time as well as provides you bulk of knowledge.If some one has this habit of reading books,it is really useful for him/her.As far as children are concern,they grows as we raise them.If you make them read books and visit libraries and other places often where you can easily have access to quality books,this habit will grow in them and they will be fond of reading as well.Children mostly do not like academic books but they do like drawings or comics books,So first develop interest in them,then it will not be hard for them to read.I am not into reading that much,I get bored of the same topic, but i like to read magazines,Or religious books.

iam very fond of reading children book stories.Books are best companion.I have read many books written by R.K.Narayanan.I like the simple way of his writings.My father reads a lot and he is 60 years now but he reads and keep update himself than anyone of us in our home.Nowdays i dont have much time to spare for reading i should say i have given up reading books..

Books are the best,no doubt.You are right that nowadays we read less because we get very little free time.Most of the time we are busy studying.

I have always enjoyed readin a good book. I believe that we should encourage our children to read as much as possible. I tell my children that books are great word windows. If you read a book it can show you a whole new world that you haven't seen before. It can enlighten you to things that you haven't thought of or seen before. In books you get more details then you would if you watch the story being told in a movie.
