Reading is the very basic foundation of learning. Without it is a failure to reach a goal. When people already knows how to read, some will make reading as a hobby, others will just read when necessary. But what about those who will just read because there is a picture on it.

You become the character. I did enjoy being Phileas Fogg and Pierre Aronnax. WE got to visit a lot of places and we didn't only fly. As professor Aronax I got to explore under water. No, I'm not nuts.

Reading used to be very important to me too. But i lost that. I really find easier doing other things, wich is a shame as i know that reading is such a great way to train your mind. I have to make myself read more like i used to.

Am glad you do care much in reading. It's a reason man fulfills a goal to achieve something through reading. Life is incomplete without it. Yes, nowadays we have several choices what we would like to read. From books, computers, newspaper, etc. and all of these helps us to improve ourselves and to enhance our knowledge. So, keep on reading make it as a hobby. Increasing success lies ahead! Thanks for sharing and share more as I love to read...

Verity, I have to tell you that reading has really been a way for me to keep my sanity over the last few years. My health is going downward, so to take my mind off that and other every day stuff I get involved in a romance novel. Most of the time I will read for 4-5 hours before even realising how much time has gone by. I would like to be able to sit and read all day and night, but my stomach would protest.lol I will read just about anything except horror.

Hello my friend! Thanks for sharing. I do really appreciate it. Am glad you also love reading and yes, reading helps us a lot likewise in digesting our mind and our souls. For me, life is incomplete without reading same perhaps with others and you. Ohh, don't worry if your stomach or belly protested you while reading, tell it not to protest cause reading is digesting. lol... Again, thank you so much.. share more as I love to hear!

Hello verity. Reading is important for me. Everyday I need to read books. I am student and it is necessary. I think reading book are need to all people as we are human who are always less of general knowledge so books are important. But nowadays people like to read books to look at the picture as you said because they just think books is nothing. For a student like me, book is my life. Its better if you make reading as your hobby. Happy reading. HAPPY LUCKY. **prettyhanan**
