Reading is not just about learning a certain skill.
Nor is it just about learning how to create prettier combination of words.
Reading is a form of communication which is in a higher rank than mere conversation.
Many successful people have shared the same kind of wisdom that if you want to become a kind of person you should try your best to spend time with this kind of people.
If you want to become someone with good manner, you should try to make friends with people who have good manner.
If you want to become someone learned, you should try to stay in touch with learned people.
If you want to become someone successful, you surely should communicate with those who are actually successful.
But unfortunately, outstanding people are usually far away from us. If you yourself are not outstanding enough, it's almost impossible for you to reach them.
And this is what reading is for. A book is the embodiment of a great mind. Through reading you can communicate with those great minds. And this kind of communication is beyond time and space.
Reading can bring you out of the cage of your daily life. It shows you new opportunities that you've never seen.
For a lot of people, this may be the only method to change their lives.
No matter how busy you are, don't forget to spare some time to do it.
If you don't find yourself time to read, you'll eventually find yourself without any time to live the life that you want to live.
