Reading Books – A Hobby

There was a time, where book reading was a part of daily activity in everybodies life.It was a hobby. But now a days, people are getting more and more dependent on technology. Other than the academic books we are not finding time to read or even show interest in other books.

In those days, television, radio were the assets of the richest class and books were the only entertainment which served all the class. As people are getting more civilized, advanced in technology, they are not considering reading books as important.

All of us in this busy world should take little time to read books. There are different categories of books available, fiction, non-fiction, detective, comics, autobiography and many more…. We get know so many things by reading books. Autobiographies and biographies reveals the lives of many great people, which gives us inspiration to achieve something in life.

We should also make children start reading books at a very young age, which in turn improves their language skills and also creates interest in reading books. Nowadays children spend their maximum time watching television due to which they develop eye problems. Instead of which they should be encouraged to read books such as comics, story books etc….

Books takes us to a new world.Sometimes while reading books, we get involved so much that we start putting ourselves in those characters and in those situations, forgetting all the tensions and pressure of the real life…

Libraries are considered as the treasure house of knowledge, where you can access all categories of books in single place. Libraries are the only place which serves our needs.  But nowadays people are not finding enough time to visit libraries. Understanding these difficulties there are few libraries which delivers books of your choose to your doorstep.

    Such a good point. It is sad how often I ask people about whether they read the book that the movie or TV show they love was based on and they don’t even know there is a book.
    I love to read, and I read everyday to my son.
    A library delivering to your door sounds very handy :D

    yupp! Even I get disheartened sometimes that my daughter has not picked this habit. We used to read so many books, comics, but these days kids have so many options that allure them away.

    Thanks for visiting my blog!

    I agree so much with you on this. We read so many books when we were growing up. I am not sure about how much kids of this generation get involved in reading books, but certainly there are many other options of entertainment for them. It is very easy for them to resort to the other options rather than indulge in reading books. We should certainly take extra efforts to make them habitual to this activity. Reading books is not only beneficial but is the least harmful amongst the different forms of entertainment of this era.

    So true Roopa! Inculcating a love for books from a young age is very important especially now since there are so many other options for information and entertainment.

    I so agree with you. People have generally stopped exploring. I so rarely see people reading the newspaper or venturing to read books. There is a point that there are even more books being written today even though the readers of paperback have been decreasing!!

    Reading Books is an underrated hobby which does not get us credits from the educational system or at the workplace which is possibly why it is on the decline

    Cheers :)
