Books Reading plays a major role in learning the four skills of a language.

As a result, they are also a source for understanding the history of any culture, war, or country, as well as all of its good and bad aspects. It means that the more you read, the more you will learn. So, develop your habit of reading in any form. It can be anything, like books, newspapers, magazines, printed media, and your school books.

How to develop our habits of reading books?

Reading has a variety of benefits, including improving our memory and vocabulary, helping us learn new things, and improving focus and concentration. Do we try to develop our habits of reading? Our reading habits develop in schools. It means we should try this habit of reading at school, but unfortunately, this never happens in our schools. In schools, the classroom is dominated by a teacher, and this is one-way traffic.

We ask the students to finish reading two pages, but more than 90% of the students don’t even try to read. They feel the burden of reading syllabus books. We should develop these habits of reading among students by providing literature of their interest. Teachers should give 25% of the class for this purpose. Try different methods; take the students to the library where they can read the literature of their interest, like reading comic books, stories, or newspapers. This should be started at the primary level in our schools.

Books can develop confidence in students.

“Books train your mind to imagine big things—Taylor Swift”

Reading books IMPROVES OUR CONFIDENCE because confidence comes from knowledge. We gain knowledge by reading books. When we read a book, we learn about the struggles and hardships of various characters. We relate those situations to the present and start imitating the characters in the story. Therefore, our confidence level increases. Sometimes we even relate those situations to our personal lives.

Understanding the situations of the characters in a book and how they overcome difficult times and challenges gives us courage and confidence to deal with our problems. A well-read person will always have more knowledge about various topics, which will equip that person better for social situations and for holding conversations with groups of people.

Books help us grow mentally and emotionally.

We read books to increase our knowledge, and knowledge always makes us psychologically strong. People are becoming mentally and emotionally weak due to the unwanted situations in their daily lives. Reading can expand our vocabulary and communication skills, which can help us interact better with people. Reading is an effective way of boosting our memory and enhancing our focus. Reading makes us empathetic. We understand people’s situations, and it has a strong impact on our capacity to have empathy with people. Reading makes us psychologically strong.

Reading books helps in our mental exercise.

Reading is great fun for many people, but some people also feel burdened if they are compelled to read books that are not in their interests. Reading also has many benefits for our mental health in the form of thinking and understanding. It helps to do mental exercise through words of a difficult level and sharpens the mind. It improves our brain functions after getting new information and analysing different words or sentences. Reading REDUCES stress in our minds and aids in the recovery from depression and anxiety.


Therefore, we can say that “Read to Learn” is the right tagline. The more books you read, the more you will excel in your life. This process will make you more comfortable with handling your intellectual zeal to learn. I have been teaching for a long time and put my maximum effort into convincing the students to focus more on reading in any form. So, we can say that books help increase our vocabulary, reduce stress and mental exercise, improve our personality, make our minds strong, develop confidence, and improve reading, writing, and speaking skills. Thus, in conclusion, we can excel in our lives after reading books. It means that books are an asset in our lives. Read the following BEST EVER BOOKS to excel in your life:
