In a world where computers control everything, reading the book has gone far to the back burner. Modern people, most often, consider reading books a relic of the past. All the necessary information is on the net, classical works can be seen in the film adaptation. So why spend a huge part of your life reading books? But, we forget that reading, like a physical process, gives us a lot of things that modern gadgets can not offer. When reading books, we come across unfamiliar words for us, but we do not look for their meaning immediately in the dictionary, we guess by the content of the text. That is why reading books increases not only our general vocabulary, but also general literacy. Our speech, eloquence, and general interpersonal skills are developing. Creative people can immediately take some ideas for their creativity. Where from? Of course, from books. Reading is also useful in that it improves concentration. When we read a book, we turn off our hearing and brain from extraneous noise, we concentrate on the book. This skill will be useful to us in any other activity. It has long been proven that the human body grows old when the brain ages. And by reading books we make our brain constantly be in a tonus, develop, thereby pushing back the aging process.
