Books are a massive source of information; yes, we have heard that but never took it seriously! Because we couldn’t see what’s lying inside it, all due to our short-shortsightedness! For short-foresightedness, this is where books come. Books widen our scope and enrich students’ experience, increase knowledge, improve memory, and build more vocabulary.
Instead of losing our assets (time) into the hands of video games and television, we can utilize these books on our shelves. Not only will we pass our leisure time, but increase our intellectual power. Moreover, Books give us a lot of pleasure, and make our time, because they drown us into a distinctive world of imagination and improve our standard of living.
