    Most of the successful people are into reading. So, people who reads are more likely to be successful. I personally love reading good books it offers exposure to perspectives different from my own.

    It is sad that today’s society has a very poor reading culture. We should go back to the old ways.

    The importance of books in shaping who we become can’t be overstated. Books hide a treasure trove of knowledge.

    I don’t completely agree with this. Sometimes intellect doesn’t come from books.
