I love the crispy feeling of pages I turned, the fresh smell of ink from the print. Walking in between library shelves was sweet, then I realised the importance of books once again when my books started talking about me in the cupboard.
My early childhood life is with books. Hundreds of books I already read till today. Books are always with me. Books are like friends to me. I am a habitual reader and I don’t feel complete without books.
Slowly I am going away from my books because I am busy with work. From the last few years, I was only able to spend less time with books. I loved my books.
One evening I was sitting in the room and thinking about business. Suddenly I heard communication of my books in a cupboard. In the first feel, I ignored the sounds. I had never imagined such things. It was scary! I was quiet and tried to listen to what they were talking about? I’d never heard them before.
Oh my God! They were talking about me.
They were in grief because of me. I hadn’t opened and read any one of these in a while. They were missing me. I opened the cupboard and they fell on me. They were showing great love for me. They were looking to hug me like cucumber plants climbing on trees. They were a little dusty so first I removed the dust from them. Then I hugged them. I started feeling the fragrance of books. That was amazing.
I closed my eyes and then we started to talk. They asked me why I was not reading them. “Why did you forget our love?” they said to me. They were showing anger and felt very sad. I was not able to speak. So, we both were silent.
Then I talked about my situation and problem with them. Books treated me like a kid and inspired me to read again. They memorize my childhood time I spend with them. I got a few lessons from books that I am definitely going to include in my business, career and daily schedule. I promised books that I am going to read them daily. I also promised that I will add more members in your family. I promised that I will be going to suggest others to read books daily and make reading one of their habits.
So, finally I told them that I didn’t neglect them but I had upgraded to pixel; with eBooks. We will be lovers always. My books smiled and I felt the amazing holy power inside me. It was never there before this incident. These eBooks told me some lessons about the importance and benefits that I am now sharing with you.
1. E-books give us more data, information, and knowledge.
Books told me that habits of reading daily help you to get more information and data. That combination of data and information will give you the knowledge that you can use in your business and career. Whatever you read daily, it will keep updating the knowledge inside you. That’s why reading books is a really important source of knowledge and that helps you become successful in any field you’re working on.
2. E-books help us to become Rich in life.
Books told me that because of us, many people are rich; some by reading books and some by writing. Thousands of bookstores or eBook selling websites and their families rely on us. Many writers still create new family members. E-Books are our new generation. Blogs and articles are part of our family. Whether you like to read in print form or like to read on Kindle, FunDza, Wattpad, that’s OK! I was fully convinced that there are thousands of writers writing books and billions of people reading them. That’s the power of books. And now I think you also start realizing the importance of books in life.
3. Reading books is important to achieve goals in life.
Books align your brain in the direction of your goals in life. It’s common that in the virtual world there are various types of information that our brains are eating daily. Some information makes you negative and some will distract you from your goals. When you start reading good books related to your career or business or goals, they will align your brain by positive vibes. Reading motivational books helps and increases focus. And focus and confidence helps in career development and to achieve goals in life.
4. Books are important to reduce stress.
Whenever you’re looking for peace of mind and silence, then start reading your favourite books and it will immediately remove the stress. Whether it’s deadline pressure, stress in a relationship or any kind. It is because you’re learning and diving into the thoughts of writers. Writers have different mental levels and a different method of thinking for the same reason. They share it in form of books, articles or banners and it enables your brain to think differently.
5. Books guide, teach and share our pain like a good friend
E-books play a big role as a friend of a human being. Whenever you feel alone and dominated, get a book and start learning. It will immediately start communicating with you. If you’re sad, they will make you happy and give some compassion. Whenever we look for guides or teachers, books helps us. Books are really a companion for a human.
6. Reading books improves our vocabulary
Books improve our communication skills. Books help us to express thoughts in a speech that requires lots of words in the vocabulary. The more we read the more new words our brain start gaining and adding to the vocabulary folder. It will help you when you start talking or writing. You will never feel the shortage of words in your brain whenever you need to write, speak and debate.
7. Books are important to read to get success in career
Creativity, imagination, and thinking play a great role in our career. Creativity is really important; to be known as different. Doing something differently explores our imagination and we start thinking deep (critical, analytical). This is not possible without reading and learning.
In books, nobles, and articles, writers open the creative doors of your brain. The words and images of writers start reflecting in us. Every new line will take us to the world of imagination. That’s the focus of many writers. Because imagination is more powerful than knowledge. Enjoy making hope happen with eBooks
