Whenever we come across successful people we find one quality similar in each one of them, and that quality is Reading. Even if you have read one good book in your life, you will know what it gives. It gives you incomparable pleasure.

While there is no doubt about the fact that it is a priceless activity, it has been observed in the recent time that the habit of reading has declined of late. One of the main causes of this decline is the growth of technology.

Books are the quietest and most constant of friends; they are the most accessible and wisest of counselors, and the most patient of teachers. – Charles W. Elio
