A wonderful world of books

Author: admin |Fri, 06/12/2009

36 Our life is full of interesting information, but sometimes we are too busy to notice it, we are rushing at work in the morning, then, after work we are coming back home and have no more energy to do something. We are dreaming about spending time active way, about travelling, about adventures. But there is a wonderful way to have all this even when you are tired, back from the office and your body does not agree to do anything except lying comfortably, and your mind at the same time is ready to do more. You guessed what I mean; of course I mean a wonderful trip on the white pages of your favorite book. You can travel in a book world and get there all you need. Reading is a great hobby.

The book is the major source of the information, a huge ball of fire and a source of human pleasure. After all the book is an important source of "the deep information". Books acquaint us with different countries; tell about habits, qualities of other people. Due to it, we broad up the knowledge, we understand people better; we learn a lot of new, interesting to ourselves, so the book develops us and makes us better.

The book has one big feature: we talk to it, looking through pages; it makes us start mute dialogue with the author. Yes, a dialogue. The good book demands work of thought, consciousness and imagination.

But many people do not agree with it and consider that modern technologies can supersede the book and it is already no more required. And what for to read the book when there is a TV, radio, the Internet? They will tell us about everything, but with show. What for sitting hours and read a heap of books when it is possible to spend time pleasantly in front of TV? Is it now time for books to die?

No, the book will never die! The book cannot be superseded modern technologies, mass media. I consider that the book is of great importance in our life, nothing can replace or supersede it: neither the TV, nor the computer, radio. It plays huge role for the person. Thanks to the book the person develops himself, learns a life. The book helps to reduce not only physical sufferings, but also treats soul, especially now, during an epoch of crash of former ideals, during an epoch of uncertainty and the general decrease in morals in a society.

The book is not only a source of knowledge for me; it is a source of rich and inspiration, pleasure and rest.

It's a wonderful way of spending spare time.  «Books and friends should be few but good», says an English proverb. Except a living man there is nothing more wonderful than a book! The book is certainly one of the greatest inventions of man. It is a friend and a teacher. We learn many things by reading books. Books teach people to live. The book is a faithful friend. They form our values and our characters. It gives us an opportunity to imagine the future, to look into the past. One can learn a lot by reading books.

Many, many years ago a town crier ran through the streets and shouted out all the news. But now we live in the Atomic Age. Too many things happen too quickly for us to learn about them in the old-fashioned way. That is why we have to read more and more in order to find out what is happening in the world. Reading is rarely a waste of time. The process of reading demands lots of thinking on the part of the reader because reading exists not only for entertainment. When you are taken away by a thrilling plot and by author's vivid imagination or by his humorous remarks or by the way he portrays people, you can't help reading the book from cover to cover, when the life of a literary character is similar to yours, you take events described close to heart. If you feel that you lack information, knowledge, and words to express your opinions - read more! Thanks to books we can talk to people who lived in different countries and ages.

A book is one of the greatest wonders of the world. It gives you a unique chance to link up with authors who lived hundreds and thousands years ago. The book is a faithful and undemanding friend. It can be put aside and taken up again at any moment. Read more and you'll never be bored!
