    You may just sit in your home and yet go anywhere and experiance
    different culture,different lifestyle and feel the emotions you
    had never got a chance to experiance, I think reading is the most wonderful thing of mankind, it can take you thousands of years back. Without reading I cannot imagine how we’ll be able to understand the world afterall our individual world is so small. Indeed reading has so much to offer to us. So let us enjoy reading and promote the habit of reading.
