Books, our best friends!

Books are just pages of blank or written paper stapled,stuck or tied together. But what matters most is what the book is about. It could be a novel, story, documentary, comic book. In order to know what a book is about, firstly most of us look at the cover page and title. Imagine you were given a book with no title, nothing on the cover page, no illustrations or information, just a blank book. We could create our own masterpiece! – but wait! Now one needs to come up with an idea about what they will write in this book. You could use inspirations from other books , or spend a long time thinking and drafting your story or whatever it is you are writing.

Back to our selection of books. Next majority of us might turn the pages and read a bit of the book. If it's good , then you might take it. If you want to read a book that is lengthy ,or of another theme, try another book if this one does not suit your choice. Sometimes the book we want to read is not easily found, sometimes not found at all. But there's more to books than that!

What if you wanted to find an answer for some question or how to solve a puzzle? You could search it up on the Internet, ask someone for help ,or use the help of a book , or a 'guide' book. When you want to know how to cook something which is an ancient recipe , suppose a recipe your great- grandparents used to cook, which is not on the Internet, if its noted down somewhere , you could read it from that piece of paper or that cook book.

Try a geographical or historical book. You could learn so many things about different cultures and get to know so many exciting monuments and tourist attractions. You could also know about the terrain and climate of different places, the animals, birds , plants that are most commonly found there, if that place has plenty of any type of resource, and much more.

Other than a book, reading itself can introduce you to the world. Reading newspapers, magazines, and much more helps us to know about the world and changes in the evolving world. I remember reading kid's magazines and I still do! There are many activities , recipes, craft ideas, quizzes, riddles, stories, and much more fun stuff! Quiz, puzzle and riddle books are very fun if you want some tough activities to excercise your brain and improve your intelligence. The thing about riddles is that if you find a good one, and you want to solve it by yourself ,you would have to search and search for the answer if you don't know it. Sometimes the answer is so simple yet one may find it very difficult to find it out. But that's what makes books interesting , especially suspense books. A mysterical suspense book leaves you wondering about the twists and turns in the book and while you read it , creates a determinating feeling that you have to know how- and if - the mystery gets solved. Mostly these books are about detectives or crime based.

The more you read , the more knowledge you get.Reading helps us to strengthen our brain muscles and stimulates the brain, improves our imagination , focus, thinking ability, makes us more smart and intelligent. It has a numerous other benefits as well.

Not only that, but reading books is also a great way to keep yourself occupied when you feel bored sometimes or when you are free. Take a journal for instance, you could write about your day in it, or draw , or do anything you want. Reading just for pictures is a habit most of us come across , especially if we are still learning to read, or the book looks more fascinating with pictures. I still remember how much I used to enjoy looking at the picture books I had when I was very young. Just looking at them felt like as if I had been teleported to another world. Plus, it was much easier to understand what the story was about , though the dialogues were not easy to comprehend . My uncle tells us very fascinating stories and they are mostly about his travels. He also tells us adventure stories. Anyways, once I also made a picture book, the one which seems to move when you flip the pages. Still, reading is more time taking than looking at the book's pictures. But reading is reading, even if you just look at the pictures of the books!

Reading books that are the right ones helps us to become more intelligent, and makes us smart, know how to solve difficult problems or any puzzle , or know about different creatures and much more. Documentaries are something that help us know more about nature and the world around us. Comic books are a great choice if you feel like giggling. There are many to choose from. So, make reading a good practice .As Ernest Hemingway has quoted- " There is no friend as loyal as a book "
