Reading books has many benefits both mentally and morally. Firstly, your mind will be active and engaged into old age, and reading can help you forget the problems in your life, and get you captivated by the adventures of someone else. Reading from child also helps set a good, mentally engaging example for the new generation. And reading has benefits that can help with everyday activities. With more reading comes better reading skills, thus allowing easier comprehension of, oh, say, instructions on how to build something or warnings on chemicals. Reading is a fun and great way to leave the stresses of your life and just unwind.
