Pleasures of reading are pleasures forever. One who enjoys pleasures of reading needs no other pleasure. One who is the friend of books needs no other friend. Books are our nearest and dearest friends. They are our kith and kin. There is nothing superior to the pleasures of reading, whether a person is young or old.
Milton said, "A book is a bloodless substitute of man". Reading of books broadens the horizon of our knowledge and deepens our outlook on life. It eliminates our narrow prejudices and illumines our minds with truth and knowledge. Books make a lasting impression on our minds.
It is through books that we become acquainted with great minds.
Reading is the best means of spending your leisure time.
Books alone are dependable when all other friends become undependable. They give us the best company at home and our fellow travellers on our journeys at home and abroad.
"A good book", said Milton rightly, "is the precious life blood of a master spirit embalmed and treasured upon purpose to a life beyond life."
