Reading is not a cup of tea for everyone. But there are many benefits of reading not known to everyone. Many people don’t like to read books. Like many people on the planet, I also didn’t like reading books in my school and college days. I always thought about how people read other books when they have a lot in their course. My mind never understands, why people are discussing books.
How do I start reading books?
Anyone can start reading at any time, any age. There is no time and age limitation. It can happen suddenly and you will start loving reading books. There is no thrilling story behind my reading habit. It is very simple, I found an old book in my office (without any owner), every day I saw it. The book named <;“ Dhanda: How Gujratis do Business”</a>. One day I ask everyone about the book but it belongs to no one. So I took the book and start reading on a bus while returning home. The book is so well written, and keep interested in it and start reading the book.
