3 Reasons Why You Should Read At Least 2 Books in a Year

23rd April is the World Book Day!

The power of books to advance individual fulfilment and to create social change is unequalled. Intimate and yet deeply social, books provide far-reaching forms of dialogue between individuals, within communities and across time.

As Malala Yousafzai, the Pakistani schoolgirl who was shot by the Taliban for attending classes, said in her speech at the United Nations:

‘Let us pick up our books and our pens. They are our most powerful weapons.’

World Book Day or World Book and Copyright Day (also known as International Day of the Book or World Book Days) is a yearly event on April 23rd, organized by the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO), to promote reading, publishing and copyright. In the United Kingdom, the day is recognized on the first Thursday in March.
World Book Day was celebrated for the first time on 23 April 1995.

We list down three points, why you should read at least two books in a year:

1) Books are your true friends, who are not going to leave you in your lifetime!
“There is no friend as loyal as a book.” Ernest Hemingway

2) Books are your true guides!
Mark Twain rightly said “Good friends, good books, and a sleepy conscience: this is the ideal life.”

3) Books bring you the creativity within you!
“If there's a book that you want to read, but it hasn't been written yet, then you must write it.”
Toni Morrison
