Do we really know the importance of reading? Some of us might love it or hate reading. Since I was a child my wildest dream was to be locked up in a library and read all day. Everyone has a choice is either to be hooked up on books or T.V or internet.
I bet you’re wondering , why do I love books so much. It’s because it gives you knowledge and above all let you enter a new world. Especially books without pictures, makes you use your imagination.
My life in writing stories were inspired by the books i’ve read. Some might say that it’s more boring than watching a good movie on T.V. It’s not if you know how to choose the right one to read.
For some culture , the children are used to be read to , before going to bed. Some are still very young. Even if they don’t understand it yet. When they get older, they’ll have the habit of picking out a book and read to themselves.
For us Malagasy people, I can tell you that we have great authors. I’ve read alot of malagasy books, not just tales but stories. I loved it. Why can’t we read to our children every night before they go to bed? All of you will say that : ” We’re tired from work and no time or no book to read.” . I’ll answer you by saying that there’s time for everything, and reading is very relaxing and we have alot of book shops here.It won’t hurt to give it a try.
Why not give a book as a birthday present. It would be something different. It’s up to you , to convince the person to read a book.
When I say read a book, I don’t mean only stories. Read newspaper,magazine, encyclopedias ….. etc
For me personally, I can’t live without reading a book.
Choice the right book to read and you won’t regret it!!!!!!
