Reading books is an excellent culture to cultivate; it keeps you informed, busy, and entertained.
It is said that the most intelligent people spend most of their time on books and not watching television.

Some people are very passionate about book-reading out there; most of them own tons of books, are signed up to book clubs, and consider reading diary therapeutic.
