Reading is to the mind what exercise is to the body.
Sir Richard Steele
Reading is so important. It is not only an exercise that will bring you advantages, it is also damn enjoyable. Be it educative information or just a novel, you should always read at least one good book! But reading is even more.
How many a man has dated a new era in his life from the reading of a book.
Henry David Thoreau
Think about how books have defined you in the past. Think about books that really changed you, books that really got under your skin. Those books are to be honoured and they are to be found so you must never stop reading everyday! There are enough awesome books to give you more than a lifetime of enjoyable reading time.
Reading will not only give you joy and pleasure but a great advantage in life experience. Yes, making own experiences is worth infinitively more, but you can not experience more than a lifetime by that. Books enhance your experience in a pretty fast time and give you much information you would have never found out yourself.
