Most of us want to grow, connect and keep learning. There are many ways to achieve this. For example, by taking a course, hiring a mentor or getting enlightenment.
However, it is not easy for many of us to follow along these methods. Reason being it seems like too much work or sometimes it is costly.
Yes, we refrain from spending money on our self growth. That is a shame.
Don’t worry, I got you covered. Here are 5 reasons to read a book.
1. Gain Lifetime Of Knowledge
When you read a book, you are not just gaining some random information (sometimes it can be). Most of the times it would be the lifelong lessons learnt by that author.
His/her’s mistakes, success stories and guidance will act as a blueprint for you through the book.
The only roadblock is you. Don’t let the limit of your thinking stop you. Don’t just read the book and start another one.
Implement it’s lessons one at a time and resume reading. This way you will get the highest ROI of your reading. Self investment has the secured growth rate.
2. Say No To Electronic Troubles
We get disturbed nowadays with the exposure to mobile phones, internet and cable tv. Traditional activities like sports, spending time with family and going outdoor have taken a setback.Too much of anything is not good #Book Click To Tweet
Break your habit by starting to read a book in a month. Make yourself more relaxed. Having a book by your bed won’t be as bad as having mobile phone along with you.
3. Don’t Be Afraid To Travel Alone
Being alone on the travel is the biggest sin when you find yourself struggling to spend time. Most of us listen to songs and then try to chat with strangers.
That is good, except for one thing. Not all of us are good in these social skills.
For many of us, having few books to read will help us pass time like a no brainer. As it is rightly said, “A book is man’s best friend.”
4. Enhance Your Vocabulary
Most of the new generations authors use simple words to connect easily with the audience. However classic novels have the vocabulary which will make you twist your tongue and plot to make you stick till the end.

When I read it in my 16 years younger self, I was able to talk more confidently and had the more vocabulary with me.
The reason is simple, by reading I was talking to each characters in my mind. What could be more awesome is this…

James Cameron was a truck driver and learnt the editing skills by reading from library. Now he is the perfectionist director.
You can learn, connect with your passion and find yourself in life simply by spending meager $10 on a book.
This will be the best investment of your life. If you don’t do it now, you will definitely regret. Start now.
To read a book, one has to do very little. The returns are magnificent. If you are still not convinced, I don’t know what will.
