Reading brings joy, pleasure and happiness to our lives, and you don’t have to depend on someone else to be happy. If you are a book lover, you are never really alone! You can always have a friend in the form of a book. Books don’t complain, don’t have any demands and stay with you no matter what. Carry them wherever you want and read them whenever you want.
