Reading books not just a behavior to kill your free times, but also the tool that make you realize of yourself, everyone and everything around you and also give you some tips to improve your day-to-day life better.
Reading books it doesn’t mean that you’re stupid or lack of knowledge, it is a good behavior and knowing yourself, and which position you are at.
Some people they don’t like to read the books and claim they know everything. Some believes that reading is nothing, but action is something that should have done. Some believes that reading is just a behavior to show people around you that you’re high educated person. Honestly, reading should have bounded with action. However, there would no right action if you don’t read.
