“I owe everything good to the book,” Maxim Gorky said. I completely agree with him. I believe that books play a very important role in a person’s life. And now I will try to prove it.
First, how do you even imagine life without books? This is boring and uninteresting! How sometimes it’s disgusting to look at the crook who spend days on end sitting at computers and televisions. What is the use of them? A book is the key to knowledge. Reading, you will learn many new and useful things for yourself. Even the ancient people said: “People stop thinking when they stop reading.”
Secondly, the book develops horizons. It’s so interesting to look into it and see the past: battles, kings, knight tournaments, hikes, wars, geographic and scientific
Third, the book develops thinking and fantasy. How cool sometimes it is to imagine yourself as a Greek hero or a scientist who is about to open a new law of physics, a pharaoh or queen of Egypt! Mentally visit other countries and cities, imagine and find yourself in a Catholic church, a Protestant church or an Orthodox cathedral.
Fourth, books help us make the right decisions. Sometimes, looking at the characters of the book, we learn ourselves or our friends, we learn from other people’s mistakes and try not to let them.
Fifth, reading any work, we become more literate, both in oral and in written speech. We replenish our vocabulary, thereby making ourselves more interesting person.
But we must not forget that books should be read intended for their age. It’s silly if at sixteen years a person reads fairy tales of “Kolobok” and “Kurochka Rjaba”, and a five-year-old mother reads Tolstoy’s “War and Peace” for the night.
I believe that I was able to convince you that books are valuable things, they are necessary for people and play an important role in a person’s life, because they teach us, give advice, with books we grow up and know the world.
