I can assure you about these benefits because I have had an unforgettable experience in my life; how do I lose my mind while reading a book.
I still remember that day, I was in the living room reading an e-book. My surrounding suddenly became so calm. I do not focus on the things that happened around me. And I just continuously read the book. After a couple of minutes, I finished it and take off my eyes from my mobile. I was shocked by the sight when I raised my head. The first thing that came into my mind was, why there is anything special today? I was like a person who lost his mind.
Everyone in the house sat around me and looked at me like a ghost. Most importantly, our neighbors were watching me from the doorway. As soon as I met my mother’s face, I felt that I was done today. In the midst of it all, my stupid brother filmed me with a stupid laugh on his face. But I forgot to fight with him when they show me that clip.
Firstly there was a tiny smile, but gradually it becomes a louder laugh. I laugh like crazy. After that, I started to learn about how to control emotions without stopping reading books.
9. It can make us more inspirational / motivational

I have a collection of books written about inspiration and motivation. They helped me a lot with the problems I have to face in the real world.
10. Reading makes you a great communicator
At the moment, I started to write this article, my friend made a sudden visit. During our talk, he told me about a book he had read recently. Our conversation, which began there, ended just moments before he was about to leave. I think during our talk we spent about 1 hour talking about that.
When you become a reader, you always have something new or something that interesting with you.
If you did not believe me, just find someone who is addicted to reading books. Even if they do not want to talk much, when they start to talk they never ended the conversation so easily.
11. Ability to understand a person / emotions
What if you only know about smiling means a happy mood and crying means a sad mood? Can you understand another person even if they cry for happiness or make a smile while they are in a sad mood or express any other emotion?
The habit of reading opens your mind to understand about emotions and also people. As it provides you a great opportunity to learn about emotions and characteristics of people.
12. Can make fun / fix the mood
Try to read something fun when you are sad or try to distract your mood from a bad feeling you had. It probably fixes your mood.
Sometimes I wanted to be a bookmark.
It seems like it’s out of the title. But the bookworm in our gang always repeated to herself whenever we visited a library for our research.
Why do I want to be a bookmark?
The first thing is because of the bond between reading and keeping bookmarks. Sometimes, even if I am so busy reading, sudden things come up to make it a stop. In the beginning, I used to remember the last page, and it read before leaving.
It is very struggling to remember a page number if you have not had time to read it for a long period. Sometimes the number is in the mind but not the correct one. Stop being so struggling when wanted to hold the book for a while because of sudden things or due to anything. Made a new habit of keeping bookmarks.
Even though you are also a bookmark lover, keep it in your mind, ‘Bookmarks won’t valuable until we make the books more valuable.
The books do not want to be kept like caged animals nor something that should be kept as a display item without gaining benefits. Try to read books and become a knowledgeable and perfect person. Reading improves varieties of skills. Not only for children; its skilled vocabulary, fluency, understanding, comprehension.
Welcome you to take the key (reading) to open a new knowledgeable era by being a perfect person.
