Every time I pick a book to read, I know someone or the other thinks it’s just a waste of time thinking being a reader is just my way of being disconnected when a lot is happening in the world. These people disappoint me. I feel pity for them, for their no matter how witty they think they are, their wit fails to understand a simple fact that reading literature is as important as breathing for any living organism. Reading literature is not a waste of time but experiencing a variety of things in lesser time.
Each book gives an individual an access to variety of emotions, events and situations that even for a witty mind, it will take decades to experience all that when one can experience over a short period of time by reading books. It’s more like a reality simulator.
