Reading allows one to experience the multitudinous riches that life has to offer without leaving one’s home. It imparts important life lessons and ageless wisdom by allowing one to live vicariously through fictional characters. By seeing situations that parallel real life, one learns how mistakes are made and how virtue is practiced without having lived through these experiences him or herself. In addition to keeping me mentally agile, reading has directly impacted the way I approach new and old problems, situations and decisions.
