The Joy of Reading



A few weeks ago, Gulf News released their Ramadan special, asking their readers what books they wished to read and what they’d like to recommend to other people.

I was one of the featured readers and for someone who LOVES to read my excitement could barely be contained, just thinking of the bucket-load of books that I’d like to read. Not to mention the number of books that I’d want to recommend as well. I was excited while I was writing my answers. I was even more excited when I saw my face on the paper. (I was calm enough not to make a post about it).

Reading books and sharing what I’ve read are just some of the things that bring me joy and happiness.

As a child, books allowed me to discover worlds beyond my imagination. As an adult books allowed me to rediscover the joy that it brings to the child in me; it shaped my morals and way of living.

How about you? Do you like to read as well?
