With the fast paced technological era, certain things have totally or is in the brink of getting diminished. One such thing is reading among school students. Nowadays students seem to be immersed in the latest gadgets and new and exciting games at the cost of their education. Reading used to be a hobby for many as people queued in libraries and bookshops to get their favourite books. Reading not only enhances ones speech, it also develops ones vocabulary and comprehension skills. Gone are the days when parents used to buy story books for their children and read bed time stories. Today, every member in each household carries a mobile phone. What baffles me is that once a flourishing hobby is slowly dying out. The reading culture needs to be maintained in order to have a more confident and a more knowledgeable society.
I, for one, fondly recall my high school days, where we would be consumed into reading books during library classes. Reading really helped me and I’m sure it will help everyone if all embrace this magnificent hobby.
