They give you hope and faith.

They help your imagination.

They educate you and increase your general knowledge.

They expand your vocabulary.

They stimulate your brain.

They give you an escape from everyday life.

They act as a guide, teacher and friend.

Reading is said to delay or prevent the onset of dementia.

Words feed your brain, gives life to your mind.
