I always have been an avid reader of publications. Whether they are books, magazines or of recent, blogs. I enjoy reading because it takes me to places I have never been, to people I have never met and to experiences I have never encountered yet. Reading has allowed me to grow as a person as ideas and perspectives develop as I continue reading. Apart from Buddhist books, I've been reading some children's story books too. I actually find them enjoyable. Contrary to the what others are saying, the plot could be simple but the characters and the words used are definitely remarkable. I have realized that reading children literature definitely helps one have a bigger vocabulary, increases one’s creativity and improves one's writing ability.
