Books has been a integral part of every ones life. Generation after generation have lived with books. Present day youth have shied away from books.There can be many reasons for this behavior. Mostly today's youth live a life on fast lane, where everything is instantaneous. They consider reading book a waste of time.
However at the same time there are some book lovers too. These people are looked down as nerds. This is because of their reclusive behavior. In past people who were called as book worms mingled in society. Now the so called nerds don't want to mix with people. This type of behavior triggers teasing or bullying from their peers. To overcome this one has to balance their interests. They should be able to make and hold good conversation among friends. This will help them to overcome bullying.
Book reading is one of the best hobby a individual can have. It broadens perception and gives one a deeper understanding. There are vast range of subjects one can choose to read. Books also lead one in to a fantasy world. Book reading can act as stress buster too. One must learn to appreciate books and respect an individual who is a avid reader.
I conclude with the quote from Ernest Hemingway "there is no friend as loyal as book". So friends read on and also promote reading among present day youth.
