Books are Spiritual Food

English section Wang Ruohan: l think that

Shakespeare said, «Books are the nourishment of the world. Without books in life, it is as if there is no sunlight in the earth and books in wisdom, as if birds have no wings.» Books are spiritual food that accompanies us throughout our lives. Reading is one of the most important habit.  Thus, having a good reading skill will often get twice the result with half the effort.  For me, I think good reading habits should include: bringing things to a close, using fragmented time and using «tools».

Bringing things to a close

When you start reading a book, read it till the end. Whether you read or do other things, persistence is the key to success.

Use fragmented time

If you set aside at least 5-10 minutes of reading time every day, for example, you can develop the habit of reading at breakfast or lunch time, before going to bed or while having a bath If you read for ten minutes at a time, it will be thirty minutes of reading time per day.  This is a good start, and it helps to develop good daily reading habits.

Use «tools»

The term tool  here is a way to improve reading skills. For example, when you are reading a book in another language, the dictionary is your tool.  Use tools flexibly. When you encounter something you don’t understand, using tools such as the Internet can help you to understand the book better and deepen your impression of the article.

There is an old Chinese saying: «The book has its own golden house, and the book has its own beauty.» I think it is necessary to develop the habit of reading.
