Yes, I am in absolute love with reading.. because every book unleashes a new set of adventure.

Reading books naturally inspire empathy for the characters, and empathizing with viewpoints different from our own.

Do you like to read at home or in other places?

Well, its’s really hard to concentrate on reading if the place is noisy or uncomfortable. For instance, reading in some café or public place is quite difficult because of noise and a lot of movement.
