INCREDIBLE BENEFITS OF READING: Why you should read every day
One of the reasons behind the creation of Knowledge is Power Group on social media is to stimulate reading habits. In this part of the world, so many people forget about reading immediately they are out of the four walls of classrooms. Reading becomes perfunctory. So many people have said that since they left classrooms, they have never held a book to read. If they read, perhaps the Bible when praying. We cannot continue like this if we are serious about changing our lives. Every effort must be made to reawaken the reading habits to the benefits of all. In this lecture, I shall be looking at 20 INCREDIBLE BENEFITS OF READING: Why we should read every day. It is going to be interesting.
