Pleasure of Reading :
Reading may be a compulsion for a school going child, pastime for a retired person, but a pleasure for many. You can discover simile on the face of novel- reader, a gleam in the eyes of the reader of a poem and furrow of seriousness on the forehead of a person reading a newspaper report. Reading disturbs mind and heart. Waves of thinking and emotion are generated by reading. So the pleasure is immediate and it continues to linger in the mind.
Reading lifts us up from the harsh realities of life into the world of imagination. The magic touch of fancy transmutes grief into joy, failure into success, pain into pleasure and fear into hope. Even an unhappy man sheds his unhappiness and realities no longer press hard.
Reading gives intellectual satisfaction. A detective novel satisfies the sense of curiosity, serious literature encourages intellectual activity, light literature amuses us and poetry stirs our imaginations. One can relive the past and create the future by reading. By reading books, we enrich our experience and sharpens our judgments. Experience, in its turn, makes us wiser and self-confident.
Books can give company when human beings cannot. We can happily spend our lonely hours in the company of the author-tailored characters. A train journey may be tiresome if we do not have a magazine or a newspaper by our side sleepless nights may not be spent without a mystery thriller.
Reading gives us varied pleasure. A sensuous poet may provide a rich feast for our senses, another may satisfy our aesthetic sense and another may give intellectual edificiaotn. Reading gives spiritual, intellectual and even sensuous pleasure.
