Books: My best friends



By Manvi Pandey

We all must have a best friend in our lives, someone who never lets us feel alone, brings happiness, and provides comfort. I, too, have such a best friend, someone who helps me overcome my problems and teaches me about various things. Can you guess who my best friend is? Yes, you are absolutely correct! It’s books.

I began considering books as my best friends when I read a novel titled “The Night of the Leopard” in the 5th grade. This experience made me find reading books interesting, and it enriched my mind with moral values and good thoughts, just like a true friend would.

Furthermore, it is our responsibility to choose between good and bad books. Reading books benefits us in numerous ways:

  1. They help increase our knowledge and foster creativity.
  2. Books guide us in overcoming various difficulties in our lives.
  3. They instill moral values in us.
  4. Books offer courage and encourage us never to give up.
  5. Reading makes us feel relaxed and at ease.

Books authored by famous and experienced individuals aid us in becoming better human beings and teach us how to serve society in the best possible way. So, whenever you find yourself alone, instead of wasting time, pick up a book and start reading.

Books are our best friends as they help us conquer our failures and inspire us to perform good deeds. Additionally, books and knowledge always stay with us during difficult times. They teach us to dream and provide guidance on how to fulfill those dreams.

I have read many books, such as “Oliver Twist” by Charles Dickens, “Black Beauty” by Anna Sewell, and “The Canterville Ghost” by Oscar Wilde, among others. Reading these books has brought me immense happiness.

As someone rightly said, “A room without books is like a body without a soul.” This essentially means that our hearts should be adorned with literary masterpieces as they expose us to the light of truth. Therefore, we should always read a book to infuse positivity into our lives.
