«Books and friends should be few but
good», says an English proverb. Except a living man there is nothing more
wonderful than a book! The book is certainly one of the greatest inventions of
man. It is a friend and a teacher. We learn many things by reading books. Books
teach people to live. The book is a faithful friend. They form our values and
our characters. It gives us an opportunity to imagine the future, to look into
the past. One can learn a lot by reading books.
There are a lot of libraries in our
country, where we can choose any book we need. Everyone has the right to use
public libraries. The librarian is always ready to help you to find a book on
Talks, exhibitions and other events
take place in libraries. Except reading special and scientific literature it is
a great pleasure to read belles-lettres.
Different people like to read
different kinds of it. It depends on one's taste and character. Some people
prefer detectives or science fiction. Others like historical books. Girls and
women prefer love stories. Children like comics very much.
As for me, I prefer to read science
fiction. It is very interesting and exciting for me as my hobby is computing. I
read that some scientists think that without the computer the 21st century
would be impossible. Computers are penetrating all spheres of human activity.
In many of them they become indispensable. They calculate orbits, guide
spaceships and planes, play chess, teach pupils, house wives to choose a menu.
We often her that the increasing flood of information will be one of the problems
of the 21st century. A computer may help to solve it too. It’s hard enumerate
all the uses the computer may be put too. To my mind any books are our best
friends. We must treat them with care and they will give us a lot of pleasure.
