Books can be used for intellectual stimulation and for stimulating the imagination. Unlike online articles and social media posts, books tend to be hundreds of pages and tens of thousands of words. Reading them requires patience, concentration, and deep thinking.

When you read J.R.R. Tolkien or Ernst Hemingway, you don’t just get a story, but a worldview, a way of looking at the world. In this way, even fiction can influence how we live and think. Inspirational, religious, and philosophical books do it more directly. As a result, books are also important to read because they can give us direction on how to live and how to see the world
