Babies and children learn to talk by hearing words.
All they have to do is pick up a book and read it.
One of the primary benefits of reading books is its ability to develop critical thinking skills.
But why are we really taught to read?
History plays an important role is who we are today.
We can always share whatever we have read with our family, friends and colleagues.
For example, you may find yourself dividing your time between working on a task, chatting with people via Skype, checking email, keeping an eye on Facebook and interacting with your colleagues.
