Isn’t it nice to see a nice bookshelf in the house with lots of books? Even if you are not a regular reader, you can get into the habit of reading books by just looking at the books on the shelf. It can also increase the aesthetic appeal of your home.
They like the author
We sometimes fall in love with the author and want to read more books written by them. Maybe you like a particular author and so whenever there is a new book out by that author, you would want it in your collection. You may also like the author even if you haven’t read any of his or her books.
It might be that you saw a movie based on a book by that author or read good things about that author; in such cases you will feel like buying books written by the author.
Got a recommendation from someone
If your friends or colleagues recommend that you read a certain book, then you will buy that book. Even if you hear your friends or other people discuss a book, you will feel like reading it yourself to know about it or to participate in that discussion as well.
To learn new things
There are many nonfiction books like ‘how-to’ books that are very helpful in learning new skills. For example, if your job role demands that you know about SEO, so you will buy some books on SEO to learn more about it.
Love the book
If you have read a book and liked it so much that you feel like reading it again and again, then you will buy the book and keep it in your collection. There are lots of books that are worth reading many times.
If you have the book on your shelf, you can tell others to read it too and let your friends borrow the book. Your family members can also read the book.
Buy as gift
A book is a wonderful gift and suitable for any occasion. Many people prefer giving books as gifts to people for Christmas or any other special occasion. They are cheap compared to other gift items yet provide a lot of happiness to the person receiving the gift.
It is a good thing to have a personal library at home. You should buy books written by famous and your favourite authors and encourage others in the family to read books. Reading can make you wise, smart and happy.
