From christmas and horror to picture books and science fiction, we have got books to suit everyone's taste.

Although they may not appear it, books are a portal to another world. They are a place where imagination runs wild and creativity is limitless. In our ever busy world, too many people forget the feeling of getting lost in a good book. Statistically, 1 in 4 adults will not even pick up a book during the entire year. If you fall into this category then it is time to climb back out. There are some important benefits that can be gained from reading a book, and not all of them are just for leisure and enjoyment. Here are some of the main reasons that you should delve into the pages of a good book.

The first major benefit of reading a book is that it can improve your mental processes. You will be able to build fundamental skills that will help you in every aspect of your life. One direct benefit of reading is that of an improved vocabulary. How many times have you read a book and found words that you had never heard of before? The beauty of a book is that many times you can infer the meaning of a new word just by the context that it is in, but if not, then you can quickly look it up and gain that knowledge. A challenging book will constantly be exposing you to new words that you may not have run across otherwise.

One of the great enjoyments of reading is that you will be able to experience cultures and places you might not ever have been able to explore. Whether fiction or non-fiction, a good author can paint a picture of a place or culture better than any picture could describe. A book allows you to expand your horizons and really understand what other countries or societies have to offer without ever having to travel there in person.

Last of all, reading can be an exercise to improve your memory and your self esteem. Reading helps you to exercise your memory muscles so that you can better remember facts in the future. This directly relates to your self esteem, because knowledge is power. The more that you know, the better self image you are going to have. You will be the expert on the topics that you are reading about. People will start looking to you for answers and you will feel the power of having an influence in someone's life.

With all of the benefits that come from reading, it is not hard to see how important it really is. Not only that, reading can be incredibly enjoyable. So whether it has been a month or a few years, take the time to delve into a book and get lost all over again.

If you are really not in to reading much yourself, a book makes the perfect gift for any occasion. Even though modern technology is changing the way we live our lives, even reading, you still can not beat the feeling of reading a real book.

Save yourself an arduous trip to the book shop and find the perfect book for yourself or a loved one in our extensive catalog of every category of book you could wish for.
