19 Books I Read in 2020

 Introduction

The Reading habit is not easy to develop. If you are a student, you need to develop this reading habit in order to know how to read novels and short stories, how to read plays, and how to read poetry. For the teachers and others, reading habit is important for developing your career and enriching yourself with wide range of knowledge of this world.

For me, reading is like eating. We should eat to live and stay healthy. We should also read books to live and stay updated. Bearing this in mind, 2020 was another year which I had to read to live and stay updated. Reading books is crucial because it helps us solve various challenges of life which could be impossible or difficult to solve if we did not spend our time to read.
