Do you see the people on subways? Almost everyone uses smartphones these days and they surf the internet or watch movies and TV shows anywhere and anytime---the subway is not the exception, and I too am one of those people. According to current newspaper articles, college students read only about 15 minutes a day while people use the internet 2 hours per day on average. When I read the article, it suddenly occurred to me that "time is gold,” and I have changed! Now I try to read at least one book a month, but the goal is not easily accomplished, as I did not have a reading habit. I didn’t know how to start and every time I tried to read it was very boring. As such, reading was difficult for me, but eventually the three master books of reading have helped me overcome my problems. Let me introduce them especially for you!
