It relieves us from the monotony of daily life. But in our country, buying books has not become a popular habit. The students of our country read only textbooks for passing exams. Most of them do not have a curiosity to get outside knowledge. Besides this, in our country, the prices of books are excessively high. Books are beyond reach due to sky-scraping price. In the past, books were the only media for entertainment. People spent their leisure by reading books. But now, the satellite TV channel has created many opportunities for entertainment.
