The Importance of promoting good Reading habits in students. They say it for a reason that books are your best friends. While growing up the best habit you can inculcate is reading because you become what you read. The books that you read play a very important role in your up-bringing as they are your guide for the journey of life. Here are a few personality attributes which are highly influenced by regular reading habit.

Improves Communication
Books are the best way to get acquainted with extra- ordinary words in the english language. Reading books will help you learn new words and demonstrate different ways in which you can use them in your daily expression. This will ultimately improve your personal vocabulary. Also to understand the grammar of any language, reading stories and articles of that particular language will increase your depth of understanding about it.

Better Ability to Comprehend.
Kids who develop the habit of reading at an early age are good at comprehending situations and develop a better sense of understanding than those who do not read. They are capable of understanding serious situations and analyze the cause and effect scenario maturely. To develop reading abilities early on, try reading aloud and take baby steps towards improvement. Don’t be too hard on yourself, take pleasure in reading.

Imparts Knowledge
There is no denying in the fact that reading imparts knowledge in a person. Gaining knowledge makes you feel confident about the subject and invokes your interest deeper into the topics. For cognitive development, school curriculums also include various interesting topics so that students are keen about the subject from young age. Aids Sleeping Reading before bedtime helps fight insomnia better than indulgence in the electronic devices which works totally opposite. Books aid your sleep naturally and involve your brain into knowledgeable things before sleeping. Psychologically it is recommended that people should think about healthy thoughts before going to bed. A good book read before bed time can work wonders for the peace of mind. Escape From Real World Books give a person the unstoppable freedom to explore the world of fiction. The writers as well as the readers are free to take up topics of their choice and throw open the gates of the fictitious world in their mind. Some works of fiction roll over books after books but never lose the grip of the readers on the series. It is because creative minds are powerhouses of exciting amusements and we can only agree more if we had read some of those amazing creations.


Rose, a young graduate, was searching for a company job. She got a teaching appointment but rejected it. Teaching, she said, is a profession that stifles the progress of man. Moreover the reward of teachers is in Heaven. She was obsessed with the idea of working in a company. After two years of unemployment she did not find life easy. It was becoming unbearable. She could not continue to beg for daily bread. It was dehumanizing. She could not sell her body for money since she came from a good Christian home. It was irritating to her to stay indoors. This situation prevailed until she met Jerry Jones, an old school mate who promised he would get her a job. He gave her an appointment. When she came he introduced her to the idea of drug trafficking. He told her how wealthy she would be in a short time and that she would finally be laughing at those who were ridiculing her when she had no money.

At first Rose objected to this proposal. Jones put more pressure on her because he feared Rose would expose him. She eventually succumbed, without thinking of the repercussions of being caught. She made the first trip and a it was successful. There was plenty of money. She did not believe how wealthy she had become. She was also successful in her second trip. Temptation, unlike opportunity, will always give one a second chance. She did not remember the saying, "Many days are for the thief but one day for the owner of the house." The severe penalty for drug pushing did not deter her. She began to live big in accordance with the Epicurean philosophy of "Enjoy today for tomorrow you may die."

Rose was caught in her fifth attempt. She would have wisely stopped after her first trip but "when a dog wants to die it does not perceive the smell of excreta." Her master Jerry Jones, the drug baron, did not come to her aid. Rose was shown on the television screen as a drug pusher. She was clamped into detention for two years before she was tried. Rose spent a lot of money during her trial. She sold most of her property to hire a very brilliant lawyer, a Senior Advocate of Nigeria (SAN).

Finally she was lucky to be discharged and acquitted for want of evidence. But the first casualty was her freedom and the second her reputation because even though she was freed, people avoided her like a leper. Nobody desired her for a wife any longer. She now realized that one should work through lawful ways to achieve satisfying success. A female drug pusher was a shame to womanhood, that "slow and steady wins the race." She cursed the day she met Jerry Jones. "I HAVE NEVER FELT SO EMBARRASSED IN MY LIFE" she lamented.

Never in my life have I ever felt so embarrassed and so alone. I feel that it's about time to let others know that miscarriage is something that has been put aside for far too long....
It took me a couple of weeks to decide to share my story in this way. But I feel that it's about time to let others know that miscarriage is something that has been put aside for far too long. with the victims being left in deafening silence in the corner. I had my miscarriage last year in February. I was on a train home from work at around 7pm when I felt sharp pains in my tummy and then I felt that my trousers were wet. I was bleeding. Ashamed, worried and panicking about what is going on with my 5 week old baby inside me, I took the first cab I saw and got myself to A&E.
I got there and somehow I knew that it was too late. Still I was hoping that it wasn't. I came to the next available staff in A&E to tell them what happened and I was told to sit on a chair and wait to be called in by a nurse to see a doctor. My trousers where messy with blood and my tummy was still hurting. I cried silently in that little corner where they've put me to wait. I waited for 3 hours for someone to call me. By the time someone has called me to take my bloods...the pain was gone and the blood on my trousers where drying up....I knew my baby was gone. I've left a mess on the chair and I was so embarrassed. After they took my bloods and cannulated me...the nurse told me to go back to where I was waiting before and wait for someone to call me to see a doctor. I went to sit back on that same chair. I decided to go to the toilet and tried to clean myself up. I looked at myself in the mirror and asked myself what I did wrong. My eyes were puffy from crying. I took a load of tissue to suck up the blood that was coming out of me and tried to clean up my underwear. When I came out of the toilet...I asked the nurse if I was called but her reply was no. I waited and waited then my fiancΓ© came and held me tight. He kindly brought me clean change of clothes and I went to change my trousers. Never in my life have I ever felt so embarrassed and so alone. I have suffered depression after that event. There are some things that you wish you could forget. But they remain embedded in your mind and heart. Miscarriage is more than losing one little life that did not get the chance to meet it's mum and dad. unfortunately, miscarriage can cause someone (the mother of the father) to lose their mind and themselves. I'm a witness to that. It happened to me.

Dear Olamide,
How are you? I hope you are feeling well. I must confess that I have missed our company and I believe you have as well. I was glad to receive your letter last month from Mama. However, my excitement lasted only with the fact that I heard from you. Your decision to stop schooling for business is some how not going down well with me due to the following reasons

First, it is not a sound decision to stop schooling after the third year. You have barely a year to finish from school. If I were in your shoes, I would have graduated from school and then start my business. The prevailing unemployment might be the major reason why you are scared of continuing. It is understandable. I would want you to view it from this perspective, what would be the reward for your three year labour at school if you eventually dropped out. In the same vein, business requires patience and time to get rewards.

Furthermore, a better businessman is the one who is educated. There will be difference between how a stack illiterate will do their business from an educated person. As an half baked graduate, you may not be different from those who didn't go to school at all

Finally, certificates from school  nowadays are not meant for chasing white collar jobs. They are actually ends to the means. It is very important that you consider graduating to get the certificate.
There will be opportunities for educated people eventually in the future. I would advise that you finish schooling.

                 Yours sincerely,
               Put your Name

Once upon a time in the land of Tabuluka, there was a boy named Songa. Songa was well behaved and was of transparent honesty. He had a great problem, in that he was an orphan, having lost his father three months before he was born, and the mother six months after he was born. He had faced the problem of lack of care. He withdrew from school at the age of seven when there was nobody to sponsor his education any longer. He had no alternative than to seek for a menial job. He secured a job as a messenger to the king of Tabuluka.

He was diligent in the discharge of his duty to the king. Unlike the rest of the messengers, he was very trustworthy and an embodiment of honesty. To crown it all, he was very handsome but remained very poor. The only solace he had was that he was very much admired by the king and the queen. After working with the king for twenty-five years he was faced with the greatest temptation of his life. By this time he was fully grown up and had learnt a lot through the king’s high chiefs who formed the cabinet. Indeed, it was a monarchy, that is, a government headed by the king. He was sufficiently lettered and could communicate in the language of administration. He had undergone various diplomatic courses. He had been promoted from a messenger to the position of the king’s protocol officer. The promotion was rather very fast considering his background.

Songa had acquired a new status as he had become the cynosure of all eyes. He was loved by the queen but she could not openly tell him. The queen made several attempts with the hope that Songa would sleep with her but he couldn’t get the signal. The queen who had been instrumental to the boy’s rapid promotion formally called Soga and told him how much she loved him due to his level of honesty, diligence and sense of responsibility. She said she would give him as assignment at a later date and failure to carry out such would lead to death. Songa was ready to carry out any assignment provided it was not to kill.

One day when the king was on tours of his vassal states, the queen called Songa, the king’s protocol officer to her bedroom. The queen then locked the door after Songa had entered. Songa was afraid thinking that the queen might use him for rituals but he had no alternative than t  CVo obey. The queen then told Songa her age-long secret love for him and then requested that he sleep with her. Songa couldn’t believe his ears as he struggled to run out
