Thanks for announcing the list of selections as people may participate in the meeting by planning their schedules for the year. It’s a true saying that "Reading without reflecting is like eating without digesting." Edmund Burke. When a reader reads the book and replicate the moral or share the moral of the story with any person then that person will also gain some knowledge and if the person who read the book and will not remember then what is the use of reading. Then nothing will hold good.
When a person read a book he has to know what the author is trying to tell or what the moral of the story is. By understanding the moral person will gain some knowledge. By reading books, it’s like a fun time and also a knowledge time. Reading books will help a person to come out from there depression or any other mental status.
