The time spent at home has increased dramatically and, especially for those with children, it becomes difficult to manage the hours of work and leisure in a balanced way.

A good way to relax the mind is reading : one of the classic ways to relax on the sofa on Sunday afternoon or shortly after dinner, in the company of a good glass of wine and perhaps with the pleasant aroma of a scented candle that spreads around the room.

Staying comfortably at home, you can travel with your imagination and let yourself be transported to times , places and situations that are completely different from reality. Taking your brain off for a few hours will help you feel regenerated and the choice of lyrics is really huge.

It can range from historical to science fiction books, from treatises on psychology and philosophy to poetic collections , from classic romance novels to genres so popular today such as fantasy and urban fantasy .

If there is a shortage of space in the house where you can store your bound favorites and the shelves of the library in the living room are overflowing with books, you shouldn't be discouraged from getting new writings to read: for fans of this hobby it is practically impossible.

To this end, technology comes to the aid; in fact today almost all the texts are available, as well as in paper format , also in digital format : Epub, PDF and Ebook, you just have to choose the type of file that best suits the application on the smartphone or the reader available, select the reading mode that helps protect the eyes and prepare for a couple of hours of relaxation.

One of the main advantages of reading is that it embraces everyone, young and old, graduates or not, without any distinction. Anyone can read if you want.

To improve, to grow, to understand, to express yourself better. Reading enriches in all senses and increases one's cultural background.
