The project "In a good bookompany" is excellent because it reminds me of the importance of reading books on a daily basis that I have loved since early childhood. I like to read books because they help me in the continuous expansion of general knowledge and understanding about people, events and interesting countries and many other topics that particularly interest me. I try to constantly advance in personal intellectual development, and reading books helps me a lot. By reading, I expand my own vocabulary, raise my concentration and improve my focus. With an interesting but demanding job, a good book really relaxes me, and discussing an inspiring book with dear people in good company is priceless. It is a valuable and useful pastime that I particularly enjoy.
