I chose the book I am currently reading – “Stand for the Family” by Sharon Slater. It explains the importance of family for the society, a topic I am actively promoting in my political work for many years now. I am reading it one chapter at a time, mostly while travelling between Slovakia, Brussels, and Strasbourg. I like the spirit in which the book was written, it is both sincere and well-argued, even though I find some ideas presented by the author rather controversial. My passion for books developed in early childhood years. My parents always encouraged me to read as much as possible. I find that in digital era dominated by instant information exchanged on social networks, reading books is extremely important. By offering more context and deeper analysis, books helps us to better understand ongoing social phenomena and trends. On the physiological level, reading of printed texts also develops memory and stimulates cognitive functions of our brain.
