Reading books have the following benefits:
Books shoo away the loneliness
Books are true friends; they will never leave you alone. So, how does a book removes the loneliness of a person? The answer is simple -> the books we read have emotions that connect us with the real world.
Most of the time people relate stories with real life. They dissolve in the Novel’s character. They think that everything is happening to them.
Sometimes people relate the fantasy stories with their real-life to a level that they forgot their surroundings an emerged in the stories.
While reading a good novel our brain imagines the things happening in the story, which makes it very interesting. In this way, books shoo away the loneliness of a person.

If you want internal peace then you should consider reading storybooks and Novels. In short, your imagination is the ultimate source of peace.
You are free to imagine anything there is no limitation on imaginations. You can imagine that you have bought your dream car or you may have purchased your dream house.
Such things give peace to everyone.
