The Preparatory Year students' Club at King Saud University recently conducted a program entitled “Reading, a Way of Life,” a forum in which student Abdullah Al-Ajmi was selected as lead speaker in a discussion intended to stimulate cultural awareness and enhance knowledge.
The club members discussed the importance of reading and the benefits it offers, benefits such as a means to enhance cultural awareness and knowledge.
Al-Ajmi emphasized that reading is a means of better understanding people and their cultures.
The more individuals read, Al-Ajmi offered, the more cultured they become and the more open they are to the society that surrounds them.
He suggested that people read because they have a need for information to keep pace in an era of rapid globalization, learning the secrets of the cultures, civilizations, arts and social progress.
