Reading helps to exercise the mind just like real exercise is to the body. Books help to strengthen your intellect, decision-making and to make you grow. Books also help you and me to understand the world around us, our past, today, and the possibility of a future. Daniel the great prophet during the time they were in exile in Babylon, understood what would befall them while they were in exile by reading the books, the book of Jeremiah in particular.
Although Daniel was highly spiritual still he had to read. All this shows why reading books is very important. One Wiseman once said that if you are growing you are dying. It is such a time like this lockdown that we should be growing and not dying. Below are some of the books that I might recommend you to read during these lockdown times.

It also guides you on how to pray and get the results you desire, something that is possible by avoiding greed, thinking purely, and not condemning things that you want to have in your life such as money.
There is a powerful saying by joseph murphy which is, “What you openly or silently condemn will grow wings and fly away from you’’. This means simply means if you want to be rich do not condemn openly or silently those that are famous, same with if you want to be rich or academically brilliant, do not condemn those that have made it already. Rather embrace and appreciate the effort that they have made.
