You can choose the book you want and it is not limited to some sentences, you should spend time to read it and engage with it. May be that is why that it creates a world for you to enjoy it!

Don’t forget the magic of audiobook!

You can download some audiobook on your smartphone or tablet and play it while you are on the bus or subway heading to your work or returning home!

You can also listen to your favorite book while you are busy with your home life. It helps you to create time for reading!

E-books, a way for managing smartphones!

The emergence of electronic publishing and e-books in recent years is a way to use smartphones for developing book reading.

E-book is a solution to not let your smartphone dominate your day. It is always with you and you can open your book wherever you are and read some lines. 

They are environmentally friendly, cost effective and you always have the chance to choose from a variety of e-books.

During recent years, electronic publishing launched some apps to use on tablets and smartphones for books in Persian language.

‘Fidib’, ‘taaghche’ and ‘faraketab’ are some of these apps, which are widely used by Iranian book readers.

 “Short as life is,” make it longer by reading books

Victor Hugo said, “Short as life is, we make it shorter still by the careless waste of time”.

Books introduce you to people of all ages and all places and provide you an opportunity to witness different lives while you are leaning, turning its pages. Don’t deprive yourself from this feast!
