My dear friend,

Hope my letter finds you in a fit and fine situation. We are all well by the grace of the Almighty. I have come to know that you do not read newspapers. Well, let me tell you some interesting facts about the habit of reading newspapers.

Newspapers keep us updated about all the surrounding happenings. We come to know the latest things on this earth. We can be aware of the modern threats and crimes around us. A person who reads the newspaper daily can improve his/her language.

So, basically, newspaper reading is a very good and constructive habit. Current affairs is a very important chapter in our syllabus. And we can improve it by reading the newspaper.

So, try to build up the habit of reading newspapers daily to keep you updated with the changes of time.

Hope you understand the importance of reading a newspaper and so, adopt this good habit. No more today. More when we meet.

Give regards to your parents and love to your younger sister.

Yours ever,
