Watch: Anke Gowda, Man With The Largest Collection Of Books (More Than 1.5 Million) In India

This activity differs from person to person and it might include dancing, singing, painting, and even sleeping. However, a large number of people consider reading as a magical bliss that takes all their sorrows away.

Readers also have this habit of collecting various books of several genres and be the owner of a wide-ranging collection of books.
