Ambivert is a personality trait, which is somewhere in between Introvert and Extrovert. Here are some of the reasons why books are an ambivert’s delight:

  2. You can avoid talking to strangers by excusing yourself to read a book.
  3. One or several of your favourite books in your hands and a warm cuppa is sufficient for “me” time.
  4. When you are looking forward to the answers to some questions that life poses, turn to a  book and turn the pages.
  5. Get an overwhelming range of topics to discuss by reading books.
  6. Shopping for books is a great experience by itself. You can even shop alone and that too anytime you want to.
  7. Your books will always be your loyal friends and never desert you no matter what. They will not even judge you.
  8. Your friends know what to gift you – Books. You need not tell them explicitly.
  9. Travelling with a good book is all that you need to avoid small talk with strangers. Alternatively, they are great conversation starters with strangers.
  10. Get a wider perspective on the world without having to meet tons of people simply by reading books.
