21st century millennials are not mostly inclined towards book reading. Modern day millennials are more interested in being on any social media platform rather than reading books to pass their free time. People are now very less inclined towards book reading.This may be due to their hectic lifestyle or maybe due to their reluctance towards spending time on reading books over activities like watching movies,listening to music etc.

We have no idea how to react to all the situations we get involved knowingly or unknowingly. Life becomes taugher once you grow older.
