“The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you’ll go.” – Dr. Suess
Once upon a time people use to read. A lot. They would sit down with a book in their hands and get lost in other worlds and realities. They would garnish new ideas and learn lessons from the morals of stories, and people’s imaginations took flight. Now, in the days of wearable tech and video games, books are taking a back seat.
More young kids are finding reading to be a chore or something uninteresting. Sadder still are the amount of people who are not able to read. Why read the book when they can watch the movie? Why read about great explorers when they can find a video game that relates to the topic?
I love to read. I’ll read practically anything that is put in front of me. I can escape reality and experience many things from the comfort of my own home.
When was the last time you read a good book? I’m not talking about a random fly by read-out-of-boredom book, but a book that excited you. One that you couldn’t wait to pick up and delve into. A book where you got so engrossed in the story that it put you in the midst of everything.
Now that’s a good book.
Perhaps more people need to be told of the wonders of reading? Let’s get people reading again and away from the glowing lights of a screen – at least for an hour. There are all types of books out there, and I’m sure that the perfect one is waiting for you.
