I don’t really like books. Actually, I find books very boring. But that doesn’t mean that I never read anything. I spend a lot of time on the Internet reading different forums, posts and articles. I think it’s the best way of getting information and keeping up with the world and I have a lot of friends who do the same. I find it very unfair when people say that nowadays teenagers don’t read. People should be open-minded and not so quick to judge.
One thing that makes me really sad is that I know that I will never be able to read all the great books that have been written by the best minds and talents in the history of humankind. There just isn’t enough time! But it never hurts to try. So why would you ever want to waste your time reading mediocre modern books written by unknown writers who haven’t yet had the time to polish their writing style when there are so many classics? I find it ridiculous.
To me reading has always been a way to escape. Within seconds of opening a book you find yourself in a world completely unlike our own. Your boring everyday problems like going to school, doing homework, getting good marks or tidying up your room are replaced with the exciting problems of saving the world, defeating the evil magician and trying to stay alive. With every new book you get to experience a different life. What could be better?
Have you ever encountered the problem that when you are packing to go on vacation you simply can’t fit all your books into your suitcase? Believe me: it’s not fun. Well, ever since I bought an e-book, my life has become much easier. Now I can carry thousands of books wherever I go. The only problem is that it can be very unpleasant when your battery decides to die half way through an exciting chapter. Life can be really unfair.
It can be a challenge to teach your child to love reading books. Of course, reading books to your kid from the earliest age is the most obvious solution. But honestly, I just don’t have the time or the patience. I find myself falling asleep every time I attempt reading out loud. Audiobooks are a great alternative here. My children love them. I myself enjoy listening to them while driving to work. And to be completely frank, the actors do a much better job reading than I do.
I love reading non-fiction books, especially self-help books. I’m always trying to improve myself, and such books are a great source of knowledge and inspiration. Even if I don’t learn anything new, it can be nice to look at something from a different perspective, learn about other people’s stories and know that I’m not alone. Often these books provide the push I need to change my life for the better. I think that other people’s experiences can be a great way to learn about yourself.
