It’s been a while, am I right? To be precise, it’s been 17 days (2 weeks and 3 days). I hope you guys understand, just lately things have been insane and I just haven’t had the time to sit down and let my thoughts flood over this post. But, I’m back! And, before I tell you all about what I love about reading I just want to say that on 1st May I will be celebrating my 6 month anniversary where I will be sharing some VERY exciting news with you all. I am now going to try post at least once a week, so look out for next week’s post! Also, stay tuned for my bujo reveal (probably coming near the end of March). Now read on!
What do I love about reading? Is it the thrill of never knowing quite where a book will take me, or is it the emotional roller coaster of the connection between you and the characters?
If you guys didn’t know, I’m a total book worm. You’ll either find me buying books, or reading them. But why do I love reading? I’m going to give you a couple of reasons why reading is such an amazing thing, and I’m going to tell you my favourite reading quote so far!
- A way to escape – reading is such a great escape. When I’m going through something difficult, I feel stressed out or I just need a break from well, real life I find the first thing I usually reach for is a book. I become a different person, I meet different people and see different things, at some points in a book, I feel as if I’m inside the book, witnessing everything form the sideline, or sometimes being the main character.
- Cultures the imagination – does anybody ever feel disappointed when they read a book and have the perfect image of all the characters and scenes and then watch the film and feel disappointment? That’s why, for me, I have to read the book before I watch the film. Anyways, I have a vivid imagination, I’m one of those people who see a simple cloud and see it as something else. A wolf hunting its prey, a dinosaur climbing a tree or a bird flapping its wings. People who don’t have an imagination generally struggles to read as they can’t picture what is happening in the book.
- You learn a lot of things – for instance, I have learnt a lot of things through reading. Especially with Geek Girl, I love the sort of random facts Wiki comes up with. Not just that though, I’ve learnt a lot of life decisions, and have made a lot of morals through it. I’m sure everybody has had their fair share of life lessons through reading, and maybe one day they might use that advice. I find that the Mates Dates series is great and giving advice for teens.
