The Importance Of Reading Books

For some people, reading can be quite daunting – unless there’s really a need for it, like when one has to do an examination the next day at school.

For other people, however, reading can be quite delighting – unless there’s really no need for it, like when one has to do a chore the next day at home.

You see, there’s more to reading books than just being conjunctives for examinations at school. You also see, there’s more to reading books than just being alternatives for chores at home.

Reading books is about:

Seeing & Experiencing, Realizing

Want to see for yourself the magic of friendship? Try reading J.K. Rowling’s Harry Potter series. Want to experience for yourself the miracle of love? Try reading Lauren Kate’s Fallen series. You see, what you thought you’ve never seen in real life just yet can be seen when you read books. You also see, what you thought you’ve never experienced in real life just yet can be experienced when you read books. Afterwards, that’s when you’ll realize…you’ve already seen the magic of friendship in real life, thanks to your beloved pets; or you’ve already experienced the miracle of love in real life, thanks to your beloved parents.

Thinking & Imagining, Applying

No matter what kind of book you’re reading – no matter how many types of picture books you’re reading, even – a book serves a meaningful purpose: one that makes you think about its characters like you would about a real-life person, one that makes you imagine about its story like you would about a real-life situation, and one that makes you apply everything you’ve learned from reading a certain kind of book. Even more so, it will transport you someplace out of this world, yet into this world where you can just think and imagine about everything you’ve read about at once and apply anything you’ve learned about as needed.
