For some people, reading books is something only done when there’s an upcoming examination. But for other people, reading books is something done whenever they want to learn more about certain things. It’s also something done when there’s a crushing feeling of exhaustion from your day job or when there’s a pining feeling of connection from your loved ones.
That being said, here are the important lessons we should know about reading books:
It teaches us the importance of learning. It also teaches us the value of time.
As they say, time spent on learning is time spent well. This is what reading books can teach us. Instead of playing video games the entire day, why not read books like Suzanne Collins’ The Hunger Games trilogy? Instead of watching TV shows the entire day, why not read books like Cassandra Clare’s The Mortal Instruments series? The key here is learning a thing or two, no matter what book you are reading and no matter how many books you are reading within a period of time – rather than letting the time pass by without getting your brain active.
It teaches us the importance of living. It also teaches us the value of others.
Let’s face it. We now live in a world dominated by social media and other technology forms. Reading books will not just teach us that there are things best experienced without pasting your fingers on the keyboard, but also teach us the importance of living. Reading books will also not just teach us that there are things best seen without gluing your eyes on the computer, but also teach us the value of others. What’s more, both of these can be done by letting you reconnect with nature as you read a book in parks or letting you reconnect with others as you read a book with them.
