Why is reading important?
the past and exploring the future, books examine culture and
humanity, capture common experience, and help propagate ideas that
effect real, revolutionary change in the world today. Books
invigorate the imagination and inspire ambition, they affect people;
they keep a finger to the pulse of humanity in a way that transcends
and binds generations past, present, and future.
Everyone enjoys different kinds of books; often it's easiest to
start reading based on recommendations from people who you share
some common interests with. It's best to begin with material that
you enjoy and that you're comfortable with, then develop your
appreciation and comprehension at a pace that suits you. Reading is
often a lifetime hobby, but even so, the amount of books that you're
able to read in an entire lifetime is just a fraction of the
available material. A diverse and comprehensive exposure is critical
to reaping the full rewards of reading; reading books that hold your
interest while staying focused on what you want to learn and
deliberately developing your appreciation is key to a balanced,
focused and satisfying reading hobby.
Much like other rewarding hobbies and interests, reading can take a
considerable investment of time and effort before its full benefits
are realised. As any adamant reader knows, once you've discovered
how rewarding, entertaining, and enlightening reading can be, it's
hard to stop.
Books can improve your vocabulary, stretch your understanding and
challenge your ideas. Reading can be an excellent way to broaden
your perspective, enrich your grasp on just about any subject
matter, and improve your ability to communicate with and understand
people effectively. Whether it's manuals, textbooks, memoirs,
biographies, literature, fiction or non-fiction, you can always
expect to come away with new knowledge, a deeper understanding of
people and their motives, or a fresh and rich perspective on
culture, civilisation, the arts, and so much more.
Books exist for just about every interest, too. From gardening to
space travel, biology to sociology, light-hearted entertainment to
engaging, enlightening literature, there's a book out there for
every one of us. By investing a little time and effort, you can
almost certainly find something that will pique your interest, and
if you stick to it, the opportunities for education, entertainment,
and enrichment are limitless.
