Reading in the World

There is no doubt that we live in a world where a lot of times reading just isn’t cool. We are surrounded by people who would rather tweet something than pick up a book that could possibly change their lives. I’m here to tell you that reading can be cool and here’s why. 

Intelligence 

I learned a lot of new words and phrases from books that I read. You don’t even have to have a dictionary a lot of the times they will be surrounded by context clues so you can just sort of understand what they mean. Plus in our world it helps to have a good vocabulary and reading can definitely help with that. 

Some great fictional characters did it. 

Come on guys, Belle from Beauty and the Beast, Rory Gilmore from the Gilmore Girls? What did these two ladies have in common? They both loved to read, and you know what? They weren’t ashamed of it. Both ladies would sit out in public with people going by reading books because they simply didn’t care what others thought. 

It can spark discussion.

For book lovers sometimes connecting over a good book is all you need to make a new friend or just to understand someone on a deeper level. So next time you see someone reading that book you really enjoyed go up and talk to them about it. And hey, if they blow you off just ignore them. 

Fun

Reading is fun and if something being fun isn’t a reason to do it. I don’t know what is. 
There are so many other reasons why you should pick up a good book and escape into a new world. So grab one open it up and start with the first word. 

  The bookcase I built in shop class. Yes I’m aware there’s a flip flop! 
Hey a little bit of a side note. If you guys see any books on my case that you would like me to do a review over just let me know in the comments. 

Thank you and may your day be as awesome as you are,
