This is a warning to everyone out there. Oh sure, you may have been curious to try a book, all the cool kids are doing it, right? But here’s what they WON’T tell you about reading:
Books can lead people to thinking your educated and sophisticated.
Reading will broaden your horizons and make you question things.
Just reading ONE book can lead you to reading more.
And, before you know it, you’re down a rough patch.
Some studies have linked books to an increase in vocabulary, and test scores.
It’s kind of like Netflix, except the movies last at least eight hours and you can re-watch them again and again with no monthly fee.
Not to mention, what’s in these things?! Do you really want to learn about life, hardship, love, hate, victories and defeats? It’s SO much effort.
But, the worst thing is that books can lead to an improved imagination and a greater sense of self.
So, whatever you do, don’t read!
Unless… You want to become a more well-rounded human being who wants to experience as many things as they can in this short time we have to ride this rock we call the Earth through space.
Shameless Plug: I am an aspiring author. Read my current work on Fiction Press here, I live off reviews and follows! Don’t forget to follow me on Tumblr for more fun, usually literature-related content. Thanks!
