Reading is an exercise. It’s like a work out for your brain. We are humans and we give much value to what we look like. So we exercise to get some muscle, six packs, eight packs and all that stuff. In the process we forget the thing which drives whole body. You know it, but you don’t give a damn. I don’t want to look like a geek or someone call me bookish.
Right from our childhood, we hate books. They are big turn offs. when you are out of the studies, you realize the importance of books. You wish you read at least you syllabus books. Now when you want to read you don’t have time. This is the situation with many. You get time to watch a porno, go to a club or just sleep. But no time for the books.
Exactly opposite to this, there are peoples who read a lot of books. That is good. In fact great. They are called Readers. Often they develop a taste of books. Here comes the bad thing. They try to impose their taste on you. You’ll fall for this as you think he is a good reader and has good knowledge about books. It’s not necessary that you’ll like what he likes. You may get frustrated by the book and won’t read ever again.
So what can you do in such a situation? It’s better that “YOU” do not to develop of taste. Read anything and just anything you get. Slowly it’ll become a habit and you’ll love reading. I did that. I always want people to read. Even if I know a book is bad, I stay away from making a comment. At the same time whatever others say, If I want to read a book I read it.
This exercise called reading not only trains your brain but increases your knowledge. This gives you a chance to show off at times. :angel:
