I’ve always been a reader, although I will admit, not as much as I was when I was much younger. I’ve started to pick it back up again these last 2 years, more so this year and thanks to my boyfriend!
Before, I always made the excuse as the older I got of, “I can’t make the time, I’m too busy etc”, but really it’s all just BS! Plus, for some reason, we are taught that we must read one book at a time or only start a new book when finished with another. So for a long time, I wouldn’t pick up a new book, even though I was excited about it because I hadn’t finished the one I was currently reading! Kinda limits you, no? My wonderful boyfriend showed me this article: Everything I Knew About Reading Was Wrong | Hacker Noon
After reading the article, my mind was blown! This particular quote really resonated with me, “The right book for the right person is not enough. It needs to be the right book, for the right person at the right time.” I’ve taken that to heart and have begun reading on the kind of mood I’m in. I’ve found it helps me immerse myself more in the book as well as enjoy the story more! The article also expands on how it’s ok to quit books you’re not really into at the moment and start reading the book(s) you really want! It’s a pretty cool mindset to practice and is helping me read more!
What do you guys think about this article? Anything in there that you do currently or have any other tips about reading? I’d love to know!
