One thing I like to do in my spare time is read. Lately, I have been so busy that I have had to either not read at all, or read and lose sleep because of it. For me, that is a really hard choice. I love to read, but I also love my sleep. Especially on weeknights. So, I am currently reading at a speed of 1 book for every 2-ish weeks instead of 1 book for every 1-2 days. I can’t say enough how ready for summer I am!
I definitely agree with this statement. Every time people say that they feel like reading is a chore, or that they “just aren’t a reader”, I inwardly disagree with them. If you don’t like to read, you are doing something wrong! Maybe you just haven’t found the right book yet.😉
This quote is perfect, because there are so many different worlds, time eras, and cultures right at your fingertips when you read a book. There are many, many things that me, my mom, and my sisters would not know if we didn’t read. Our vocabularies have been stretched (even if we don’t know how to pronounce half the words, lol😂 #readerproblems), our understanding of people has grown, and our knowledge of the world around us has broadened. So, if you don’t read, you should definitely try it sometime. You just may like it.😄
