“The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you’ll go.”
– Dr. Suess
In middle school, I hated class, so I’d always keep a book under my desk to secretly read. I’d even be reading during lunch.
No one would talk to me, when they did they weren’t always nice. Reading was an escape for me, a time to put my self in the narrators shoes and get lost in a book.
I believe reading has a strong positive effect on people. I’ve been taught a lot of wisdom by many books. When reading you learn more about the world, you learn about others and improve your creativity and imagination.
My favorite author is Fredik Backman. I’ve read 4 books of his, they are beautiful and they truly teach you a lot. His book “A man called Ove” is about a grumpy old man who on the inside has a big heart. It was one of the best books I’ve ever read and it taught meso much about compassion.
There are so much different options for what to read about, you can read fiction or non-fiction, fantasy or realistic fiction. If you don’t enjoy reading, trust me I guarantee that somewhere there is at least one book you will enjoy. For anyone struggling with any kind of situation or mental illness, I always will suggest reading as an amazing coping strategy.
“Anyone who stops learning is old, whether at twenty or eighty. Anyone who keeps learning stays young. The greatest thing in life is to keep your mind young. “
Start reading today, you will find some peace in doing so.
