Top 5 Reasons I Love Reading…
Exploring new worlds
Every time you pick up a new book, you’re invited into a whole new world – created just for you by the author (and your imagination). Who didn’t love exploring their own private island with the Famous Five as a child? Middle Earth with Bilbo and Frodo? Made up or real, it’s basically an opportunity for cheap travel.
Some characters sure do worm their way into your heart… You feel you know them so well, they’re almost like old friends. Love that.
Learning new things
I like learning new things. And everytime I pick up a book, even a rubbish one, I learn something. Maybe it’s a different way to do dialogue, a new skill, a word, or how to process a situation. Reading challenges you in ways you wouldn’t expect.
Books with magical themes, sure. But also, those books which just have a magical quality… That little sparkle. We all need more magic in the world, in my opinion.
Is there anything better than that feeling when you’re just so absorbed, completely lost in, a book?
