I can hear you say how we can love reading books. One of the problems of our age: not being able to read a book! I realize how much we waste our time. Mobile phones in our hands, computers in front of us, social media steals our time. I don’t need to explain how precious our time is. Everyone likes to dream, to think, to understand, to talk to each other. Or pretends to like it. I say pretends because it is necessary to read to love all this. Before discussing the reasons for this, let’s learn about how we can love and enjoy reading books.
Before we start reading, we need to know what kind of books we want to read and what interests us. Before shopping for books, we should definitely get book recommendations from our environment. After doing a little research, we will discover our own interests.
If we want to make a habit of reading books, instead of choosing books with a heavy subject, we should choose books with a fine, flowing story.
We should not be distracted while reading a book. For this reason, the light, atmosphere, silence of the environment and the comfort of our place are very important.
We should take time to read for 1 hour every day. Although it is difficult at first, reading books will become a habit overtime.
Isn’t it how normal for us to waste our free time buried in our phones for hours surfing on social media. However, there are many things that can add to us by spending those free times reading. Culture, knowledge, imagination…
The author is as important as the type of the book we will read. Written language and expression of a writer influence the reader. We should know the authors of the books we love and follow the other books of those authors. By doing this, we can love to read and make it a habit.
Attention is very significant when reading a book. Reading and underlining the parts that we are affected by and that we think are important to us will increase both our concentration and reasoning ability.
One of the basics of making a habit of reading books is not to leave the book halfway through. We cannot achieve success by starting another book without finishing the other one, getting bored with it and moving on to another book. As I said in the first point, we must determine the genre we will love.
Let’s not forget to visit book fairs with our friends and family. We must support each other in this regard. By doing this, we can love to read books and make it a habit.
