I cannot fully express in words just how much I love reading & why….but here it goes. I am so thankful that my mother took me to the library to check out books weekly when I was little because now , I consider that a treasured hobby. Matter of fact, I still have an active public library card that I use for non-school related reasons as well because I have found some great reads there. I use to read mostly fantasy books, but now I also read a lot of non-fiction as well. I am interested in all kinds of topics ranging from history of all sorts, science, to biographies. If I really want to gain a lot of different interesting knowledge within one power book…then I read from encyclopedias. Lately, I have been in to a lot of science books, so Michio Kaku is one of my latest favorite authors. I don’t know why I haven’t did any blog entries about books yet, but I feel obligated to now. Reading is a mind treasure because it can really enhance you mentally & the right book can make you get lost inside it’s pages, intriguing you. If I had to choose between having my phone all day or a great book, than I would choose the book. Not to mention, when you read books on interesting topics, you open your mind up to knowing so much more. For an example, I love conversing about different topics & reading different kinds of books can help you have more amazing conversations. I always choose a different topic or person that I am into at the time & then start reading about it. For an example, recently I read Rat Pack Confidential by Shawn Levy, Physics Of The Future by Michio Kaku, Dracula by Bram Stoker, and Space Atlas: Mapping The Universe & Beyond by James Trefil. I prefer having the physical copies of books rather than an ebook because I like to collect hardback versions of my favorites. I encourage people to still pick up a book and let your mind discover new adventures and page-turners. It is most definitely worth it.
