Resolve to read a good book today. You'll be surprised at what you find.

Resolve to read a good book today. You'll be surprised at what you find.SocialTwist Tell-a-Friend
I am a reader, I have been a reader since I was a child. I didn't have an easy childhood, so I took refuge in the worlds that I was transported to while in a book. I have an amazing imagination and often after I'd finished reading a book- I'd continue the story in my mind- especially if I didn't like the ending. And though I didn't realize it at the time. A lot of the books I read, shaped my mind and the way I thought even as I was a child. Through it all I soaked in knowledge about everything and anything- depending on what the book was about.

The first reason why you should read a book today, is because; authors take the time to research and write what they think and know of the world around them. So in effect when you read a book- you're benefiting from someone else's experience- without having to go through the sometimes-nasty-things they had to go through to get that experience.

Secondly, it give you a different point of view of seeing the world and life (and hopefully a better point of view) you could be struggling to find a solution to a problem and then when you read a book- you look at it from a different point of view and you realize that your solution was right in front of you.

Thirdly, reading distracts you, and at some point we all need to be distracted and forget the outside world for just a few hours.

The book you read could be about anything and everything really. I read all sorts of books, mystery, romance (sometimes), motivational, instructional and sometimes I read fairytales- the brothers Grimm are an excellent choice. And I do that because sometimes I get overwhelmed by adult content- by the complexities of life and I just need to read a book that will make me laugh and ease me. There's some nostalgically calming effect in reading children's stories and most of the time a lot of good lessons in them as well.

Resolve2day to read a book. Trust me, you’ll feel like a much better person at the end of this day.
