My book collectionWe are living in a generation wherein cellphones, tablets, laptops and gadgets matter the most. Having the latest model of iPhone, Samsung, apple products and any other gadget brands would mean that you are in trend amongst any other on your peer. Youngsters are very much inclined with these technologies. Having them at hand would mean so much for them. One of the reasons would be that their surrounding demanded it, plus the factors that the mass and social media brings into them.

I have nothing against with these technologies, in fact I am very thankful for the benefits and advantages that they bought in our lives. But let us not forget about the things that we use to do before the appearance of these technologies. Reading for example.

With the kind of living we have, seeing someone holding a book and solemnly reading it is a very rare situation. Most of us especially the young ones are very much inclined with their gadgets to the point that we have forgotten how to have quality time with our books. We should always put in mind the importance and benefits that it may bring us.

I, personally speaking had come to the point where in reading bores me. That I would rather choose my phone or tablet rather than my books. But I think I was born to be forever in love with books, and that draws us together. Loving book is innate to me. I still remember how I love going at the library every after my class. I will not go home from mall without a newly buy book on hand. These books help in building my dreams, it also plays an important role in nurturing, molding my behavior. It became my teacher, mentor or even counselor. These are some of the things that reading does to me. These are only some of the things that a person can get by engaging or committing his/herself with them. Let me elaborate the benefits and advantages of having a long time commitment with these books.


1. Reading satisfies ones satiety

If food serves us with energy, then reading serves as a food for our brain. They feed an individual’s hungry mind. They serves as an electron flowing within our vain that brings excitement in our system. People are innate doubtful, and when you are doubtful you always in search of answers. When you read you tend to know more things, details and information that fulfill our intrigued mind. People has wide satiety for information. For things that others think are difficult to answer. A book a day or a week can avoid you from boredom and unchangeable life. When a person stop reading he/she become stagnant. Stagnant to the things that she already know and he/she misses the chance to learn more. A person who do not read tend to have a more unproductive and boring life than those who reads. It do not only feeds you but as well as your hungry mind. It gives unexplainable excitement that leads a person to continue reading, this excitement helps in building ones desire or passion with reading. It encourages and excites a person resulting to eagerly turn each page.


2. Reading a key to a continuous and productive conversation.

People love talking to those who are not only smart looking but as well as talking smartly, or better to say those who knows how to bring fire within the conversation. Reading will not only keep you from being stagnant from the details and information. It also enhances your vocabulary, gives you a wide array of words that you will not hear in a layman conversation. In having a conversation you must put in mind that it is better to carry a bullet words rather than not to carry anything at all. We also need to accept the fact that as we grow our satiety and hungriness for information and words also grows. In fulfilling those, reading is a good source.


3. Reading is a free travel ticket round the world.

Reading can bring you to the places that you are dreaming of. Even if it is a mind created land or a real one. When you read you tend to know more places and books are made to describe those places. Their geographical appearance, status, climate, history, behavioral adaptation and even the way they look years before. Your books serves as a free travel ticket around the world, so if you are planning to travel someday beginning it with a book is a good start.


4. Reading is one way of continuous learning.

As read you tend to learn more things. You tend to enhance not only your vocabulary but as well as your knowledge. Most of our well known and famous people got their knowledge not by entering and graduating with a degree but with their commitment with books. Books provide them with continuous information, data and learning. People may get old but not the books and the knowledge and information that it encompasses, that they will surely pass into one another.


5. Books will never get tired of you.

People, organizations, peers and even crowds may get tired of you. They might throw in just a snap of a hand, whatever you have built up together with them. They might leave you along the way. They may betrayed you and even not acknowledge you. But books are not like them, they will not leave you, they will stay with you forever. They will never get tired of you no matter what happen they will not break the commitment that you have with them. They might even help you to pass whatever you both know to your descendants. Committing yourself with them means engaging a long time and solid relationship with them, your books.

Those are only some of the reason I love reading. Why I love and will always be forever IN-LOVE with BOOKS. Aside from the fact that the whole world will leave me, they might not believe me but not my books but instead they will help me and teach me. Happiness is when I am able to read. When I am able to build my dreams and to uphold them in the future.

I hope this blog helps you to remember how important reading for every one of us. How they might change your life. I am not saying that you should drop off your gadgets, what I am saying is put it down for a while and commit yourself to your books. A two to three hours of reading will not hurt you. So commit yourself and surely they will commit their self to you FOREVER.
