I Love to read.
That doesn’t mean I don’t have a life.
It doesn’t mean I’m a nerd.
I only love the feeling that…
even when you’re back in reality
you still feel like you’re in a
What a great quote to start off Wednesday! Why do you guys love to read?
I honestly don’t think people read enough. The ever growing use of technology has changed how we view and read things! I don’t mind using my kindle to read new books, or even older ones. The convenience of being able to carry and download hundreds of books as you go outweighs the use of paperbacks. I mean, can you imagine packing for a four week holiday and how many books you’re sure to read during that time?
Now, I am by no means saying I dislike paperbacks. I love them just as much. That smell of a freshly printed book – or those old musty scented ones that fill the space in a bookshop is just simply delicious. But when you run a book blog, and read over 5/10 books a month, those paperbacks take up space!
Subsequently, I had to (sadly) pack up my bookshelf when we where designing my sons nursery. There was simply no space for a full to bursting book shelf with a new baby on the way! But he was worth it obviously! In the future, I hope to have a larger house with plenty of room for my books. (If not I’ll throw the kids away! – *joking* for those of you who take life to seriously)
I love reading to the point where it became this blog. I love taking a book with me anywhere and everywhere. I hate how there is still a stigma attached to reading. And as this quote says, just because I read it doesn’t make me a nerd. My son has a little library in his bedroom, just two shelves along the wall filled to the brim with books. Some classics like The Tale of Peter Rabbit, and The Very Hungry Caterpillar – to newer ones featuring Peppa Pig and Paw Patrol. But do you know what his favourite thing to do is?
Every day that little boy grabs a handful of books and shoves them at either myself or his dad and sits and waits for us to tell the story to him. I started to read to him when he was just 4 months old and I’d like to think that he will continue this love books into adulthood.
There is nothing wrong with reading. It teaches us new things, it takes us on adventures some of us could never dream of. If you love it – do it.! ♥
