I love reading. I love fantasy stories. But something I have put off a lot recently is to read books that will further my knowledge.
A lot of people will turn to information online, but I really despise reading books on my computer or on my phone (especially my phone). The feel of the book in my hand just makes it so different of an experience. There’s the smell, the ability to read as long as you have light and not worrying about a device dying, and just something about the print on paper (I think it has to do with appreciating the typography and layout that goes into a book).
Don’t get me wrong, I look a lot of information up online myself. There are a couple of blogs that I read that have fascinating information.
Anyways, my preferred source of information is books. And I just have not been keeping up on that. So, keeping with one of my goals, I am reading at least one book a month. I’m toying with making it one non-fiction book and one fiction book so I don’t get too heavily into the learning and forget to read for fun.
I encourage everyone else to read at least one book a month as well. It may not be your preferred method of getting information, but it’s a way that you can focus on the information without notification from Facebook popping up. It’s also easier for you to look back at information if you own the book. You don’t have to look through a bunch of links that you have saved.
