Why I Love Reading #TopTenTuesday

This week’s Top Ten Tuesday topic is:

Reasons Why I Love Reading

  1. It’s a cheap way to travel. And especially in these times where I’m not sure about being on an airplane right now, I get to travel the world in books
  2. It helps me go to sleep. I sometimes watch some Netflix or other streaming stuff before bed but the last thing I do before turning out the light is to read.
  3. It lets me see the world from different perspectives. That’s why I’m glad that we are able to read from more diverse writers in recent years.
  4. An appreciation for the written word. When you read that sentence or paragraph that moves you, that makes you reread it to just appreciate how it’s written!
  5. It stimulates your imagination. This especially applies to speculative fiction and how writers work on world-building. But it begins right from childhood, and how imaginative and creative some picture book writers and illustrators are.
  6. Knowledge. I don’t often read nonfiction, but when I do, there’s so many interesting and new information that just comes pouring though those books.
  7. It’s entertaining. Books can be funny, exciting, scary, thrilling, and all that’s happening is that you’re reading words.
  8. It helps reduce your risk of dementia. Yes, that’s some years away, but it’s always a good reason to read.
  9. Because plenty of times, the book is better than the movie/TV series.
  10. It’s a good workout for the brain!
