To begin with, I wanted to talk about the importance of reading and how it benefits everyday life. I know that some people think that reading is just another thing to worry about or that it may feel like an unnecessary chore, however this is not the case.
I was once told, “If you don’t like reading, then you haven’t found the right book yet.” I honestly think that in books and stories, there is something for everyone. You can learn about a gruesome past, a distant future that needs help saving or an enchanting fairy-tale. Books (like people) are incredibly diverse and you can read about anything and everything.
Reading is a way to immerse yourself in a great story and travel to a new place when unable to go out. You meet new people (in the form of characters) and feel as if you are truly there watching the events unfold.
Reading helps benefit:
In class, we have decided to take part in a reading journey “around the world”. Without leaving our homes, we have found a new and exciting way to take a trip all over Earth. For every ten minutes of reading we do, it accounts to 500 miles (one step) closer to our different destinations. It has helped us realise how much reading we do and enables us to take time to relax and spend time doing something away from technology.
Along with our passports, we are creating fun and imaginative time lapse videos of ourselves reading which will be made into an entertaining montage. We have all been thinking of unusual ways to make them exciting, such as dressing up, reading in unusual places or with our beloved pets!
If you don’t enjoy reading, keep looking for the perfect book for you and take note of how often you read. Remember that reading is fun and something to enjoy!
