So today in biology, some friends and I were discussing how people think and the difference amongst individuals in the way that they think. It was then that a friend and I began discussing what we see when we read books. Yes you read that right what we see when we read books. When I read a book I become completely drawn into the world that is being described to the point that when I read it feels like a movie playing in my head, yet it is a movie that can last for a very long time particularly with series of books.
It was then that I realised just how important it is for me to read as I have ever since I was very young. Reading gives you a sense of fulfilment like nothing else I have come across. Personally reading has allowed me to become a functional part of society. Dr Ben Carson who is a world renowned neurosurgeon become who he is today only thanks to his mothers insistence on reading when he was a kid. Dr Carson has since become a strong proponent of reading amongst young people as it opens doors that were once closed through it giving you knowledge that can only be acquired through reading and also providing a method for your brain to without your knowledge become stronger in many ways. Through reading almost anything is possible and when you look at many influential people in the world you are shown that they are all individuals who as young people read profusely.
“It was then that I realised just how important it is for me to read as I have ever since I was very young.”
However it would surprise you to realise just how many people struggle to or cannot read as either their parents did not believe in reading or they have a disability that inhibits their ability to read. Yes not all information is acquired through reading and there is not the ability to immerse oneself in these worlds within books through audiobooks however personally I believe that reading is an essential tool in order to be able to access the world that we live in successfully.
