Why you should READ LESS*


*as in putting less pressure on yourself with how MANY books you read, but rather focusing on the QUALITY of what you read. Basically, quality over quantity (as is the case with many things in life). Enjoy!

Benefits of Reading Books:
The brain in your pocket: Evidence that Smartphones are used to supplant thinking:
Reading Literary Fiction Improves Theory of Mind

Some might read the title of the video and think "oh, cool, I don't have to read, I wasn't going to anyway". If that's the case, I suggest you watch the entire video first. Reading is very important, it has many benefits for your brain, and unfortunately, school prepares us from a young age to see reading as a chore or as something unpleasant. Then there's the other type of people who only read Personal Development and Self Help books, and that's mainly who I'm targeting with this video. The Self Help industry is making billions of dollars every year, often selling sub-par written content that gives the illusion of personal growth. There's so much more value in a novel, or a history book, than you will ever find in the average Self-improvement book. So although I'm talking about why you should read less, the moral of the story - spoiler alert - is why you should read more, or why you should be more selective with the type of books you're reading. Looking forward to the conversation in the comment section.

    When I was younger I read so many books. But I didn’t read them in hopes of making me smarter. I read them because, quite frankly I had no friends to hangout with and I had nowhere to go. I read almost every book that interested me and it ended up helping me tremendously in school. It helped me cause I either read the book so it was easier to summarize or it helped me with my writing. But once I realized how much it helped I started to read more, “better” or “smarter” books but it just made me kind of hate reading. I still don’t read as much as I did before (I used to read so much I read while eating and it was hard not to. Now I use my phone 😔) anyways. Moral of the story, don’t force yourself to read. Just read books that you would want to read. Reading is for enjoyment that just comes with a couple of benefits just like a lot of hobbies.

    I mean ik no one is gonna see this i just wanna say I really love fantasy, sci fi and In general books that can take you into another world. A series I really like is wings of fire by tui. T Sutherland . School books that try to stuff info that doesn't help in the long run are just for going over for tests and either giving them to someone or like me and the boys do every end of the year, use them as food for fire in my friends backyard and burn the bugs( especially spiders ) or make them fight over the flames on a stick.(yes, we are imbeciles when it comes to fun.) What im trying to get at is ya dont need to keep every book you have until school ends. Either give it away or let it burn.

    Self help book. Nope ... I love . In Spanish Los Pilares de la Tierra (though I know its original language is English i just read it in my mother tongue, talking about the easy way out) . In English I believe Cold fire a good fiction book that give me something I haven't seen in years, an unexpected history, one that I could not figure it out until I read it till the end. It depends of what you like, there is nothing like having a book, the feel the smell everything, I do love to read, though to be honest my preferences are mostly juvenile
