1. You are never ever bored.
Life can be really boring at times. The mundane tasks are most boring. Sitting in a waiting room at a doctor’s office, riding a bus or Uber…these are the times where bringing a book along remedies the boring fact of waiting. I always bring a book with me when I leave the house, two if I am close to finishing the current one.
2. You live in a variety of worlds.
A book is not just bound pages with words printed in ink. A good book brings you to another world, providing an escape from our chaotic lives. Reading brings you on adventures and one develops a vivid imagination. Using your imagination, you can travel there whenever you please. My mind takes me through various adventures that I read. You get to live different lives.
3. Expanded vocabulary.
With constant reading and a wide genre of books, we often pick up new vocabulary words. I look up words that I am unfamiliar. This means readers always have perfect and unique words to describe everything.
4. You have an endless conversation starters.
Books are filled with more than adventures. Many have lessons and/or issues. Almost every book I have read brings up something that can be used to begin a conversation.
5. Reading opens a door to a new world of imagination .
I have met many readers through my years of reading. You have instant bonding with those who read and enjoy the same books as you. Being friends with fellow book lovers saves you the embarrassment when you begin jumping up and down in public about a new book release …I have done it. People looked at me like I was crazy. Not only do you now have an open door to new book loving friends, but authors as well. I have met so many amazing readers and authors alike.
6. You have a never-ending reading list.
This holds true for almost every book lover I know. We discover many new books to add to it. Book recommendations are always welcome and given freely, introducing you to books you may have never heard of before.
