5. Helps you connect with people you wouldn't have otherwise
Reading has allowed me to connect with people all over the world but also connect more with my family members and friends that do read. It has allowed me to participate in great discussions in my life that I wouldn't have been exposed to. Reading has opened me into a whole new community of readers in general and into the literary world/community. It also opened me up into the blogging world and made me found a whole new passion of mine in blogging itself. I have met hundreds of people alone just from blogging and talking about books that I wouldn't have otherwise. I am beyond grateful for the connections that I have made through reading and books!
6. Best form of entertainment
To me, reading is my favorite form of entertainment and passes the time when I am bored. Reading allows me to not be bored anymore. In a lot of ways, it is the cheapest form of entertainment too. If you use the library it is completely free! Which there are not a lot of things these days that you can do for free that are still super fun but free/cheap!
7. Books make me happy
When life can be stressful, nothing calms me down or makes me happy like books can. Books literally help my mental health/mental illness. My depression and anxiety are always automatically better after reading a good book. NOTHING BRINGS ME JOY LIKE BOOKS! Reading calms my stress/stressful situations experienced throughout the day. Reading brightens my day and gives me something to look forward to.8. Experience happily ever afters in a world of sadness and chaos
“Frodo: I wish the Ring had never come to me. I wish none of this had happened.
Gandalf: So do all who live to see such times, but that is not for them to decide. All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given to us.”“The world is indeed full of peril, and in it there are many dark places; but still there is much that is fair, and though in all lands love is now mingled with grief, it grows perhaps the greater.”
