Add Reading Habit

Ask me if I’m a reader? I wouldn’t hesitate to answer, a big ‘NO’. As a student I have never read by interest, few that I read was for book reviews that I am required for internal assessment in class. Reading books weren’t chapter in the book of my learning. If I scored well in subjects, I am done. I am intelligent. I am brilliant. This is what I thought. But that was a biased evaluation, a flawed judgment. If it’s at all possible to go back young, I would add reading as my personal elective subject besides usual subjects. If I am given a minute time to advise (more accurately suggest) students present and future, I would say, “add Reading Habit” in the league of their habits.

Press me if I’ve added Reading Habit now? I wouldn’t feel a tinge of hesitation and my eyes wouldn’t lie to answer, ‘yes but very lately’. But in this little period, I’ve learned that reading could be the best habit one could ever possess. It can be the best companion under rain and shine of life. It can be a medicine for illness. It can be a nurse for a health of mind. It can be a doctor for a mental health. We need to add Reading Habit to have a forever friend, a nurse and a doctor.

Reading makes one; a doctor, engineer, pilot, traveler, hiker, business tycoon, scientist, athlete, actor, and a whole gamut of glamorous professions one could ever dream to become. The reading makes it possible. Travelling across the globe is no huge hassle for a reader. Reading makes you travel at an unimaginable pace; without the knowledge you’re onboard, you land up in different worlds feasting your eyes with abundant beauty of the world. We need to add Reading Habit to become all-in-one.

There are so many challenges that are coming up; Book Bucket Challenge is one kind where you list top ten books you’ve read but your count not making to ten is a huge blow on the face of your Habits. I encountered this. I was nominated for BookBucket Challenge by my blogger friend Rima, I couldn't continue the challenge as my reads can never add up to ten. But I would do next Challenge. We need to add Reading Habit for challenges.

I have very little in me and travelled far and wide bluffing on reading. Never mind, I am a want-to-be good reader. I am spreading my arms with the hope that my friends could put in loop as many others to add Reading Habit. More than any one, parents and teachers across could be a locus point for this. Add Reading Habit to everyone to have most of the things if not everything.


Add Reading Habit.

Reading not necessary over a book. Blog post is also material for reading where people expressing out their different thinking which is unique and more varieties. So, just read anything that you love reading. Don't forget to study smart too at college ;) Have fun and take care!

  3. I too feel the same bro. Sometimes I think my English won't be this bad had I realized the value of reading sometimes when I was right in primary school. But now, just like you, I too have felt its importance and started reading. That should be better than never. So bro. let us now try to read as many as possible and fill up the cavity which we left I un-filled that time. Nice read bro

  4. I've always loved reading. I got addicted to it at a young age. I think my brain is better for it, although I have really bad vision and that's probably why!

  5. I have always loved reading, Sangay! I don't even remember a time when I couldn't read. It is one of my greatest pleasures in life. I think it is awesome that you are encouraging others to read, and that you shared your reading experiences. The more you read, the better you get, and it opens up the whole world to you. Happy reading!

  10. It isn't late to adopt any good habit. In fact, embracing reading habit at present age - I think - is a right time because we are well aware of the importance of books and its contents, words meanings and what 'reading' can help us to extract from those books. I mean we are well equipped now than before. So carry on reading, bro. There is no age limit for music and knowledge.

  12. That's the right attitude. Reading and me have mixed emotions. I am not a fan of reading but I know how important it is. I try to get a few books in a year.

  13. If reading becomes the part of everyday happenings, no doubt this place would become best place to remember for eternal...Nicely written Sangay sir.
    Similarly, a note to my students on world literacy day- a gift of food last for a day. a gift of cloth last hardly for a month but a gift of Book and reading last ever with life.
