I’ve been getting myself to read more. I finally finished a book that I started months ago. The strange thing is that the book was one of the best books I’ve ever read, yet it still took me so long to read. I’m going to check out another book tomorrow, and I’ll see how long that will take me.
My eyes are always glued to the television. It’s “easier” to just sit on the couch mindlessly than to sit in a chair reading word after word. But reading takes you deeper into a story. You feel like you’re actually in someone else’s shoes (in first-person novels) or you’re a close friend to the protagonist.
The point of this post is basically to get me to read more. When I was younger, I would write tons of stories (a majority without endings). My computer is filled with old documents from years ago. It’s weird how I always loved to write, but I couldn’t get myself to read. I want to publish my own novel someday, and maybe my story will get someone like me to read more.
My eventual goal is to read the entire Harry Potter series (since everyone I know seems to have already accomplished that as an elementary school student…). I’ve already watched all the movies.
