Why I Fell in Love with Reading

Έγινε ενημέρωση: 18 Σεπ 2022

I strongly believe that reading should once more become a trend, since its beneficial influence is scientifically proven.

I was very young when it happened. I just took the book in my hands and I instantly fell in love with reading. I couldn’t think anything else but finishing this book. I remember going trough it pages in a mad pace, not being able to think of anything else. I was only 5 years old.

Of course, both my parents and especially my mother were constantly reading me books day after day, feeding me with imaginative stories since I was born. I strongly believe that this was a critical reason why I love reading so much. Later on, as I was growing up, I remember my father always holding a book in his hands, constantly learning something new. Despite the fact that my siblings didn’t get that reading habit as I did, growing up in a reading environment in general played a vital role. I thought that that was what I also should do in life: Read.

In some of the most hard, difficult and disappointing moments and times of my life, I found a great consolation in living a different tale each time, following the protagonists of each book closely to their adventures. There were times that I cared more about the worlds that went vivid in the books I read than about the world outside of them. I guess I am just addicted that way. But is a sweet addiction. The only one that doesn’t hurt you along the way but provides you with remarkable gifts.

What are this gifts, you may ask. Well, I most certainly don’t have the answer, since I am convinced that for each person that has this kind of addiction, the benefits of reading are quite different. I can confide to you the top five benefits I get out of reading all these years. If you like, comment below this article and tell me about yours.
