10 Reasons why I love Reading

Image source:

I saw this picture on a blog and I couldn't stop laughing! It reminded me of Nigerian home videos that use almost thirty minutes to show different adverts for upcoming movies and commercials before the main movie even starts. I read because of the following reasons:

1.  I can. :p (It's sad how many can't read because of  inadequate resources, funds or national crisis)

2. It provides a way of escape (although short-lived). It's sometimes easier to lose myself in a book that to face reality.

3. I love it!!!

4. It offers me the opportunity to let loose my imagination, be fearless with no regard for anyone's feelings

5. I want to be powerful (Laughs). My elementary teacher told me that Knowledge is power so I want to know as much as I can.

6. It is way better than staring at the ceiling or trying to understand the logic behind the dry joke the guy across from me is saying .

7. I have nothing better to do :D

8. I want to know

9. I'm too lazy to switch on the TV

10. It's a family trait (My Dad still wakes up at night to read his papers, my Mom and Grandma their bibles and inspirational books, don't know what my brothers read - but read... They do!)

"For this very reason, make every effort to supplement your faith with virtue, and virtue with knowledge..."

  1. I've never been a book's weird I'd read a LOT of blogs but put it in a book and you might scare me. lol

    1. Lol! I can imagine. I guess Reading is Reading! As long as we are learning something new from it. In fact you could call the blogs you read mini eBooks *winks*

  2. =D =D ♒ђåª•ђåª•ђåª♒=D =D.....reading is soooo much fun! currently reading "Americanah" by Chimamanda and every second away from d book seems like time being wasted!...:D

    1. I totally agree with you; reading is fun! &
      I refuse to be jealous of you because I haven't gotten round to buying that book yet. I should rectify that soon :)!

  3. I just love reading...hard copy or soft copy,I just love reading.
    Tho am getting lazy these days.

    Good to have you back.

  4. Don't worry dear you are not alone. I am an unrepentant r leader,I can read anytime and anywhere,I love reading. Something weird just happened lately, In my church a library was opened for the children church, Guess what? me and two other teachers (who are ardent readers) read those books more than the children! lol.

  5. LOL @ unrepentant reader!!! I'm sure if my Church opens a children's library that I will do the same too *winks*. Thank you :)!

  6. Do I even have to say how much I love books? I read two on the go and usually finish about 4 each month. Bliss!

  7. I used to read more and widely when I was much younger...dunnoo why it reduced...reading surely widens your horizon and its power!
