Don't Like Books?
I presume most people would rather watch a film or TV channel then pick up a classic or fiction book any day.
The thing about reading for me is that you get to create your own characters. You can make them fat with a long Dumbledore-type beard. Be creative and imaginative!!
If you think there are no books with similar interests or topics that you enjoy, you are extremely wrong. I have read plenty of books to know that lots of types of books can be really interesting. The genre of books that I enjoy are:
- Action and Adventure
- Play Scripts
- and more
Good books that I have read in the last few months are:
The Fault in Our Stars by John Green: it is really capturing and honest and spoke to me in ways I am sure some of you may understand.
I also have read The Hunger Games which is an action story by Suzanne Collins.
But books don't just tell us about made up places or random things from our imagination. They can teach us things (as corny as it sounds) like Harry Potter teaches you that friendship is stronger than the power of Tom Riddle, or that you need love to be powerful. Things like that can push you through hard times in life and teach you important lessons.
That's why I think all people can enjoy reading.
Sub-Ed's note: The Fault In Our Stars and The Hunger Games, as well as being awesome books, have both been featured in our Reading Power Virtual Book Club. If you enjoyed them then be sure to check out the other books we've covered, and pop along to a Sprout Editorial Meeting sometime (they're free and there are always biscuits!) to suggest something for our next read. We always love a good book!
