Information has become more concise and factual with the advent of social networks and blogs on the Internet. Undoubtedly, it saves human’s precious time. However, there are still people who are willing to devote most of their time to reading and not to consider it as a waste. Let us examine each of these points in detail.
My personal view is that reading books is the most meaningful part of our life. To begin with, while reading, we passively memorize the style of an author’s presentation of thoughts and correct sentence constructions.
Consequently, it teaches us to be eloquent and creative in producing your own aphorisms. Furthermore, reading short statements from the Internet cannot be authentic. There is a simple reason for this. A person who prepares extracts from books cannot analyze it objectively and provide the full amount of information.
Nevertheless, let us consider this problem from another angle. This point of view can be reflected in the quotation: ‘A person who has thoughtlessly read even great works can be compared to a bookcase’. Indeed, unconscious reading can be called a waste of time, because such a person does not remember and does not apply what has been read.
However, personally, I incline more to the opinion of the effectiveness of reading. As far as I am concerned, a sensible person devotes tremendous attention to what he reads. The fact is that book can help us to discover a way out of a disturbing question or just to empower yourself physically and spiritually.
To draw the conclusion, it should be observed that it depends on you whether your reading will be useful and delightful.
