Inspiration for Developing Reading Habit

How many of you can claim to be good readers? Plenty, eh?! If you are then, I must appreciate you because reading is fast becoming a vanishing art. Blame it on time constraints or advent of ebooks or plain lack of willingness but not many are left with inclination to indulge in deep, thoughtful reading habit. The situation has come to such a pass that, every other day we come across reading events being organized by some publishing companies or social organizations. There has been a significant decrease in print readership and some doomsayers are predicting the fall of print journalism.

This is not a healthy sign at all. What happened to the notion of ‘Good leaders are good readers’? Reading is more like a tool in our hands that must be sharpened and practiced on a regular basis. A famous writer had once revealed that ‘if we read for two hours every day on any subject, in five years, we would become national experts on that particular subject. And in ten years, we would have the equivalent of a Ph.D!’ that’s some food for thought. More so, if you manage to develop the habit of book reading, you will be several years ahead of an average person. The idea itself is tempting enough.

Book reading is the ultimate joy in life. It fills you with new hopes, and knowledge. It is a morale-boosting habit. Quality reading equips you with new perspectives. Moreover, it gives you enhanced dose of confidence knowing that you possess more knowledge and information than an average Joe. So what are you waiting for? Stop making any excuse and pick your favorite book lying in shelf for months untouched. Take the initiative and make a difference to your life.
