Today I am focused on those who say, “But I just don’t like to read!” I hope by the end of this, I will have convinced you to give some type of reading a try.
First of all, here are some reasons to spend just TWENTY minutes reading. Some of you are not students, I know, but I figure the stats are similar for adults reading as well:
Then, if your excuse is, “I just don’t know what to read!” You can start with this list. I am in the middle of the Harry Potter series, and will soon read Gone with the Wind.
For those who say, “I don’t have time to read.” Remember, just 20 minutes a day. These are some the shortest books, which means with 20 minutes a day, you could get two books read in a week!
In case you’re still protesting that you don’t read well, or just don’t enjoy reading, here’s a list of audio books to start you out on your reading quest. It mentions that having a good narrator is key to enjoying the book, and I completely agree with this! The audio books for Harry Potter, by J. K. Rowling, are also one that I completely recommend. It is wonderful when a narrator can perform all voices for every character. In my previous post I mentioned Overdrive, which can be connected to your local library, and I use this All. The. Time.
