Why you should READ LESS*

*as in putting less pressure on yourself with how MANY books you read, but rather focusing on the QUALITY of what you read. Basically, quality over quantity (as is the case with many things in life). Enjoy!

#Books #OneBookAWeek #Reading

Some might read the title of the video and think "oh, cool, I don't have to read, I wasn't going to anyway". If that's the case, I suggest you watch the entire video first. Reading is very important, it has many benefits for your brain, and unfortunately, school prepares us from a young age to see reading as a chore or as something unpleasant. Then there's the other type of people who only read Personal Development and Self Help books, and that's mainly who I'm targeting with this video. The Self Help industry is making billions of dollars every year, often selling sub-par written content that gives the illusion of personal growth. There's so much more value in a novel, or a history book, than you will ever find in the average Self-improvement book. So although I'm talking about why you should read less, the moral of the story - spoiler alert - is why you should read more, or why you should be more selective with the type of books you're reading. Looking forward to the conversation in the comment section.

*5000 Facts About Everything Part 2* I read almost every fact in the book. I think it's made for kids, but I mean it's interesting lots of facts. Also some were really useful, some left like what!! I'm not sure if there are still copies being sold.

I am a bibliophile, I like collecting books for myself, but I don't read books like it's my energy or sth. No, I read for my own entertainment, if I don't feel like reading today, I won't force myself. then it's easier to analyze the books you read and you feel less pressure. also, don't force yourself to read books, that are usually very "important". Not everyone will love Dostojevski, Not everyone will love Dante's book "Divine comedy" and more... and that's ok.

Favorite book: The Enemy by Charlie higson I think. Very good fiction series, follows a bunch of kids trying to survive in a world where everyone over 15 suddenly became a zombie-esk thing. Very gory but still has good vocab and development.

It's actually a very interesting topic and I too thought reading was useless. Ironically, I read a lot as a child like 10 novels in 5 months. That aside, my book recommendation would be the Silver Sword. It showcases the struggle of a Polish family during a war and how they all tried to get back together. Most of the family were in prison or their health was diminishing rapidly. It also shifts the perspective of which character you're reading about flawlessly. It's a terrific book by Ian Serraillier and I definitely recommend it.

5:52 Is it just me or does this line make no sense? My interpretation is that it's basically saying: "Intuitive thinking as opposed to Analytic thinking is a form of cognitive laziness" (pretty much what the word means), and out of nowhere they draw the conclusion that googling things is a part of this. They do this yet they don't seem to explain why getting facts from looking it up is related to it - especially when research like that is very important to analytical though - nor do they explain why alternatives are better. Why is relying on facts and external sources a form of cognitive miserliness? Is it lazy to look up facts to back up your argument? Is it lazy to get the answers you want and draw your own conclusions about it instead of... whatever nonexistent alternative that they have yet to provide?

This is the wake up call I needed omg. I got into reading English books about 6 years ago and the first book I read was ‘if you could see me now’. The book was so highly confusing (I process stuff really slowly) that it took me two months just to finish the book. But after finishing that book holy crap it was like something clicked in my brain and my English started to improve basically overnight. Then others around me also started reading and I would often be made fun of because I take a long time to finish each individual book. By the third year I’d would finish a book with 400 pages within two weeks but I could not remember a single thing about whatever I’ve read. It was really stupid because I can still remember the contents of the first book I ever read but I can’t seem to visualise what I read literally last week. My English skills were stagnant at this point no matter the amount of books I was forcing into my brain and reading became kinda boring. Thank you for this video. It was truly an eye opener and the slap in the head that I needed.

For the record I’m only 1:41 in but I’d just like to say, even as an advent book reader/ bookworm, when it comes to reading read if you want to and just read what you like. I can tell you from personal experience that if the book doesn’t interest you it’s pointless trying to finish it. It’ll be harder to instigate picking up the book to read, boring, you won’t really absorb what you’re reading, and in the end you’re just wasting time doing something that you don’t enjoy. Besides reading as a hobby isn’t for everyone. So feel like you’re some kind of loser if you don’t read a lot or if you’re a slow reader. ^^

My very cliché and basic recommendations: 1984, Animal Farm (George Orwell/Eric Blair, both have been read in French), And Then There Were None (Agatha Christie, I’ve read it in French), The Haunting of Hill House (a very contemplative book and a different kind of horror, by Shirley Jackson, which I have read in English)
