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!

Benefits of Reading Books:
The brain in your pocket: Evidence that Smartphones are used to supplant thinking:
Reading Literary Fiction Improves Theory of Mind

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.

    True. Ive seen people brag about how many books they have read for weeks or months. I tried it too but didnt go well. Im not a fast reader type of person. they are great i envy them but Im much comfortable reading slowly. then write my thoughts after every chapter. if fast i prefer listening to audiobook 😃

  • Anti

    Some great books I recommend are Alex Rider, Percy Jackson, Artemis Fowl, Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings, The witch, the wizard and the wardrobe and a really cool book, the dangerous book for boys which has history, skills, how to make stuff, information about animals, etc.

    to the people reading books, i reccoment the book “Speak” by Laurie Anderson. its a pretty good book. it covers up a bunch of things that people or even you have been through. (dark things) my english teacher and my teacher has been reading this book together as a class, and so far, its pretty good.👍🏼

    I got into reading when around 5th to 6th grade but got really into reading in 7th. I enjoyed the entertainment side of reading, stuff like action, sc-fi or fantasy. I'm still reading a bunch till this very day.

    If I must choose a book to be me favorite, I’d have to say The Shining by Stephen King. All I’ll say is there’s a reason he is called the king instead of just King.

    I mean ik no one is gonna see this i just wanna say I really love fantasy, sci fi and In general books that can take you into another world. A series I really like is wings of fire by tui. T Sutherland . School books that try to stuff info that doesn't help in the long run are just for going over for tests and either giving them to someone or like me and the boys do every end of the year, use them as food for fire in my friends backyard and burn the bugs( especially spiders ) or make them fight over the flames on a stick.(yes, we are imbeciles when it comes to fun.) What im trying to get at is ya dont need to keep every book you have until school ends. Either give it away or let it burn.

    Anything by Robert Green my personal Favorite is "The Art Of Seduction." This kinda sucks because I love my audible account where I just lay down turn the lights off and "read" a book. Maybe it's just me but I remember passages from books from audible more then if I ACTUALLY read the book. Is anyone else like that?

    Self help book. Nope ... I love . In Spanish Los Pilares de la Tierra (though I know its original language is English i just read it in my mother tongue, talking about the easy way out) . In English I believe Cold fire a good fiction book that give me something I haven't seen in years, an unexpected history, one that I could not figure it out until I read it till the end. It depends of what you like, there is nothing like having a book, the feel the smell everything, I do love to read, though to be honest my preferences are mostly juvenile

    this will be like a guide to guide anyone thru out the year


    for example a student that want to improve in his studies can have his entire year theme around studying and should use any oppurtunities to study but also would never go overboard to just study.


    or just make your entire year a theme
