Since few days, I have come across a common question on Quora for sometime
Argument doesn’t win hearts
As far as I feel, an argument cannot win anyone’s mind or heart. It’s the way we speak to a person that can change their thoughts. Every person has their own choices. Reading a book should be fun and relaxing you from your day to day stressful life. Every book, every story is unique in itself. All the stories ever written has a different shades of life stored in them waiting for the readers like us to explore.
Passion towards Reading
Books are like your silent friends, who are always around you, and always ready to share some stories. There are billions of books around us; some can make you smile by their cute and naughtiness, some make you laugh by their ridiculous and stupid behavior, there are some that can make you blush by their love at first sight, there can even excite you when they share their passionate love with each other, some make you cry because of the heart-break, loneliness and sadness that they go through and many other human emotions captured and portrayed beautifully by the Authors who can shackle us for hours.
Books can change your life and way of thinking.
As I said in my “about me” page of my blog books have changed my life for good. I don’t know how many readers would believe me, but it’s true. There is a part of my life that I don’t like to discuss, a part where I wouldn’t have survive without my books. Every day was a new challenge and a new fight for me. People around me discouraged and disappointed me in every steps of the way. My books helped me to survive those dark days. The stories had helped me escaped the harsh reality that I was going through.
As we say, bad phrases end, so did the bad phrase of my life too. But since then, my passion for reading has never ended. My collection of books has increased year by year. So have my thoughts. I grew matured with my stories, the way I think about life. My books have become an intermediate part of me, and I love it.
So, if you want to be a reader, then find your passion for reading. This will take time, but there will be a day in your life, where you couldn’t be separated from the books ever again.
