Reading actual books is slowly being left behind by the majority of the population nowadays. Most would rather sit back and watch the cinema version of the best-selling books. Some might even stay at home and watch TV since some of the series are derived from novels as well. Nobody wants to go to the bookstore and buy the actual copy when they could just bring their mobile phone or similar device and read the story online.
This way of thinking, for most modern day people, has gotten them on a disadvantage. Unless they ever break the habit, will never feel the pleasure of going out and indulging in a new book. They will never experience the nostalgic smell of opening a crisp new book for the first time. Most online reads do not come along with that familiar scent or feeling. A book is actually way better than any gadget could compare, it doesn’t run out of battery, is relatively cheap, and can be carried anywhere.
There are so many benefits from reading a book, even the fictional genre. Most fictional work is a spin on real time events. The way that most are told often rings a bell of authenticity. Reading also stimulates mental functions. A mentally stimulated mind can have preventions such as Alzheimers and Dementia, the most destructive enemies of the think process. To the mind, reading is what exercise is to the body. To have a healthy brain, reading is recommended.
Not only is reading engaging, it helps keep your mind off things. Suspense, especially, compels one to read from beginning to end and develop their own takes and ideas. Reading also widens your view on certain aspects. You get to know so much just by cracking open a new book. You get to experience the feeling of being a secret agent, a spy, or the world’s greatest cop. Your critical thinking is also stimulated through the process of reading. A well written suspense novel will get you to gather your own thoughts on what you think will happen next. So take a dive into your next book!
