I was never a fan of literature back in high school.
I kinda do a little bit of reading but I never really find it appealing. Then for whatever reason, my mama bought me the whole set of Percy Jackson series. It was during summer I think and I was probably soooo bored back then to even pick them up and read it but I did. I have no idea what has gotten into me but I do remember finishing the books within a week! Crazy.
Right after Percy, I started exploring different genre and authors and all that. That’s when my reading addiction has began.
Actually, I wanted to numerate the benefits of reading in my life in this entry.
During my high school days. Writing “My most memorable experiences” “What I Did Last Summer” “MY REACTIONS ON BLAH-BLAH-BLAH” was the most brain-sucker part of all.
You would have to be extra careful on your words, the grammar, the terms, the insights and THE SPELLING! — Geez! You have no idea how bad am I with those.
Seems to me that finding and thinking of enough words to express myself was the most difficult part. In college, this was never a problem anymore. Thank goodness! It would have been so embarassing if I still can’t write a proper english statement back then.
But you see, no matter what type of books you read, It will always helps you challenge your brain with mental exercises, vocabulary and communication skills.
Plus, I do enjoy writing now. From the very poor way of blogging to a somehow, err, improved one. LOL.
Reading is fun. Pwwommmmise!
