Reading is reading…right?
Well, apparently not, according to some.
Recently I spotted an argument on social media. The crux of the main post was everyone should read, no matter if it’s an hour a day or ten minutes, but there’s something for everyone.
Personally, I agree with the sentiment. Of course, I do understand that not everyone has the time to take a break and read for any significant amount of time, but I do believe, whatever you read, it keeps our minds sharp and our imagination active.
However, the argument I followed for a little while seemed to blow out of proportion. There were people with the same perspective as me (and why wouldn’t there be when I’m right all the time? Just ask Tim 😉 he’ll tell you lol), but there were a lot of people with a completely different take on the matter.
What was their opinion? I hear you ask.
Well, they seemed to think that if you weren’t reading a novels then you weren’t actually reading.
Confused? Well, so was I, because, apparently, if you read comics or magazines your entertaining yourself but you aren’t reading.
So, I have to give my two pennies worth to the people that think that way. Personally, I think you’re wrong and here’s why…
- Not everyone that reads a book will read a novel. Some, who have limited time, would rather read non-fiction or self help books they learn from.
- Others don’t have any time in their day when they’re looking after sick loved ones, or chasing after small children, so they might choose a comic or magazine to read because it affords them the time to be able to jump up at a moments notice.
- Yet more read newspapers, which give them the chance to read and also keep up with current events and the news in their areas.
So, come on people, let everyone read what they want to read. After all, it’s reading no matter what it is they chose. It’s still the written word. Heck, even a leaflet is text on paper and you have to read it to acquire all the details.
Reading is reading. Full stop!
