In honour of World Book Day on Thursday, I thought I would write a post on why books are so amazing.
1. As soon as you open up a book, you enter a whole new world.
Each book you open up has new things waiting for you, new experiences and new universes. Every book is different and unique, offering billions of circumstances.
2. A book gives you the freedom to decide what goes on.
A film shows you exactly what the characters look like, what the world looks like and how everything is shown. However, when reading a book, it gives you the opportunity to choose what goes on and how everything looks, in your own head.
3. A book is portable.
You can take a book anywhere and everywhere! You can read it on an aeroplane, a car journey or a boat trip. The versatile nature means you can continue your story wherever you want and not matter about connecting to the internet or whether it will run out of charge!
4. You can pick up a book whenever you want, no commitment needed!
However much time you have in a day, you can read a book. No commitment is needed, you don’t have to finish a whole book, you can read a page if you want!
5. You can learn from books.
Whether it is a situation you have experienced or about to experience yourself, every book has something to learn from. A message that you can take away or even an experience that you now know how to handle just a little bit better, every book has something important to take away from it.
Happy World Book Day everyone!
