Why you should READ LESS*

*as in putting less pressure on yourself with how MANY books you read, but rather focusing on the QUALITY of what you read. Basically, quality over quantity (as is the case with many things in life). Enjoy!

Some might read the title of the video and think "oh, cool, I don't have to read, I wasn't going to anyway". If that's the case, I suggest you watch the entire video first. Reading is very important, it has many benefits for your brain, and unfortunately, school prepares us from a young age to see reading as a chore or as something unpleasant. Then there's the other type of people who only read Personal Development and Self Help books, and that's mainly who I'm targeting with this video. The Self Help industry is making billions of dollars every year, often selling sub-par written content that gives the illusion of personal growth. There's so much more value in a novel, or a history book, than you will ever find in the average Self-improvement book. So although I'm talking about why you should read less, the moral of the story - spoiler alert - is why you should read more, or why you should be more selective with the type of books you're reading. Looking forward to the conversation in the comment section.

Even though I don’t read much, a series of books I really like is: Rangers Apprentice. It’s a fantasy book which kind off takes place in medieval times, there are about 14 books in the series and the ones I’ve read are very good. Personally a book category I like is information books about certain fandoms, such as Star Wars or avatar, or basically whatever you may like. So you can learn more about the world or the science in the fiction (pun intended). For example books about how lightsabers work, if your into that sort of thing, or maps of the worlds from the fandom. Hope this helps 👍

online books, not big fat books🤣 idk why but if I have to read the same exact book, I prefer to read it online than to read it in big fat book version. Big fat book turns me off for some reason, it makes me think I'm too dumb for it🤣🤣🤣 but when I read online books, I can like almost finish the whole book in a day. Like if there are 500 chapters I can at least finish 200 chapters in one day! Which is equivalent to 200 pages in a book. Well I hope so🤣but yeah I do like reading but online! I don't get why this happens to me, but yeah generally I prefer online book. Yes I do use wattpad 😂 and yes I do have webnovel

Saying that you should read a book in a week is a lot like saying you will exercise every day. Sure, there are the dedicated, who read 300 page books in a week, and people who do 1 hour of Very Intense workouts, But there are also those who just read a 20 page book and consider walking to the bathroom from gaming a workout. It's a vague definition, and that really is what causes it to seem to fail. The vagueness. If I have any advice for some goal-setters, here are some: - Write it down in a spot that you will see every day, studies show that people are 42% more likely to do their goals than people who don't - Be Specific. If you are vague, then you will see minimal progress, as explained earlier. - If you fail, don't give up, instead, see it as progress. Even if you only read 10 pages of that book, it's still progress nonetheless. Every failure is progress because your skills get slightly better each time you fail, until it gets to the point of you able to conquer that challenge easily.

really if u wanna read books this year, go for it. but dont go from not reading books to reading a book every week. maybe do a book eveey 2 weeks. something that keeps you in the game. so ur minds want to shutdown reading do many books that u lose motivation. it is like going to the gym for the first time skin as hell and lifting what the rock lifts, its just unrealistic. and if ur gonna read books, set how many pages u wanna read per book. it could start at 200 pages per book then 300 then 400 and so on

and also listen to what andrei said about genres of ur book. sorry im only half way in the vid. so if u wanna know how u can start a business then u would have to be at the youngest 20. but dont think u can start a business right now. plan how ur gonna do it. but if ur a slow reader like me (luckily i have a pretty good vocabulary for my age and im not gonna tell u my age cos i dont wanna brag), then go read fiction so it excites u while learning so u would probably have to be in ur last couple of years in primary school or be in early secondary school.

When I was younger I read so many books. But I didn’t read them in hopes of making me smarter. I read them because, quite frankly I had no friends to hangout with and I had nowhere to go. I read almost every book that interested me and it ended up helping me tremendously in school. It helped me cause I either read the book so it was easier to summarize or it helped me with my writing. But once I realized how much it helped I started to read more, “better” or “smarter” books but it just made me kind of hate reading. I still don’t read as much as I did before (I used to read so much I read while eating and it was hard not to. Now I use my phone 😔) anyways. Moral of the story, don’t force yourself to read. Just read books that you would want to read. Reading is for enjoyment that just comes with a couple of benefits just like a lot of hobbies.

I mean ik no one is gonna see this i just wanna say I really love fantasy, sci fi and In general books that can take you into another world. A series I really like is wings of fire by tui. T Sutherland . School books that try to stuff info that doesn't help in the long run are just for going over for tests and either giving them to someone or like me and the boys do every end of the year, use them as food for fire in my friends backyard and burn the bugs( especially spiders ) or make them fight over the flames on a stick.(yes, we are imbeciles when it comes to fun.) What im trying to get at is ya dont need to keep every book you have until school ends. Either give it away or let it burn.
