How to Learn to Love Reading
Learn to love reading, you must read on a daily basis. The best thing to do is to find reading materials that interest you or read to enhance a hobby you may have. There are tons of genres to choose from such as science fiction, love stories and poetry just to name a few. The list goes on with "how to books" that show how to knit, wood work and other craft ideas.
Loving to read is not a character we were born with, it is acquired. Reading a variety of books, magazines and news papers can help to enhance learning to love reading. Before you know it, you'll be looking for books to read. Web sites are a great place to start if you do not have books or news papers.
Do not force yourself to read. After you've read several fun and exciting reading materials, you will see how much you'll feel at peace when you're reading. As time go on, you'll look forward to the special time you have set aside for your reading time.
Reading to your child or love one can inspire you to love reading. Go to the library often and read with your child or alone. Make reading part of your alone time with the one you love, like reading poetry to your love one, they'll enjoy it and you'll enjoy it too.
Get serious about reading. Find time from your schedule to read at least thirty minutes a day. Find a quiet place away from daily distractions, get comfortable and try to read at the same time every day in your quiet place.
Another way to get involved in reading is to seek out groups that are near you. Reading is fun especially when you have someone you can discuss it with. This will help to motivate you to read more and even exchange books with your group or friends that love reading. I have a girl friend that lives in a different state than I and we exchange books through the mail.
Illiteracy is a problem and if that touches anyone you know, help them by reading to them. Start with a simple book and help them to learn how to read. The problem of illiteracy touch my household when I was a child. I had home work and no one to help me with it so I had to do the best I could. My mother was born in 1911, the elder of the other siblings. While her parents were working the fields, she had to care for the younger ones. She didn't get an education, went only to the third grade. I taught her how to read using children books.
It's important to learn how to read as it is important to love reading. I read a quote by Sir Richard Steel, "Reading is to the mind what exercise is to the body". I learned to love reading at a very young age, I read everything I could.
