3 Benefits From Reading Books

Reading is something I really enjoy doing, I like reading fiction and nonfiction both. I’ve benefited a great deal from reading books. Today I wanted to share 3 benefits of reading books.

#1: Reading a Book Helps me Learn

This one is very remarkable, and probably the best out of the three. I have learned heaps of knowledge from reading books. If you were to ask me what fascinating things I know, about eighty eight percent of the things I would tell you, would be things that I learned from reading books. Some people love reading books and some hate it, but if for no other reason, read books so you can learn.

#2: Reading is Thought Provoking

Many of my good ideas, or not so good ideas, are thought of while reading a book. When you’re reading you’re thinking, the things you read can trigger other thoughts, those thoughts can also bring new thoughts into your mind. Did you know that you are thinking one hundred percent of the time? So you might want to consider spending your time  thinking about useful things and good things. Finding good and useful books to read is one way you can do that.

#3: Reading Books Will Help You Develop Life Skills

Learning to read books efficiently and effectively is something you’ll probably find beneficial all throughout your lifetime, especially if you’re reading books containing knowledge on certain skills. Some people say that reading six books on a certain skill will help you master that skill. Whatever you’re learning to do, read books on that subject, you won’t regret it.

  1. I also love reading books. I wish I had more time to read more. One thing I have learned from reading novels is the mindset of people from times in the past. This comes from reading older books.
    I also enjoy learning from people’s stories of their life and how they made it through.
    I like your favorites page. Some great authors that you like.


  2. I don’t have a “good” reason for reading. I get benefits from it of course, but if asked why I read, I just shrug and go “Because I can’t imagine what life would be like without books.” Favorites page looks good, I can’t wait to see what else you’ll put on there!

  3. From reading, unknown life becomes known. Another place, another time, another mindset. These I learn from reading. Reading also paces me. I read slowly, always have. But reading now slows me down in a good way. Providing time and space for reflection and thinking over things anew.

    Thank you for reading from my blog. I enjoy your “Favorites” page. Lewis and Paulsen are favorites of mine.


  4. Reading is a way to relax while still be engaged (like you said, reading makes us think). Reading is a way to see God in new ways through the eyes of different characters and through different situations that we might never find ourselves in. I firmly believe that God uses people who don’t even acknowledge Him and sometimes He reminds me of His truths through random fiction. Reading also sparks creativity. To be a good writer, you have to be a good reader. Through other people’s stories I might find inspiration for my own stories. I also might learn what not to do, or how to better structure a sentence or build my vocabulary so my own writing isn’t so repetitive. Reading is just the best.


  5. Hey Zachary,
    Thanks for checking out my blog!
    I agree reading is awesome. One thing I love about it is it allows me to use my imagination. Instead using my eyes and my ears, (like when watching a movie or tv), for what a character looks like, or how a character might speak, I can create all of that with my mind:)
