Let’s Talk Bookish is a weekly discussion hosted by Rukky @Eternity Books where a bookish topic is discussed each week. This week’s topic is: How has reading shaped/changed your life?
1 The biggest way that reading has changed my life is this blog. I never really imagined having a blog where anyone could read my writing, and that I would feel comfortable with that. I have been always really private with my writing, never letting anyone else read it, and I would come up with ideas for stories, but never finish them. I guess in a way, blogging has also shaped my life for the last 3 months, (I can’t believe it’s been that long!) as well as changing it.
2 Reading is my go-to activity. If I’m bored, I’ll read a book. In that sense, I guess, reading isn’t a chore for me; it’s something I want to do, something fun. I’m really grateful that my parents made reading a ‘normal’ thing for me, and that I have access to so many books.
3 I love writing. Because I love writing so much, it makes me look at the books I read in different ways, and then understand them differently. Reading books about things happening in the world, or historical events is a really interesting and informative way to learn about some topics, and more fun than learning facts from a textbook.
4 Reading has improved my grammar, and my other writing skills. Reading gives me more exposure to the grammar, and that influences my writing, so it makes me a better writer.
5 Reading has made me more empathetic; reading books about all different types of people from all different types of view really shows what life can be like for other people.
So, that’s how reading has shaped and changed my life! Do you agree with these? Chat with me in the comments below!
