10 Reasons Why You Should Read Books Everyday - Part 2

I hope you all enjoyed 10 Reasons Why You Should Read Books Everyday - Part 1 and now for the second part as I promised.

As you may have seen around you that the majority of people don't read books everyday. I know our schedules tend to be busy but I think it's important for you to realize how important it is to create a habit of reading books everyday even if it's only for 15 minutes.

Here are the next five reasons why (in no particular order):

6

Reading is fun.


Actually this is the best reason ever to read books everyday! This is probably the top reason for those of you that do read, and no doubt it really is a good one.

Why else would we read if it weren't fun? Well, actually there are several reasons in this list. I don't think this one really needs an explanation. 

7

Reading is better than watching movies.

Please don't get me wrong about books or movies but I think this goes the same for most of you out there (or maybe not) but anyway, I LOVE MOVIES!

I guess both have their own qualities but the reason why books are better is because you can take time to absorb the material and imagine what it looks like using your own brain when reading. 

Depending on how fast you read and how long the book is it might take you 3 days to finish or a whole month. It really doesn't matter though how long it takes as long as you can be immersed in the story with your own imagination creating the images in your head. It's beautiful!

Whereas movies are just shoved in your face and most of the time you don't have time to think about the previous scene before the next one comes and so on. The length and details of books cannot be squeezed into even a 3 hour movie. Therefore movies can't compare to the power a book has.

8


Reading inspires you to do more with your life.

Initially you have to be the one who gets inspired to start reading books in the first place if you aren't already and if you are you have to make sure to be reading the right things to help inspire you to be better.

There are definitely plenty of people reading this now that already have been inspired by books and are taking action to live a better life. Take for example myself:

At first it was my wife that encouraged me to pick up some business books to help create some ideas for building a business. At first I was a bit skeptical. I though, what could a book do to help me succeed in life?

The first non-fiction book that I decided to pick up was 'Second Chance' by Robert Kiyosaki because I heard many great things about Robert Kiyosaki and YES he is great. After reading this book I had a burning desire to look for more books and more knowledge about life and wealth.

Some of you might dread to read business or self help books and some of you might love it. For me, I love business and self help books. I love pretty much any type of book. 

I just want to take the time to encourage you to read what makes you happy and don't be too quick to shut a book down as soon as see the genre. Just because you don't normally read that genre doesn't mean you shouldn't give it a go. I'd love to see you learn more.
You will find that most successful people really do read.

 9

Reading creates easily discussable topics.

The more you read, the more vocabulary you pick up, the more ideas go into your head that may not have been there before will make it much easier for you to think of something to talk about with a friend or acquaintance.

I am a type of person that likes to talk, but there are times that probably the good of us have when we can't think of something to talk about. If you read books every day then no doubt you'll have more to talk about.

You don't even necessarily need to talk about the book itself (because there are people that really don't like books) but the topic of the book would suffice. So next time you run out of ideas think back to a book that you read or are currently reading and just start talking about that. 

10

Reading can be done anywhere.

That's not what I had in mind.
The last and one of the best reasons to read books everyday is the fact that reading can be practically done anywhere with a few exceptions whereas most other activities could be disturbing in certain situations where reading wouldn't.

Think of all the places you could read. Some people like to read on the train, bus, plane or any type of transportation (specially me, I love, love absolutely love reading on the plane.). 

Now relax and imagine you're listening to the soothing sound of waves laying under a cool breezy umbrella with the soft white sand of a tropical beach surrounding your suntanned body and hands holding a book you're completely immersed in at the moment. Isn't that a perfect setting?
Or how about sitting cross-legged in your own private reading nook with your childhood stuffed animals and fluffy pillows around you cushioning you while you read your favorite book for the 5th time? Very nice indeed!

Point is that reading a book can be a very relaxing thing and anyplace you can sit down (or lay) is probably a place you could read. Anyone like noisy places? That's doable too (at least for me). 

Reading is the most versatile activity that has existed for hundreds of years. No wonder printed books have lasted this long and will probably last much longer or at least until we all go green.

Trek Into A Singular Destiny

I don't know about you but I really do love Star Trek but I'm not a fanatic like some people out there that get into their full Klingon getup or paste on their Vulcan ears and go to Comicon. Not that it's wrong to do that. I've done it myself once or twice back when I was a teenager.

I didn't dress up though but I did get a chance to meet Nicelle Nichols who played Uhura in TOS. She's such a sweetheart and beautiful despite her age. I also met George Takei (Sulu, TOS) who since then has come back into stardom. Maybe not as much as back in the day, but I'd have to say he was a fun guy to meet in person.

There's a little history about Star Trek and I, although there's tons more stories to tell which I may just write a separate post for that. What do you think, would you like to hear more about my story? Let me know in the Disqus comments below. 

Now onto the main content of the post.

START WITH WHY: Give Yourself A Reason For Everything You Do

This book was amazing! START WITH WHY blew my mind. Why did START WITH WHY blow my mind? Well, it has pretty much changed my perspective on why I do things. Mainly why I’m starting my own business, but also why I spend time reading or watching my favorite program. From now on even the littlest things can START WITH WHY in my life! The concept is fairly simple yet has so much power. Simon Sinek did a thorough job of explaining the importance of WHY and how it can help put your business ahead of others. It's not all about being a leader in business though, it's also about building a connection between you, and your following. The clarity of WHY shines brighter and longer than any HOW or WHAT. The examples of how Apple has dominated technology are because of WHY the company is in business. What makes Apple stand out?


It's not WHAT Apple makes, or HOW they make it. The reason why they have such a loyal following is because of WHY they make their products. Apple is used as the mai…

Bye-Bye Blogger - Hello WordPress

Hey, my fellow book lovers! I'm not going to take too much of your time today. I want to express my frustration with Blogger and the fact that very soon I'll be buying my own domain and moving over to WordPress since I have outgrown the amateur blogger stage.

UPDATE: THIS BLOG HAS MOVED TO BOOKMATTIC.COM
It was fun while it lasted Blogger, you showed me the ropes of what it's like to be a blogger and gave me a glimpse of the bright future that is coming my way. Thank you, Blogger, for all the things you've taught me along the way.
But now it's time for me to move on because people don't take your platform seriously, Blogger. As I've read from several sources, advertisers won't take a second look at Blogger blogs.
The way to go is Wordpress. So, I'm sorry Blogger, but by next week I'll be moving all my posts over to Wordpress and never come back.
For the people that have been following my posts, I'm happy to say that this will be a big step for us…

6 Eclectic HIGH Fantasy and HARD Sci-Fi Titles You Won't Want to Miss

Over the past week or so I’ve been finding myself craving some high fantasy and hard sci-fi. There’s been way too much YA fluff out there lately and I miss the days of reading something that truly sucks you into the story and opens your imagination.
So I thought it would be nice to look a little forward into the future and find 3 high fantasy novels and 3 hard sci-fi novels to enlighten your future reading schedule.
All of the titles I picked are due to be released in January 2018. None of them are YA novels. And all of them are the first in their series or stand-alone books. You may have noticed that trilogies have been the trend for the past decade or longer. Sometimes it’s good just to have a stand-alone book that really stands out. Not that I don’t like trilogies or series. It’s just nice to change the pace up once in awhile if you know what I mean.
When a stand-alone book is done well it’s usually the best quality of all other books like it. Now, I had a bit of a hard time while si…

Top 8 Content Bloggers You Should Read Daily

No matter where you are in this world, how old you are, or how you were raised, unless you’re a pro and have been at blogging for years upon years then you still need someone in your life to help you along.
Even pro content bloggers need to continue learning about the ever-changing landscape of the internet and technology, daily. That means if you’re just starting out then you need to learn extra hard and keep on practicing the new blogging techniques you acquire.

That is why I’ve put together a list of 8 blogs ranging from big names like Forbes and Huffington Post down to more niche-specific sites like Blogging From Paradise, to help you out with your own blogging troubles. The list of blogs is in the order of frequency that I read them in. Meaning that the #1 blog on my list is one I practically read every day because his content is so amazing and detailed.

Marketing Points From The Tipping Point

The Tipping Point is not what I was expecting it to be especially since it was referred to in Contagious by Jonah Berger(reviewed here). While reading ‘Contagious’ Berger mentions ‘The Tipping Point’ as one of his inspirations to write his book which is much more oriented towards having an effective marketing strategy. I have seen Gladwell’s books several times in the business book section at my local bookstore here in Surabaya but what I didn't realize about the book before I bought it was that it isn't specifically about business.
Yes, some concepts in ‘The Tipping Point’ can be applied to your marketing business plan but Gladwell didn't write it for entrepreneurs. He wrote this for the average person. It's harsh but true. I’d say it's more about the result of a study into why certain things spread and others don't. There's very little mention about how to apply the research to your own life.

The majority of the content goes into epidemic viruses, smoking, a…

Blogger's Content Guide: Write With Heart

Yes, right now I’m here at my keyboard typing to you. Yes, YOU, that’s right. If you’re reading this post you are most likely trying to come up with ideas on how to engage better with amazing content with your regular and new blog readers. This is something that seems difficult, but with time, effort and a few ingredients for success you can almost easily overcome this obstacle.

I’ve been at this serious blogging thing for over eight months now and sometimes I still find it hard to come up with ideas for my next post. I question myself ‘Why are you having such a hard time, Matt? It shouldn’t be that difficult!’
Truthfully, it can be difficult to find just the right topic for a post that will attract the right audience. That is one of the trickiest parts of the whole blogging thing. You’re not just writing for yourself, but also all the people interested in the topic you write about as well as all the people that have access to the world wide web.
As a blogger, you have to reach out to you…
