Why books are amazing.


While do I love reading so much? Every time I open a book and start to read, I leave this world to travel to another or to go back in time or visit the future. It’s really nice to trade this world in for another, even though it is just for a little while. I really do not understand why some people dislike, or even hate reading. How can you hate reading? You can pick a book from a genre that you like, or about a subject that you like the most. In my opinion, people who don’t like to read haven’t read a good book yet or have difficulties with reading. There is nothing as fun as living those incredible stories.

When I was about ten years old, I got my letter from Hogwarts and traveled by train to Scotland to become a witch. I killed the Basilisk with Harry and mourned the death of Sirius. I also went on a dangerous quest with Frodo to destroy the Ring and crowned Aragon. I rode together with Eragaon on Saphira’s back and learned how to defend cities and how to make a Dragon Riders sword. I’ve walked through a wardrobe and saw winter. I chased Dracula and lived at the Tudor court. I won the Hunger games and found the Holy Grail. I fell in love with a fallen angel and sat on the Iron Throne. I voted for the new Lord Commander and listened to Cairne Bloodhoof, when Thrall didn’t.

I did all of that and a lot more, because I read books. There is so much adventure and so much knowledge in books. Even fictional books can teach us a lot. Just yesterday and orc taught me that the future or the past do not matter. The only thing that is important is this moment. If you live too much in the past, or too much in the future, you cannot enjoy life.
There is an awesome movie about a boy who get sucked into (classic) stories! If you haven’t seen it, you really should check it out, I’ll post a trail down below!
