I wonder if there is any journey of a reader when reading books
I think i have one
When i was an elementary school student, i loved reading comics. My fav one is detective conan. Since reading it, i really like something mysterious and wished to be a detective. The comics are monochrome by the way.
After that, detective conan released a colorful comic. That was very cool and expensive. Sometimes when you hold monochrome comics, they would rest you mark in the hand ^^ very different when you touch colorful comics, no mark at all, haha.
When i became a high school student, there was a comic series named death note. This comic is not about detective but quite mysterious story. Unfortunately there was no colorful papers in the death note comics. I still liked it because of the story.
My high school had a nice library with bunch of books. Here i started to stare at the novel shelves. In the end, i moved from reading comic to the novel. Fiction book.
Fiction story relies on the imagination of the author and i guess i have read a lot of marvelous fiction novels. No more comic. This kind of book also succeed to make me cry, laugh, annoyed and smile in one. Something that i did not get from the comic. One of my fav novel is Ayah 50%.
And then i was a college student, where i guess that was the last of journey, or, i don’t know i read non-fiction books whether they are biography, psychology, motivation, IR, true story or/and religion type.
Reading non-fiction is really stimulating. I feel satisfied. Sometimes the books were so hard to be understood, but when you came to the final understanding, which means finally you understood the author’s masterpiece, it was so exceptionally good.
Purpose is a pull, motivation is an encouragement.
Most of the time, non-fiction books became my encouragement. To be happier, to be grateful, to be broad-minded, etc. Surely there was the ‘strange’ books sometimes, since i think i am not ready yet, i would stop read those and found another one.
Bear in mind that we don’t have to force ourselves to read everything!
I believe “there-is-a-time”
If the book / book type is good, they will come back to you sooner or later
If the book / book type is not good, fortunately you don’t read one ;D
