10 Reasons Why Reading is the Best of Hobbies

1: It kills boredom– Even when we are not reading, we can always think about books, research books, blog about books, review books and what not!? Reading is the best way to fight loneliness.

2: It is a healthy addiction– Except of harming your eyesight a little, reading is an addiction that is totally safe and fun. Oh! And audiobooks are an option for the eyesight thingy.

3: It helps us escape realitySometimes Most of the times, the real world just doesnโ€™t feel all that great. At that time, we can always escape into the fantasy world of our favorite book.

4: Words have a lot of power– Some good novels can actually give great life lessons to learn and help become a better person.

5: It relieves stress, anger and melancholy– Whenever we are not in a good mood, books are the best way to bring us back to our happy selves.

6: Books donโ€™t know the art of betrayal– They are one of the most loyal companions who forget every sin you did to them and are always there for you even on your darkest nights ๐Ÿ˜Œ.

7: The Art of Writing– Reading books inspires us to write some of our own and thus, we think deeply about the profession of a writer.

8: Readers are great friends– A reader friend is NOT boring. They are the best of listeners, they always have great advice and can really inspire you sometimes. Also, if you are a reader too, then having a friend who is into reading is goals, man.

9: Netflix and Chill? Ummm… Not me– Readers do watch movies and stuff but Netflix isnโ€™t their medium for survival. A book party is what they can always have.

10: Most Readers have great vocabulary- You ever met Klaus Baudelaire? Heโ€™s a living dictionary. And in some way, we are too. We know the meaning of a lot of good words and thus, have good writing and communication skills. Only, we may not talk that often as we are mostly reading but that doesn’t mean that we are boring. When will people understand that ๐Ÿ™„!?


So if you are reading this, why donโ€™t you go read a novel or something and experience the pleasures of reading yourself!?

      1. “Go, Tubai, fee me an officer; bespeak him a fortnight before. I will have the heart of him, if he forfeit; for were he out of Venice, I can make what merchandise I will. Go, Tubal, and meet me at our synagogue; go, good Tubal; at our synagogue, Tubal.”

      1. There is more in you of good than you know, child of the kindly West. Some courage and some wisdom, blended in measure. If more of us valued food and cheer and song above hoarded gold, it would be a merrier worldย ๐Ÿ˜‡

      2. Child of the kindly West, I have come to know, if more of us valued your ways – food and cheer above hoarded gold – it would be a merrier world. But sad or merry, I must leave it now.

      1. To-morrow, and to-morrow, and to-morrow,
        Creeps in this petty pace from day to day,
        To the last syllable of recorded time;
        And all our yesterdays have lighted fools
        The way to dusty death. Out, out, brief candle!

      2. Hence! Home, you idle creatures get you home!

        Is this a holiday? What, know you not,

        Being mechanical, you ought not walk

        Upon a laboring day without the sign

        Of your profession?โ€”Speak, what trade art thou?

        Why are we-est doing thither?

      3. All that glistens is not gold;
        Often have you heard that told:
        Many a man his life hath sold
        But my outside to behold:
        Gilded tombs do worms enfold.
        Had you been as wise as bold,
        Young in limbs, in judgment old,
        Your answer had not been inscrollโ€™d:
        Fare you well; your suit is cold.

      4. The fire seven times tried this,
        Seven times tried that judgment is,
        That did never choose amiss.
        Some there be that shadows kiss.
        Such have but a shadowโ€™s bliss.
        There be fools alive, iwis,
        Silvered o’erโ€”and so was this.
        Take what wife you will to bed,
        I will ever be your head.
        So be gone. You are sped.
        Still more fool I shall appear

      5. You that choose not by the view,
        Chance as fair and choose as true.
        Since this fortune falls to you,
        Be content and seek no new.
        If you be well pleased with this
        And hold your fortune for your bliss,
        Turn you where your lady is
        And claim her with a loving kiss.

      6. A gentle scroll. Fair lady, by your leave,
        I come by note to give and to receive.
        Like one of two contending in a prize
        That thinks he hath done well in peopleโ€™s eyes,
        Hearing applause and universal shout,
        Giddy in spirit, still gazing in a doubt
        Whether these pearls of praise be his or noโ€”
        So, thrice fair lady, stand I even so,
        As doubtful whether what I see be true
        Until confirmed, signed, ratified by you.

      7. You see me, Lord Bassanio, where I stand
        Such as I am. Though for myself alone
        155I would not be ambitious in my wish
        To wish myself much better, yet for you
        I would be trebled twenty times myselfโ€”
        A thousand times more fair, ten thousand times more richโ€”
        That only to stand high in your account
        160I might in virtue, beauties, livings, friends
        Exceed account.

      8. But the full sum of me
        Is sum of something which, to term in gross,
        Is an unlessoned girl, unschooled, unpracticรจd;
        Happy in thisโ€”she is not yet so old
        But she may learn. Happier than thisโ€”
        She is not bred so dull but she can learn.
        Happiest of all is that her gentle spirit
        Commits itself to yours to be directed
        As from her lord, her governor, her king.

      2. Life’s but a walking shadow, a poor player,
        That struts and frets his hour upon the stage,
        And then is heard no more. It is a tale
        Told by an idiot, full of sound and fury,
        Signifying nothing.โ€

    1. The throned monarch better than his crown;
      His sceptre shows the force of temporal power,
      The attribute to awe and majesty,
      Wherein doth sit the dread and fear of kings;
      But mercy is above this sceptred sway;

      Therefore my merchandise makes me not sad ๐Ÿ™‚
