The Daily Wisdom Event
Word of the Day: Broach
Definition: To bring up (a subject) for discussion or debate. To initiate.
Task: Write a post inspired by the word “Broach”.
I recently wrote a post about the perception people have towards reading. Some like it; others don’t. It’s as simple as that. Or is it? Reading books is a hobby, a habit, that parents have tried to inculcate in their children for a countless number of years. Sometimes it worked but other times it didn’t. A sad fact, actually…
To those that don’t read, why don’t you? Please tell me! (Although is there, or has there ever been, a writer/blogger, who does not like to read? As a friend, I have often broached the topic of reading to friends who simply do not pick up a book to read as a habit. I always get the same reply, “No Way!”
What’s a girl to do to convince people to read books? How does a girl find that one delicate genre of books that a person who doesn’t usually read books will like? Would not all these problems go away if the habit and joy of reading was shown to children thus making them avid readers later on? One leads/teaches by example. To make someone read a book, they must first see you reading a book.
