Books …. Does anyone ever just sit and read books anymore ? Reading books can be a very relaxing thing , it can also be a great way to learn , how long is it since you just sat down and read a book ? Ever just turned off the TV or the radio and read a book just for pleasure ? I do it all the time just love the escapisim it can give you , the way you can just forget all your worries and troubles just for a little while and immerse yourself in a different world. Maybe it will not change the things you want to change but if you can just relax away from all your worries for a while it has got to be good for you , well I think so anyway the things that bother you will not be changed by you taking a break for a while and it will do you good and help you to think a little better after a break .
Books do us a lot of good , gets us away from the electronic maze for a while and out of the constant urge to do this or that , like this page or that , share this page or that , it is relentless and you really need to take a step back sometimes and this is where relaxing with a good book comes in. Most people who see you reading a book will not disturb you , it is funny how if it is a book you are reading they leave you alone but if you are on the computer they do not hesitate to ask you things never did understand that . There is so much more satisfaction I think in reading an actual book than sitting in front of a computer all the time , and there are some things you just cannot learn on a computer .
Books cover a whole different world of things , especially if you like fiction as there is so many different types of fiction or fantasy that you have so much to choose from ,and each can take you to a different world just for a little while at a time . While i know almost everyone now just goes right to the computer and google you can actually learn a lot from picking up a book , lol trust me google does not know everything . You can go from mildly sick to dead in just a few clicks using google lol and who needs that ? Despite what 99% of people think now google does not know everything and a bit of good old fashioned research can teach you almost as well by using books .
Books are also a better way of storing things , yes you will need a bookshelf or 3 but if you save things on a computer you also need lots of memory sticks or hard drives , it all adds up to the same thing but I think books are the more relaxing way to do it . Reading is and always will be to me a much better way to research as you do not run the risk of the computer throwing a hissy fit causing you to lose all the information you just got together , with a book it is at hand all the time . Books don’t need to be re booted or scanned or anything like that for you to check up on something , they are right there at hand ready to use always . Books do not do the whole ” you need to update ” thing that can waste a whole lot of time , time you may not have at the time of research. Books do not keep you waiting for ages and ages while they do the whole scan and reboot thing as they are always ready you only have to pick them up.
Do not get me wrong I am not saying computers are bad I just think we give them way too much of our time and we need to get up and walk away more often . Books can be a very good way to be able to do this , going for a good walk also always helps , or going shopping even if it is just window shopping or going for a coffee . There are many other ways to get away from computers but these are just a few of them I am sure you know many of the other ways too. Computers can do a way lot more than books can but if it had not been for the books to start with we never would have gotten to them in the first place , we would not have been able to read without first learning from books . Learning to read and write was I think 1 of the best things ever I have always loved reading and even now do a lot of reading still .
So how much book reading do you do , do you ever just walk away and pick up a book or a magazine just for sheer relaxation ? We all need to relax at least a bit , hopefully before we get to the point of throwing said computer under a bus , lol as I threaten to do often right now as this thing plays up constantly . Books are the 1 thing I can count on not to crash , lol except if I fall asleep reading and it crashes to the floor . Well 1 thing for sure when it does crash to the floor all it does is scare the wits out of me but no other damage , lol , but if a computer does it is a whole new world of pain as we all know . It can take days to restore a computer but all you have to do with a book is pick it up and go back to the page you were on . …Lol get the impression that I just love books ???
