Reading is not my absolute favorite thing to do but I do like to read. I mostly just read for fun and when I mean for fun I mean fiction books or magazines. Most of the books I read are just fun stories and they’re pretty easy reads because why strain yourself if you don’t have to? Also because when I read since it’s just for fun I do not see myself as that much of a critical reader. I really enjoy reading things when they interest me though. It’s fun to find a new book or even a textbook that catches your interest and you just want to keep reading more and more. Reading things like academic journals and nonfiction articles just is not really for me. If I can’t understand something after reading it I just keep rereading it until I do or at least somewhat, which is pretty frustrating and I am sure that many of you all can agree. However, I do like reading news type articles to see what is going on in the world.
I do see my reading as having changed since high school. I read a lot less in that time and especially since it wasn’t really as important to read your textbooks I rarely did. Now I don’t mind reading my textbooks and taking notes because it’s on things I’m actually interested in and it’s not such a hassle like I used to think. I comprehend things a lot more now since I’ve been in college and I know that this is because we learn more so we know more and the reading gets easier. Reading really is a fun activity though and I have always enjoyed it. I feel like as I get older I should continue reading and expand my reading selection.
