Ever since I was old enough to read “Green Eggs and Ham,” I’ve had a love for literature and storytelling that has yet to cease influencing my life.

I remember the day I read my first chapter book. The book was so captivating that I couldn’t put it down. When I was finished with it, I immediately looked for the next one in the series and read that one with just as much speed. It was amazing.

However, I can’t say that I read as frequently anymore. As I have become older, life has become busier; I find myself with less time to truly enjoy a good book. Often times, I am either too forgetful or tired at the end of a long day to consistently find new books for personal reading.

That’s why I propose we make time for reading. Try to really delve into a story and connect with what’s on the page. Whether or not you really like a book might not become entirely apparent until well after the first few chapters. In fact, it usually takes me at least fifty or more pages to become fully invested in a book, but when I finally do get into it, I’m always happy with my decision.

At the end of the day, reading for fun is an experience that, sadly, can be hard to have in our work-heavy and entertainment-saturated lives. So go find a book, and don’t read it because you need to for a class or some other dull, time-consuming aspect of life. Read it in spite of those things. I promise, a good book is not an investment you’ll regret.
