So you’re bored,

What should you do?


Skip or run?

Clean up after yourself dutifully?

Your mom probably wishes you’d do that once in a while…

So what do you do eventually?


Ever heard of reading?

So you think to yourself. Why not? Let’s give it a shot.

And you see the old dusty bookcase in the corner of the room.

Ugh… it’s just ugly. But let’s give it a shot.

So, you take out a book, blow the dust off, have a coughing fit, and then open the book.

In a movie, there would be an angelic glow and the music would start, and your eyes would light up.

But all you see is yellow pages, so disappointing…

Where’s the pictures? Where’s the music? Just words after words after words! But you promised to give it a shot so, here goes nothing.

You begin to read, word by word. And what do you find?

It’s not as bad as you thought is was! The more you read, the more you love the book!

And soon, you’ve read every book on that shelf. And every shelf in that bookcase!

You’ll probably go bankrupt buying more and more books!

I hope I’ve opened your eyes (literally). So now, happy reading!
