5 Reasons You Should Be Reading a Book Instead of "Netflixing?"

Did you just finish binge-watching a show on Netflix? Are you struggling to find what to watch next? Well, you should grab a book instead!

1. LET’S GET CREATIVE

Truthfully, it’s easier to turn on your TV and be distracted for hours on end with the click of a few buttons, but what’s the fun in that? Opening a book and stepping into a world in which you can create your own version of the author’s story is so much more empowering!

2.   THE AROMA OF A NEW BOOK

I know it sounds a bit odd, and trust me you’re right. But, come on! Have you ever gone to the bookstore and bought a new book?! The smell is certainly one to enjoy, if you ask me.

3. YOU’RE LEARNING EVEN IF IT DOESN’T FEEL LIKE IT

When you start reading on a regular basis, you tend to carry a lot more baggage, in a good way, of course! You pick up a new vocabulary, a better understanding of those pesky literary terms, and if the book happens to come up in a conversation, you’ll sound like the most well-read person in the bunch!

4. THE BOOK IS BETTER-THAN-THE-MOVIE THEORY

I can’t even count how many times I’ve read a book and enjoyed it, only to have the movie deprive me of the bare necessities that made me fall in love with the book in the first place. As a rule of thumb, do yourself a favor and always read the book first.

5. THERE’S NO LIGHT AT THE END OF THIS TUNNEL

Whether you’re looking to engage in a mystery filled-to-the-brim with twists and turns, or a more light-hearted romantic comedy, there are endless authors with endless stories! You’re just one library card away from never-ending enjoyment.
