they really be out there? Do they really exist? And if they don’t read, what do they do? As someone who loves to read and breathe books, you may want to introduce non-readers to the amazing world that you experience every day. Converting a non-reader into a reader is literally on your bucket list. You literally find yourself daydream- ing about a book plot and you have the innate ability to sneak in books in almost every conversation that you have. You know that book puns are the greatest thing ever (even if you are the only one who under- stands them in your group of friends). You lose track of time when you start a great book and the next time you look up several hours have passed. Reading books is like having access to the greatest minds that the world of literature has ever produced. You can read their thoughts and benefit from them. You can learn from other people’s mistakes. You can learn to cope up with the unknown and difficult emotions and situation. You can learn to forgive and understand. Reading can help you comprehend life and help you live it to the fullest. We start reading since we don’t even know how to read. The little world of children is made surreal and enigmatic by books and intel- lectual parents know that. To make sure that your child grows up to be a reader and not a slacker, parents often force their children to read, even when they cannot read. Staring at the colorful illustrated books like “The Hungry Caterpillar”, “Good Night Moon” and “Where the Wild Things Are”, when we couldn’t even recognize the words brought joy to our life. Most avid readers who indulge in regularly reading books state that their habit and love for books originated from their childhood, when their parents encouraged them to read aloud and point at the words with sticky fingers, incoherently trying to imitate syllables that sounded suspiciously like words. 4
