Let me know if a thread like this one exist or not.
Thanks a bunches.


Here I go:

1) Some people don't have the time to sit down and read a good book. Truth be told, people have busy lives.

2) Some people see no point in reading a book because they might find it boring.

3) They only prefer to read for educational purposes.

4) Some people can't visualize when they read(like me)

5) Some people rather write a book than read one.

6) Some people have a learning disability or a physical one.

7) They haven't found the right book yet.


There are many reasons why people don't read fiction or non-fiction books for enjoyment. Do you know some reasons/ Are these reasons alright with you?

Books are a big time investment which you can't really multi task while reading.

"Why read the book when I can watch the movie," is a popular answer I hear. None of them seam like a decent reason to avoid reading.

The movie isn't always right though. It's enjoyable but not correct.

These days I just don't have the time to justify on a book unless it's for educational purposes . And even then I prefer hands on learning books are good but blood and dirt are the greatest teachers and will always be.

In school, people are often forced to read books that they are not interested in. This might make them think that books are boring and stupid and for nerds. They don't give books a second chance because their previous experience with books is super bad.

That is also a good reason as to why they prefer not to read books.

These days, I just don't feel like reading all that much. I've spent a good chunk of my childhood with my nose buried in novels, instead of television, games, and the Internet. I suppose that I'm simply exploring whatever else there is, in the place of reading.

It's a mix of #4 and #7 for me

I read every day. I am as busy as the next man, but I make the time to read. It's the best way to unwind after a long day. I can't understand people who don't read. I would be less shocked by someone who said that they don't like to breathe air.

I agree that the movies are not correct since they have time constraints and such. Some of these guys are fresh out of high school and are tried of reading because of their text books (required reading). My dad is the librarian for a christian high school and the unused books are disappearing slowly off the shelfs. Cultural items are being put up in their place such as First Nation pottery, Dutch clogs, and a Japanese tea set (saki set, kids do not know the difference anyway).
