Love books? Are you a book lover who refuses to spend money on books? This was exactly how I felt a few years back. I considered borrowing a book from the library or opting for e-reading. However, later on, I discovered certain facts as to why one should spend money on books.
Cut off the rush:
Consider the case when you borrowed a book from a friend or the library. And then you’re suddenly preoccupied with work, a vacation, or anything else. You haven’t had time to read a book in a long time. What would you do in this situation? You need to return the book, but time is running out. You will either opt to read the book too quickly, skipping several paragraphs or pages, or you will return the book unread. If this is the case, then what is the point of reading a book?
Now imagine the owner of the book is one and only you. This time, there are no limitations or deadlines. You can read whenever you want and at your leisure. If you possess the book, you can read it at your own leisure and enjoy it. You can go over the book and study it. Before moving on, you can pause to consider what you’ve read. I’ve read a couple of books that took months to read and one that took almost a year. If I hadn’t owned those books, I would have been disturbed while reading them and might not have finished them.
Read again and again:
Have you ever missed the chance to re-read a book just because you don’t own the book? Unless you own a book, it is impossible for you to re-read a book. Are you going to borrow it every single time for the same book? If you say that you were a one-time reader, then you’re missing so many things. By clicking this link, you will get to know why you should read a book twice. Whenever you need someone or whenever you want to be motivated, you can just pick the book from your shelf and start reading.
It’s yours when you spend:
Can you highlight the words/sentences that you like the most when you borrow a book from someone? Is it possible for you to sign your name on the opening page of the book? On the one hand, highlighting in a book is a delightful way to interact with the text while also leaving a physical memento of how the book made you feel at the time.
What is the point of reading a book if you don’t highlight the beautiful words that gave you goosebumps? This is only possible if the book is yours. When you buy a book, you own it. You have complete ownership of that copy and are free to do whatever you want with it. So spend on books!
You enjoy seeing the book on your bookshelves:
Okay, this isn’t for everyone, but if you have favorite books, putting them on your shelf might inspire, encourage, or simply make you smile. The mere presence of a book on your shelves makes you feel valuable. It will inspire you to read more. Furthermore, if someone comes to your house, they will respect you since they will believe you are a smart and wise person since you own several books.
You show support for an author if you spend:
When you spend on a book, you are expressing your support for the author and his or her work. Authors who do not earn money from book sales will be in trouble and will not be able to continue writing, especially if they are published by a traditional publisher or do not have another source of income. Authors can write more novels if their books sell well. You can then go on to read more of their work. It’s a win-win situation for everyone.
Books are made up of both material and intangible components. When you buy a book, you are not purchasing the book’s tangible qualities, such as the paper and ink used to create it. You also purchase the intangible rewards of reading fiction, such as a sense of fantasy, romance, adventure, or mystery. When you buy nonfiction, you’re also getting information, motivation, and assistance.
Always remember one thing: books are an investment for a better future!
