Because so many books are available—far exceeding our time to read them—it’s wise to be intentional about your choices. What do you need to learn? What will bring you joy? What will grow your faith?
We all have underlying reasons why we read; we just may not think about them very often.
I found this delighteful quote on one of the introductory posts for the Fall Into Reading Challenge.
I find it true that I don’t stop and think too often about why I choose specific books to read. I know my ultimate goal in reading is to learn. I want to experience life through the eyes of others in order to broaden my own knowledge and understanding. I want to be exposed to different ideas so I can learn to interact with them.
Even with that as an underlying reason as to why I read, I am still not always intentional about the books I pick up to read. Now, I want to learn to be intentional and thoughtful when I pick up a book to read.
