10 Easy to Read Books

Our life is a learning process from the start to the end. We learn how to sit, how to walk, how to eat, how to talk, how to read…. When we stop learning, we will start dying.

It’s important to have a degree, a diploma, but you don’t have to spend thousands of dollars to accomplish that, you just need to be curious about life and willing to learn continuously new things. You can chose how you want to learn. You want to be told what to learn and how to learn, or you want to do it in your own way? The end of the road is probably the same. The difference is the way you are doing it. One of them could be boring for you and the other on may be fun. I always chose the fun part. I have read on my own a lot, learning on my own seemed to be easier than listening hours and hours other people.

I won’t tell you that I’m the person who will not buy an audiobook or an e-book and read only books because I do. The truth is that I love listening the audiobooks when I’m driving. The information I get from books is way more interesting than what I would get listening to the radio.

Anyways these are ten books that are easy to read:

 

1.Cosmos by Carl Sagan

2.Outliers: The Story of Success by Malcolm Gladwell

3.A short History of Nearly Everything by Bill Bryson

4.The Moral Animal: Why We Are, the Way We Are by Robert Wright

5.Thinking Fast and Slow by Daniel Kahneman

6.Freakononics: A Rogue Economist Explores the Hidden Side of Everything by Steven D. Levitt & Steven J. Dubner

Why should you read?

Books are a very important thing in our life. We begin our journey through life as kids looking at the pictures in books. Then later on through kindergarten and elementary we discover the story behind the pictures and our imagination takes off. Sadly by the time we are adults we stop dreaming and reading.

Did you know that last year in US nearly a quarter of the adult population did not read one single book?

The number of non-book readers has tripled in the last 40 years. We are so distracted with, tv, radio and other new gadgets that we forget how happy we were when we were reading a new princess or pirate story when we were kids.

We all know that the level of education people have its closely related with the number of books that they read. Even those with a little college read more than the people who barely finished their high school. Children who grow up reading,  and supported by their parents in this journey are more likely to enroll in higher education.

Today’s technology makes it possible to read even if you are driving or doing other things. You can listen to a book through audio books anytime.

Reading has a lot of benefits and not just for those in school. The mental stimulation that comes from reading can potentially slow down the Alzheimer’s diseases and can enhance your memory. It helps people expand their vocabulary, helps empathize with other cultures, other people.

Most kids that can’t read proficiently by the end of 4th grade will end up in jail or on welfare when they finished school, or they will drop out of school before finishing it. Over 40% of the prisoners in the US jails read at the 4th-grade level.

Worse is that one out of four children in the US grows up without learning to read. Those who end up in schools but they are not helped to read proficiently by the 3rd grade have a great chance to drop out of school.

Reading is associated with the crime level. 60% of people in jail are illiterate. (more…)
