Why do some people love reading books? Why do others hate it? Some of this might be caused by what you have observed. If you have always been surrounded by people who read a million books but did nothing with their lives, you might not be interested in books. On the other hand, if you saw people's lives being changed by books you will likely love to read. Regardless, of your situation, pick up a book and read it. Readers get way ahead in life....yeah you heard me....Readers are leaders, as they say.
