*as in putting less pressure on yourself with how MANY books you read, but rather focusing on the QUALITY of what you read. Basically, quality over quantity (as is the case with many things in life). Enjoy!

Some might read the title of the video and think "oh, cool, I don't have to read, I wasn't going to anyway". If that's the case, I suggest you watch the entire video first. Reading is very important, it has many benefits for your brain, and unfortunately, school prepares us from a young age to see reading as a chore or as something unpleasant. Then there's the other type of people who only read Personal Development and Self Help books, and that's mainly who I'm targeting with this video. The Self Help industry is making billions of dollars every year, often selling sub-par written content that gives the illusion of personal growth. There's so much more value in a novel, or a history book, than you will ever find in the average Self-improvement book. So although I'm talking about why you should read less, the moral of the story - spoiler alert - is why you should read more, or why you should be more selective with the type of books you're reading. Looking forward to the conversation in the comment section.

  • Happy to see the positive response to this type of video! Been reading the book recommendations you guys are leaving in the comments and tbh there's a lot of exciting stuff I want to read myself now haha! Keep 'em coming! 📚

  • My very cliché and basic recommendations: 1984, Animal Farm (George Orwell/Eric Blair, both have been read in French), And Then There Were None (Agatha Christie, I’ve read it in French), The Haunting of Hill House (a very contemplative book and a different kind of horror, by Shirley Jackson, which I have read in English)

  • Being a good reader isn't about how many books you read, it's about how well you comprehend the information the book gave you after you're done. Reading is supposed to be something enjoyable and fun. Why would you want to read a book you're not interested in? I've read 300 page books in an afternoon - but ask me to read a 10 page article on a subject I find tedious or dull, and I've already got a headache. Don't let the amount of books you read determine your intelligence or worth; and don't let others dictate your reading choices. As long as you're reading because it makes you happy, you'll get more out of that book than anyone who reads it as a "challenge".

  • This is kind of a side note, but one thing about reading books that are regarded as classics or milestones in literature: if you don't enjoy them, don't read them. If you think the The Old Man and the Sea is boring, don't finish it. Forcing yourself to read something because you want the academia points isn't as gratifying as it might seem. You can definitely appreciate what certain books did for their genres/mediums/time period, but they're not all going to be for you, which is perfectly fine.

  • When I was in 3rd grade, which was.. 8 years ago. My teacher told us to go to this book website and take a quiz that says how long or how understandable a book was. And then we would have a bunch of books to choose from. My mom even told me that I needed to read a certain amount of books to read so I could play for 1 hour. That's how I got an award for reading so many books during 3rd to 4th grade. We even had a little place to buy books. It could only stay for a week and would come back next year. I hope my old school was still doing this. It's what got me into reading an entire *singular* book in 5th grade that my classmate gave to the new school I switched to. (edit: I think its called blackbird.)

  • I really want to start reading a book I've had several just collecting dust but when I start to actually read it I get lost in the train of thought and eventually on what part I am reading. I also can't imagine the scenarios the book are describing my head is only filled with like the words that I am reading or blank. I am unable to absorb that information and internalise it.

  • I have a couple of book recommendations: -for the psychological genera, or more the realist one, I recommend "Optimists dies first" (hope it's the right title, the one in French is "Les optimistes meurent en premier"), it is a book about a girl and how her sister's death (+guilt) affected her daily life and how she changes to get better -I also recommend the book "Nerve", you might've of watched the movie but the book is really something, it can be intense at times (emotionally) and the ending is something I really liked, so I really recommend it -I recently started some Agatha Christie's books and I'm reading at the moment "Hercule's Poirot Christmas" (French: Le Noël d'Hercule Poirot", btw, the English title I'm not sure of it since I directly translate it from French). In the mystery genre and suspens, there's also "A stranger is watching" ("La nuit du renard" in French), I've read it recently and in my opinion it was really great. -For some French recommendation I would have "Le programme", some things are kinda hard to understand in the world building but even though I hated the ending, I still like reading all the way through it. Another book would be "Le cri", it is very short but I still loved reading it even though it was for a school work. There's also "Gamer" (note: the author is Pierre-Yve Villeneuve so you can find it easily) a book series that I stopped reading after a while, but I know a lot of people that enjoys the series. Btw, I have no idea if those have English translation. In the end, those were a few of the books I recommend, there's some more recommendations and if you wanna know others you can just ask the replies, I'd be happy to tell more. Just saying that a lot of the books I read are mostly directed towards teens and pre-teens considering the fact I'm still a minor and not that old.
