Reading Induces Further Reading



As I shared with you all that I have been reading a lot these days. That’s why I find no time to write. However, today I have taken out some time to share something interesting about “reading” with you all. As the experiences vary from individual to individual, my experience about reading is totally mine; readers may hold opinion other than my experience. That’s totally fine with me.

I start with the assertion that “reading induces further reading”. It is just like a chain reaction, i.e. once it starts, it’s hard to control given the fact that you are not reading to pass or qualify any examination or write a written paper/test. Here, we are talking about the reading as a hobby, where an individual has a strong urge to read book of certain specific theme(s) or topic(s) of his or her interest.


Let us prove the assertion under the two conditions that emerge after you finish reading a book. The first condition is that you feel satisfied after you finish reading the book on a certain theme by a particular author. The second condition is that you do not feel satisfied after you finish reading the book on a certain theme by a particular author.   

Under the first condition, i.e. the state of satisfaction, you find the content in the book interesting and agree with the perspectives, ideas, discussions and data offered by the author. This proves that you have had good experience while you were reading that book. Given the condition that you have a strong urge, you will look forward for another dig at the ecstatic state of good experience that you gained while reading by either re-reading the same book after a break, or finding another book, by the same author or by a different author, on the same theme, to multiply your experience of joy (Just recall people saying that I have seen the movie Sholay or Titanic 20 times.). What happens here? Simple! A (good) reading induces further (good) reading.

Under the second condition, i.e. the state of dissatisfaction, you do not find the content of the book interesting; author’s ideas, discussions, perspectives, data etc., do not prove strong enough to influence you at all. However, since you have a strong urge to read something interesting, you will go to the nearest library or meet an expert and grab the copy of next available good book on the same theme and start reading it. This will happen due to the previous bad reading. So, what happens here? Simple! A (bad) reading induces a further (good) reading.

Thus, in both the conditions, reading induces further reading. It is just like kissing; if your first kiss is enjoyable, you will go for the second, and third, and fourth, and n number kisses in order to enjoy the kissing, and if your first kiss is not enjoyable, you will still try kissing the second, the third, the fourth and the nth number of times in order to perfect the art of performing an enjoyable kiss on the lips of your partner.

Why people exercise

Exercise helps to keep body fit, flexible, toned-up and agile. A fit and agile body adds around five or more years to an average person’s life. If one exercises, all physiological systems like respiratory, nervous, skeleton, endocrine, blood circulation, etc., function perfectly well. A regular schedule of exercise keeps the metabolism in control, helps to burn extra calories, provides extra power when the body gets tired and thus works towards self-assurance and self-motivation. One hardly complains of stress and depression, which are two most common factors that cause various ailments and diseases, and lead to slow death, these days.
