An Argument for Reading

Let’s create a syllogism for why you should read today.

Premise 1: All experiences that challenge our thinking are thought-provoking and valuable.

Premise 2: Reading books challenge our thinking.

Conclusion: Therefore, reading books is thought-provoking and valuable.

    Now, you might argue that many books are poorly written and not thought-provoking. But I would argue that thought-provoking doesn’t always mean positive or educational. Some of the most thought-provoking books in my life have been poorly written. They’ve helped me understand my interests and refine my tastes.

    If you’re tired of AI conversations, social drudgery, and the daily grind, pick up a book. It will break the monotony of life and give you something interesting to chew on, which sounds like a breath of fresh air.

    Until tomorrow, read slowly – take notes – apply the ideas.
