Reading Is Amazing and Everyone Should Do It.

Believe it or not I do other activities apart from gaming. One of my main hobbies is reading. I can literally sit for a good solid 2 hours or more, depending on how entrancing the book is. Reading is something I would never have imagined myself doing five or so years ago. Of course it was needed when at School but that was only because I had to.


The school I went to had brilliant Library facilities but unfortunately I never took advantage of it. They always had World Book week (or something like that), where an outside book company would come to the school and set up shop. We, as the students were then given vouchers to hopefully entice us into buying at least one book. Well, the majority of those vouchers ended up being tossed onto the floor along with pencil shavings and the remains of an eraser.

My favourite writer, Chris Ryan has recently released his latest book called, Osama. I love the way Chris goes into so much detail. Detail which makes you want to read on. Detail which makes you question whether or not the events you have just read, have possibly happened in real life. There is something so amazing about being given the opportunity to think, after many hours of putting the book down. There are so many theories in which you could come up with that relate to real life troubles. For example, was Bin Laden already dead upon arrival of the Navy SEALS? Did the Navy SEALS really put a bullet in the skull of Bin Laden? Could he possibly of been killed by one of the guards that was living with him, just to save him from being taken hostage by the SEALS and interrogated to extract information?


Reading is a powerful thing and everyone should try it. It doesn’t matter if you’re not the strongest of readers, just get stuck in. Believe it or not, reading is another form of entertainment. Let your mind run free, take in the description and let it digest in your brain.

If you are like me and play video games such as Call of Duty or Battlefield and really want to take up reading, be sure to check out Chris Ryan’s fiction section when you get the chance…. The chance? Go do it NOW!!!

    What did you think of the Madrid 1-1 Man U game the other night? I thought De Gea had a great game
