Read a Book

Posted by: | Posted on: January 1, 2018

Let’s talk leisure. Depending on where you live and what your job is you might have little time. Cities like Washington, DC, Seattle, and NYC have known as all work and no play cities. Now, compare this to a place like South Carolina to Iowa. Life goes by at a slower pace.

Often times, people get tired of their situation. Someone with a fast life might want it to go by slower. Someone with a slower paced like might want some action. In my opinion, however, there should be some type of balance between the two. For this writing, I’m going to focus specifically on the person that has a busy life. After all, the point of this blog is leisure. The person in Iowa probably already has that! But, here are some tips for a person living in a busy city or with a busy life.

Slow down. You don’t have to stop. But you have to find some peace. A great way to do this is by reading. Reading takes you out of the world and into the world presented in the book. It can be a fiction or nonfiction book. I prefer fiction, at least in this part of my life. I enjoy reading about crime thrillers or fantasy stories. These stories make my imagination run wild. I like them because they take me out of the day-in and day-out of everyday life. Where can you find books?

Well, it really depends on what type of book you want. Newer books can be found in bookstores. Older books might be found in a library. I prefer the library because of two things. The first is that libraries have a large selection of books. The second is that books at the library are free! Enjoy a book this weekend.
