Reading enlarges the mind and the heart. It frees us from the narrow confines of our own experience. Knowing how other people view important matters helps us decide what we ourselves think and feel. Reading also helps us connect with others and realize our shared humanity.
Someone once wrote, "We read in order to know that we are not alone. We grow more sympathetic and understanding because we realize that others are like us. A Personal Story about the Value of Reading I did little reading as a boy, with one notable exception: I loved comic books. In particular, I can remember reading comics at lunch time.
Since I attended a grade school that was only several blocks away, I could walk home at noon. There I would drink chocolate milk and eat my favorite sandwichbaloney, mustard, and potato chips layered between two pieces of white bread. I would sit at the kitchen table with my two sisters, home from the same school, as well as my father, home for lunch from his job with a local insurance company.
The four of us sat silently because we were all reading. Coffee cup in hand, my mother hovered nearby, always a bit frustrated, I suspect. She was in the mood for conversation, but her family was too busy reading.
Even when I went on to high school, I was more likely to read a comic book than anything else. I had no interest in reading such books, especially ones that seemed to be about, as I remember saying at the time, "old dead stuff.
I was rescued by a series of comics called classic comic books, which were illustrated stories of famous novels. Classic comics helped me pass tests and do book reports. They also kept me from actually having to sit down and read a bookan activity that I never imagined could be a source of enjoyment. I developed a routine after school: get my homework done, do any household chores, eat dinner, and then spend the whole evening watching the tube.
Fortunately, something happened in the summer before my junior year that changed my life. The country was in the middle of a recession, so I was not able to get a job. I felt too old to spend the summer playing back-alley baseball with neighborhood buddies, and there was not enough on daytime TV this was before cable to hold my interest. Except for a once-a-week job of cutting my aunt's grass, I had nothing to do and felt restless and empty.
Then, sitting on my front porch one day in early June, I saw a public service message on the side of a bus that was rumbling noisily down the street. I remember the exact words: "Open your mindread a book.
On general principle I never liked being told what I should do. I also resented the implication that my mind was closed just because I didn't read books. I thought to myself, "For the heck of it, I'm going to read a book just so I know for sure there's nothing there.
I spent a couple of days reading the story.
When I was done, I had to admit that I had enjoyed it and that I was proud of myself for actually having read an entire book. But in the perverse frame of mind that was typical of me at age 15,1 thought to myself, "I just happened to pick out the one story in the world that is actually interesting.
Chances are there aren't any more. I selected one that I had heard of and that seemed to have some promise. It was The Adventures of Tom Sawyer, by Mark Twain, and it was a hardbound book now so old that its binding cracked when I opened it up.
I began reading, and while the activities of Tom were interesting enough, it was his girlfriend Becky Thatcher who soon captured my complete attention.
My adolescent heart raced when I thought of her, and for a while I thought about her night and day. For the first time in my life, I had fallen in loveincredibly enough, with a character in a book! The character of Becky helped show me what power a book can have. Tom had a friend named Huck Finn, about whom Mark Twain had written another book.
I figured this book might tell me more about Becky. As it turned out, it didn't, but by pure chance I wound up reading one of the great novels of American literature. If Becky had made my blood race, the story of Huck Finn and the trip that he and his friend Jim took on a raft down the Mississippi River caught me up in a different but equally compelling way. I saw a whole stage of characters who felt very human and whose stories seemed very real.
