Why you should READ LESS*

*as in putting less pressure on yourself with how MANY books you read, but rather focusing on the QUALITY of what you read. Basically, quality over quantity (as is the case with many things in life). Enjoy!

Some might read the title of the video and think "oh, cool, I don't have to read, I wasn't going to anyway". If that's the case, I suggest you watch the entire video first. Reading is very important, it has many benefits for your brain, and unfortunately, school prepares us from a young age to see reading as a chore or as something unpleasant. Then there's the other type of people who only read Personal Development and Self Help books, and that's mainly who I'm targeting with this video. The Self Help industry is making billions of dollars every year, often selling sub-par written content that gives the illusion of personal growth. There's so much more value in a novel, or a history book, than you will ever find in the average Self-improvement book. So although I'm talking about why you should read less, the moral of the story - spoiler alert - is why you should read more, or why you should be more selective with the type of books you're reading. Looking forward to the conversation in the comment section.



  • Happy to see the positive response to this type of video! Been reading the book recommendations you guys are leaving in the comments and tbh there's a lot of exciting stuff I want to read myself now haha! Keep 'em coming! 📚

  • When I was in 3rd grade, which was.. 8 years ago. My teacher told us to go to this book website and take a quiz that says how long or how understandable a book was. And then we would have a bunch of books to choose from. My mom even told me that I needed to read a certain amount of books to read so I could play for 1 hour. That's how I got an award for reading so many books during 3rd to 4th grade. We even had a little place to buy books. It could only stay for a week and would come back next year. I hope my old school was still doing this. It's what got me into reading an entire *singular* book in 5th grade that my classmate gave to the new school I switched to. (edit: I think its called blackbird.)

  • I really want to start reading a book I've had several just collecting dust but when I start to actually read it I get lost in the train of thought and eventually on what part I am reading. I also can't imagine the scenarios the book are describing my head is only filled with like the words that I am reading or blank. I am unable to absorb that information and internalise it.

  • I have a couple of book recommendations: -for the psychological genera, or more the realist one, I recommend "Optimists dies first" (hope it's the right title, the one in French is "Les optimistes meurent en premier"), it is a book about a girl and how her sister's death (+guilt) affected her daily life and how she changes to get better -I also recommend the book "Nerve", you might've of watched the movie but the book is really something, it can be intense at times (emotionally) and the ending is something I really liked, so I really recommend it -I recently started some Agatha Christie's books and I'm reading at the moment "Hercule's Poirot Christmas" (French: Le Noël d'Hercule Poirot", btw, the English title I'm not sure of it since I directly translate it from French). In the mystery genre and suspens, there's also "A stranger is watching" ("La nuit du renard" in French), I've read it recently and in my opinion it was really great. -For some French recommendation I would have "Le programme", some things are kinda hard to understand in the world building but even though I hated the ending, I still like reading all the way through it. Another book would be "Le cri", it is very short but I still loved reading it even though it was for a school work. There's also "Gamer" (note: the author is Pierre-Yve Villeneuve so you can find it easily) a book series that I stopped reading after a while, but I know a lot of people that enjoys the series. Btw, I have no idea if those have English translation. In the end, those were a few of the books I recommend, there's some more recommendations and if you wanna know others you can just ask the replies, I'd be happy to tell more. Just saying that a lot of the books I read are mostly directed towards teens and pre-teens considering the fact I'm still a minor and not that old.

  • Even though I don’t read much, a series of books I really like is: Rangers Apprentice. It’s a fantasy book which kind off takes place in medieval times, there are about 14 books in the series and the ones I’ve read are very good. Personally a book category I like is information books about certain fandoms, such as Star Wars or avatar, or basically whatever you may like. So you can learn more about the world or the science in the fiction (pun intended). For example books about how lightsabers work, if your into that sort of thing, or maps of the worlds from the fandom. Hope this helps 👍

  • online books, not big fat books🤣 idk why but if I have to read the same exact book, I prefer to read it online than to read it in big fat book version. Big fat book turns me off for some reason, it makes me think I'm too dumb for it🤣🤣🤣 but when I read online books, I can like almost finish the whole book in a day. Like if there are 500 chapters I can at least finish 200 chapters in one day! Which is equivalent to 200 pages in a book. Well I hope so🤣but yeah I do like reading but online! I don't get why this happens to me, but yeah generally I prefer online book. Yes I do use wattpad 😂 and yes I do have webnovel
