The Bad Thing About Books
In an effort to become successful most people starting common denominator is to read a book on how to become successful. Reading those successful stories could be inspiring but the inspiration is where the danger lies. Another danger that comes from the book is if the book has much notoriety (i.e. 48 Laws of Power), the book is purchased just to show society that they’re in the “know”.
Books should be used to educate, entertain, inform, persuade, etc. but it shouldn’t be used as a simple image enhancer that the reader gain nothing from but likes on social media.
If people want to become truly better then the next time a book is in their possession, it must be established that this book isn’t just a photo optic, its a stack of pages that could potentially change your life.
Before I became an avid reader I too fell for the photo optics of having a book because it added to my image of intelligence. Although that is now in the past, I will use books to add to the core soul of my intelligence and not my social media, SO WILL YOU!
P.S. a picture of a book never hurt, sharing your daily reads is highly encouraged!
