There are people who complain or make the excuse that they simply do not have enough time in the day to read. Of those people there are those who seem to spend far more time than they should on their mobiles or watching TV until late into the night. The question could be asked, or it could be argued that, via the mobiles and the TV, people are, in actual fact, reading. And yet they are not. Not really.
It has become as clear as daylight that reading interventions are necessary for people from all walks of life, not just those who never had the benefit of even the most basic education, from junior to high school. Statistics, and these are quite frightening at times, reveal that not enough people are reading as they should. Or if they were readers, as in regular readers of books and newspapers, they may have given up the habit.
It has to be said that reading is quite a necessary exercise. No matter what kind of profession, trade or job you are doing, you will be reading at some stage or another. Or you will, at least, be required to do so. And it becomes a sore bone of contention if you are not able to do so. Or simply choose not to do so. Unless you have been diagnosed with a particular condition (which can in any case be treated), you have the ability to read.
And not just to read, but to read well. And not just read because you have to but read because you want to. You have no idea what you are missing out on. Well, if you have read this far then, progress has been made. Well done!
