Modern technology is also helpful in saving time. Planning a trip has also become like a knife through butter because of modern technology as it allows you to find the traffic condition and many easy routes to your desired destination. You can also get information about the weather forecast before going to a particular place. In past letters were the common medium of communication. Advancement in modern technology has replaced letters with instant messaging apps. You can now enjoy a video call, share your images and stories with your friends and family members.
The use of social media has made our life easier but due to excessive usage of the apps, we are addicted to it. The apps have made us closer to faraway people but made us distant to our family members and relatives. Mostly teenagers and kids are addicted to video games, smartphones and laptops.
What steps should be taken so that people again started book reading habits along with the usage of technologies?
Create a reading environment
To encourage book reading the first step is to create such an environment so that people would be attracted towards it. The library is the best place to seek knowledge and improve reading abilities. If such an environment is made in our houses then it will be possible that we can encourage people in our surroundings to develop book-reading habits.
We should encourage reading not only at home but at every place. Reading is everywhere, you can encourage students to read the detailed instructions given in a booklet about the usage of instruments. Whenever you buy any video game you are provided with a small booklet, try to read out every step
Set a Role Model
Act as a role model to others so that they may take an interest in reading books especially kids. When you read storybooks and magazines because of their attractive cover and colourful pages they will take an interest. Encourage your group fellows, friends and especially kids to join you while reading any interesting book and ask them to share their ideas as well so that they will be able to develop a habit of reading and understand the meanings
Keep reading material in your surroundings
The best way is to keep reading material such as books, magazines and other reading stuff in your surroundings so that other people may understand that the reading habit is not limited to schools and colleges.
Encourage others to visit the library
One of the best ways to encourage others is to visit a library. The library is the best place to search for different kinds of books, magazines and newspapers under a roof. Moreover, the environment of the library is calm and you may enjoy the visit by searching for different books. You may also notice that books are placed on shelves in a specific order. In this way, you may also learn how to arrange different items in a particular place.
Explore different book genres
Find out different book types based on history, comic, sci-fiction and biographies. Search different kinds of books and encourage others to read out their favourite book. Once you develop a habit of reading then you may understand that book reading is not as harder as we think it is.
In the Modern world, the lack of reading culture among the young generation nowadays is greatly affecting the quality of graduates produced by the nation’s highest institutions. Modern people are forgetting/ignoring the fact that book reading is the best way by which one’s intellectuality can develop. It is true that technology helps a lot to make our daily activities easy.
Even though, Learning how to develop a reading habit is a great investment of time. Most successful people acknowledge how their reading habits added value throughout their careers. Now that does not mean that reading alone will make you a billionaire, but it does assist you in becoming a better version of yourself. Cultivating the habit of reading isn’t that hard.
