Hello people! We were asked to write about a book that we had read or a reading experience. On my “special” case, I am not into reading but I will take advantage of this opportunity to explain the reason why I do not like reading.
When it comes to books, I must be interested in the story or the topic that it deals with.


I get bored easily. In the case of books, there is a lot time devoted to the descriptions of places and actions. I know that the author must use words carefully to help us imagine the places and the way in which things occur. I am a person that needs to read action every 3 or 4 lines, otherwise I get bored.

Well… is not that I don’t like books in general. I prefer reading things like comic books, manga, and a history book that talks about a topic that I’m interested in. 
For example, I was very interested in the Second World War and I read a few books and articles about it. As I read I got amazed of how things happened and how Germany prepared itself for war. I imagined the situation perfectly and there were no SO many descriptions as in a novel. 

I also enjoy reading manga. For those of you that don’t know what manga is, the term manga in Japan is a word used to refer to both comics and cartooning. "Manga" as a term used outside Japan refers to comics originally published in Japan. I know that this kind of reading is not as rich in vocabulary as a novel or other sort of books. But I enjoy them very much because they are full of action and humor.

And well friends that’s all I wanted to say. Let me know what you think…


  1. Great post, Emi! J. K. Rowling says, "“If you don’t like to read, you haven’t found the right book.” ;)

  2. I agree with Claudio! However, I love comics too. And manga I haven't really given it the opportunity it deserves. I've read quite a few but I know I have to read more before I can make my mind about it.
    Another thing, not all books are the way you described them. I also get bored with that kind of writing. Try reading the book I recommended in my blog. Don't read Bradbury because you are going to end up hating books (I love him, but he can be a little bit too descriptive most of the times)
    Anyway, good post man.

  3. Interesting post Emi.!!! Thanks for sharing it.. I didn't know the term Manga.. Now I can get an idea of it.. Thanks!!! 😀

  4. I agree with your classmates' comments: there are books that are not so descriptive. In fact, nowadays there are several American writers who specialize in short stories and who write mostly dialogues.... But one should also respect others' feelings and tastes: if you do not like reading so much, ... that's ok, too!
