    Reading for enjoyment is fine and i understand why people would do that, but reading books for knowledge isn’t efficient is it? You could summarize the most important thing/ the message from most of these books and post them on the internet or whatever. Where is the value in reading books for knowledge when you can read the specific text needed for that knowledge? What are your thoughts about this?

    You don’t know what you don’t know.

    Brief synopses of books deprive you of much of the important details that cannot be neatly summarized in bullet points you read online. They’ll only ever relay the most surface-level information. There’s a lot of great value to be had in reading things fully

    I would say it teaches you the importance of delayed gratification and improves our generations decaying attention span. Of course you can read a summary in like 15 and get the key points and all that but would you really retain the information that way. Also need full context for those points too. I think reading the book and highlighting your own key notes is way better.

    Anyone can read some bullet points off a study guide then pass a test on them a day later but u gonna remember that knowledge in 5 years? Characters and stories are memorable

    Reading itself makes it easier for your brain to make connections between ideas because of how rhe process works

    I see, i’ve been trying to get more efficient with my time so i thought i could shave some off by reading summaries instead but i guess i won’t get the full benefits doing that

    I think about this often

    Like i would read a whole book for learning purposes by taking notes and then i look at my notes and I’m like “I could’ve just watched a short YouTube video about this book and I would’ve gotten the same result”

    Real talk, it does feel like that sometimes, very torn on how to approach gaining knowledge now. Books are an antique invention there must be better/easier ways to absorb knowledge

    If you’re full of s*** you can read a thousand great books and not really progress much. If you’re smart and open minded you lead yourself where you’re curiosities take you and allow your mind to relax, in the moments of silence your accumulated knowledge will provide valuable insights.

    You can’t learn everything.

    reading for school is tough because it can often be something you’re not interested in

    but generally reading is powerful if you utilize what you’ve read, bullshitting can take you far but reading can take you farther, the real knowledge is in the details

    if a yt vid will aid in cementing an idea in your head as opposed to a book, I feel like whats the difference? your quest is for knowledge anyways, use both to supplement your acquisition of information

    reading for enjoyment can also be very valuable

    I hadn't read a book in years, but the last 5 months I've been just buying books and books of all different topics. Only read 3 so far, I just have to make it into a habit

    Plus all the s*** I read on my phone. I wish I can just downloaded it into my brain. So much s*** I wanna read about

  • Reading demystifies the world we live in

  • reading is not just for acquiring knowledge. knowledge is forgotten. reading is also about learning how to think in a critical, abstract way, which is done more so through the process than the information itself. the medium is the message.

  • I jus read manga
