I have always been an advocate of reading fiction whether you are young or old. It has always been a pleasurable pastime and a means to escape the real world since I was a young child. I have also learnt so much about people, places, personalities, food, etc. from reading fiction which has made learning easier and more enjoyable.
A lot of people see reading fiction as a waste of time and this stems from the notion that there are no benefits when you read fiction. They have been raised to see reading from an academic point of view where you are rewarded for reading. This is why you find most adults reading more non-fiction titles as they expect to learn one new concept or the other from them and don’t feel they would get the same rewards from reading fiction.

“The habit of reading is the only enjoyment in which there is no alloy; it lasts when every other pleasure fades” – Anthony Trollope
Quite a number of people have recently told me of their desire to develop a reading habit and have no clue how to begin. Some used to be voracious readers when they were younger but now with jobs, family or kids to think about, their love for reading has naturally waned. With little or no time to read or so it seems, they have asked me how I manage to read all the books that I read despite my busy schedule.
