The greatest book is the deepest book, one that you just cannot put down. That’s what a good book should do, suck you in. You can’t stop, won’t stop, and just need more. In this blog post, I will be talking about my favorite books, and how they suck me in, like a clean, worded, vacuum cleaner of wonder.
One of my favorite books right now is The Soul of Basketball, by Ian Thomsen.
Yes, that is how you spell his last name. The reason why this book is so good is because of the way it’s written. The lore of which explains the history of basketball, the history of the NBA, and the suspense of which he carries for 100 pages. Finally, he showed LeBron James go to Miami to win chips along with Dwayne Wade and Chris Bosh. This book has 750 pages in it, so I’m not going to be putting it down any time soon. What’s your favorite book? Put your answer in the comments section below.
The best book is one that’s not too long, or short. A smooth, 250 pages. I know, ironic coming from the guy whose favorite book is 3 times as long as that, but that’s usually the case with books. They can’t be too long, because then the reader will feel guilty when they can’t finish it because it’s too boring. But it can’t be too short because what if the book is a masterpiece, but only 50 pages. The reader will feel sad, because the book’s already done. But with a nice 250 page book, the book won’t feel too long, but isn’t too short. If a book is bad, and too long, you’ve wasted your money. If a book’s too short, and great, you’re sad. So a nice 250 page book can be finished in 15 to 25 days if you pace yourself.
I am going to be honest. Reading is usually boring for me. I’d much rather play basketball at my house or kick field goals on our miniature post. But when it comes down to it, I can love reading. Some books just aren’t for me, and I am a picky reader. But reading is possibly the most healthy non exercising hobby. It has helped with anxiety when I feel stressed. It has helped me with my well being. You should read too, because it could help you with these problems.
