- You need to know the language (read and write) to read anything in that language
- But you don’t need to be proficient to start reading, for the number of books exceeds the number of language levels there are
- Because of the 2 above: reading in itself is a skill, not a judging tool of how well you use a language
I respect people who don’t read, because if everyone on Earth walks around with a book in their hands and their eyes fixated on the pages, that’s boring.
Yet, to say that no one ever falls asleep with a book open and resting on the side is to lie. To say that you fall asleep when reading means reading will never be for you is to declare a false myth.
The right way to say it: I haven’t found the right book for me, and if I have found the right book, I haven’t been patient enough with the book itself.
