4.1.2022 – read for enjoyment

read for enjoyment
that reading is a pleasure
one of the greatest

Adapted from the line, “I must remind you here of something that I have already insisted upon, namely that I am very strongly of opinion that you should read for enjoyment. To my mind it is very ill-advised to look upon reading as a task; reading is a pleasure, one of the greatest that life affords, and if these books of which I am now going to speak to you do not move, interest or amuse you, there is no possible reason for you to read them.” from the essay, Books and You: A Dissertation Upon Reading by W. Somerset Maugham.
