We become what we read

We become what we read

Literary works entertain us, teach us and influence us. When we read literary works, we enrich our understanding of others, the world, and ourselves. In a sense, we become what we read.

However, the ability to recognize how the author accomplishes these things will allow you to further deepen your appreciation and gain more benefits from literary works.

How to reap the benefits of reading literature

  • Pay close attention to the text from the beginning. It will prepare you to reflect, participate, and ask questions.   
  • Read and then read again. There are so many things that happen in literature that you cannot understand everything the first time you read it.   
  • Read slowly. Read more ambitions work slower. Take time to enjoy the way the author expresses his thoughts and reflect on what he tells you.   
  • Reading some parts of the text aloud will help you notice what you might miss when reading silently.

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.

Ashley Anthony

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

Sean Green

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.

Laetitia Berton

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!

Giovanna Scalzone

Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.

Ghazala Begum

Jamyson Haug
