As a lifelong reader with a BA in English Lit, I think it’s safe to say I’m a bookworm. I’ve always been attracted more to the arts than to the sciences, but that’s changing since I’ve been reading T-Mag.
Through the vicissitudes of my life reading (and training since I started) has always been a constant for me. No matter how down I’ve been, reading has always been a source of inspiration and the path to greater self-knowledge and self-growth.
Aside from majoring in English, I took elective courses in philosophy, classics, history and religion during my pursuit of higher education.
These subjects, and the many others I explored before and have tackled since obtaining my degree, have opened new vistas for me, expanded my horizons, and generally made me a more interesting person.
Reading has also exposed me to many different points of view and helped sharpen my critical-thinking abilities.
What has reading done for you?
