What a book teaches us

It is amazing the amount of information one can consume. Really, in any form.

Audiobooks, for example, are great but books, the regular kind, have something special about them over every other form.

Books allow us space to really think about a subject.

You can blast through an audiobook in a couple sittings. Even quicker if you decide to increase the speed.

You can’t do that with a 300-page book. You have to put in the hours. Which means you have to think about the subject even longer.

Books also don’t allow you to drive or do the dishes either.

Having time to really think about something while fully immersing yourself? We don’t get many opportunities anymore to do things like that.

It isn’t how much media we consume. Rather, it is how well we consume it.
