I'm going to ramble a bit, mainly because the Magic Storyline has been very good in recent months, but also because I'm taking part in a reading competition this year.

So many people don't take the time to read these days, and that worries me.
Many of the readers her are Magic players, people who go to social events to compete in a game of strategy, luck, reading, math, and fantasy. The storyline is told in articles, and develops entire worlds for us to experience.
And that sort of reading is just something I feel that games, movies, and TV simply cannot convey as well in my experiences in the recent months.
Reading lets people engage with worlds and thoughts and characters on so much deeper of a level than I've felt with movies and games.
And people always say: the book is better than the movie. Don't take that lightly- if you don't enjoy reading, I don't blame you- everyone has their own likes and dislikes.
And if you need inspiration to read, try some incentives, follow your passion in stories, or get recommendations of good authors you may like. A book can truly be a portal to another world.
