NY Times: Why You Should Read Books You Hate

I read this good piece in the NY Times today. The bottom line of the article is that reading something we don’t agree with or don’t find fascinating, provokes us to try to understand how we feel. It helps us take a position on our beliefs and figure out what we stand for. It got me thinking that it could be the case with anything in our lives really. While I like to think that I want to live by the motto… do what you love doing… the writer makes a good point. Doing something that you don’t like will often reveal a great deal about your nature and personality. I think as I get older, I value self-discovery more and more.
