    I dont like to read book, seeing the movie is better imo. When i was in your age i like to read Doraemon comics or play video games as one of my hobbies.

    If i were to read a book it won't be a novel, i like something educational.. I don't know what to suggest but i think u might like reading comics, dont go for Doraemon tho its old, go for something new.

    One of my spare bedrooms has become a library, a wall full of physical books from the early 1800s to current and hundreds more ebooks on my personal server that can be accessed by any device on my network at home...Not one book is fiction...

    I am reading the book Koh-i Noor the bloodthirsty history of India's most infamous diamond.
    Koh-i-Noor
    [​IMG]
    The Koh-i-Noor is a large, colourless diamond from the era of Wodiyar Kings of Mysore Karnataka, India, possibly in the 13th century. According to legend, it first weighed 793 carats uncut, although the earliest well-attested weight is 186 carats. The stone changed hands several times between various factions in Asia until ending up in the possession of Queen Victoria after the British conquest of the Punjab in 1849.

    Not everyone is the same my friend. In the way i see it, reading books tends to take up more time than just watching the movie.. I could use that other time for something else.

    @Athena ashford , there are free courses in edx. Some of the courses could become useful for your future use.. perhaps it might become a nice hobby also, who knows..

    edX

    I agree watching a movie is not the same as reading the book the movie was taken from. There are a lot of nuances missed in most movies from the book to the screen. Reading a book is an adventure watching a movie is only popcorn.

    I read The Book of Enoch about a month ago. I usually take notes when I read a book, but I only wrote down one thing. It was a character by the name of Semjaza on page 11 chapter 6:3. It was uncannily close to the proclaimed Pleiadian Semjase known mostly from Billy Meier's encounters. She's seemingly played a role throughout recorded history. Thoth claims to have been on Earth for 50,000 years and probably has her beat. Today while listening to a roundtable discussion with James Rink, Jessica & Peter the insider they confirmed she's in the Book of Enoch. If you like reading books of the bible I would recommend it, otherwise don't bother.

    That is commendable, but interestingly enough, you like the Netflix 'Lost In Space' show...

    Is there a reason you do not like to read fiction that can also explain why you like to watch fictional shows?

    Maybe that's where Billy Meier took the name from Semjaza and turned it into Semjase for his use...
