3 Reasons why reading books is a waste of time

A few months ago, I was at a bookshop in Lagos, Nigeria. As it’s my habit, I started picking out a whole lot of books and after I and the friend I went with had taken out so many books, the bookseller, who was obviously surprised by how many books I’m buying asked me a common question which goes like, “Do books change anything in you?”
As we had the conversation, this guy confessed that though he sells books, he doesn’t read them simply because when he reads, books don’t change anything in his life.
While you may be among a few people in the world who are convinced that books change lives, most people don’t, and this is apparent from the fact that only a very few people are committed readers. To most other people in the world, reading books is a waste of time, and that can be very true.
