While I love what I’m studying, which is how to do medical coding and do technical work on the interfaces within the medical installation I’ll be working with, my dream job has been to be a librarian for as long as I can remember.
I believe that reading is critical. Not only for academic purposes but nonprofessional as well. Reading gives knowledge on topics you usually wouldn’t study. It gives enjoyment and solace. You can find an adventurer in a book or you can find calm. It exercises the imagination, keeps one creative. Reading can keep your mind active.
One of my favorite, George R. R. Martin has a number of quotes about reading that hold true in my mind.
“A mind needs books like a sword needs a whetstone.”
“A reader lives a thousand lives before he dies. The man who never reads lives only one.”
