Why Book Lists?
You often come across lists on the internet. There could be a list on dumb ways to die and a list that extols the benefits of making lists. Lists that help you overcome listlessness and lists that name things listing to one side. In short, lists are a way to get readers to absorb information from a piece of text while keeping them from having to use a substantial portion of their brains.
After all, reading a blog, where the text remains unbroken into portions that can be digested much more easily, can be a daunting task, after:
- You have returned home from a tiring day at work
- You spent all day at work, trying to motivate yourself to start working
- Having braved traffic jam after jam while commuting to and from work
See, what I did there?
So, we agree that lists make things easier to read. There is also an added advantage of the lists I intend to start making here on Midu Reads. They are going to be exclusively about books on a particular subject, for instance books with one-eyed unicorns in them or lists about books that are about lists etc.
Moreover, the books on this list are going to include only those books, which I have read and can figuratively vouch for. That means, there will be really short lists and really long ones. It also means that I will keep adding to them, if I read more books that belong on a particular list.
