For those who are not aware, T.E.A.C.H. Enterprises is currently having an 11.11 eBook sale right now. Since 12:01am 1 November 2021, an $11 credit is given to everyone who purchases just 1 eBook from my collection of 9 publications. This credit will allow you to get your next eBook for FREE (if it is $11 and below in selling price), or you can top up the balance if your selected choice costs more. Buy more than 1 eBook on your first purchase, and you will receive more $11 credits for your subsequent orders. Do take note that this offer ends at 11:59pm 11 November 2021, and all credits must be utilized by the end of November (after which they will be deemed invalid). Besides the 11.11 credit, you will also be partaking in an ongoing fundraising campaign that I have started since early 2020; partial proceeds from your eBook purchase amount will be channeled to the Breast Cancer Foundation and Singapore Cancer Society, so do consider contributing more as you will be doing your part for charity in the process as well. I look forward to your generous support in due time, and here’s wishing you a blessed year-end ahead!
Q1. Can you learn from books that teach life lessons? Books can teach us life lessons. Readers know this is true. While books help kids form identities and confirm values, no high-stakes test does that. No amount of mandated progress monitoring does what books do, which is to build a bridge between experience, imagination, and emotion. Q2. What can books that teach life lessons do for us? We all know that everyone has a story to tell, but it's through reading that we understand those stories. The more you read, the more you want. Books can also teach us about critical thinking. Last but not least, books can teach us about ourselves. Q3. What should one learn from books that teach life lessons? Examples of life lessons that one should learn include having good manners, adopting a healthy selection of food intake, how to lose gracefully, time management, cultivating compassion as well as the ability to practice forgiveness. Q4. Can books that teach life lessons actually change you? Reading can allow you to see what is important to you through the kind of books you choose. This can greatly increase your own creativity, sometimes sparking other ideas in your life. It can also make you feel not so alone, especially if it is a memoir of someone who's been through the same thing you have. Books allow us to undergo a 'mental' rather than a 'physical' experience, which some people may prefer to instead. Q5. What happens if you do not read books that teach life lessons? If you do not read, nothing will happen. You will remain the same while the world advances without you. Reading is one of the most important things you can do to exercise your mind and your discernment. Reading allows you to see both sides of a situation. A1. Do you have any recommendations?
