If you are getting headaches from reading, go and have your eyes tested and try to read in better light. More natural is possible. People read as a form of catching up on the news of family, friends and the world news. It can also be an escape from the 'real world' for a wile. Reading also expands our knowledge and can keep our minds sharp, reducing the risk of dementia and other memory loss diseases in later life. If you can't read a book, like a novel, get a poetry book and see how you go with that. It is easy to put down after a few poems. There are many different types of poems these days, and most tell a story in themselves. There are also books on the net called e-books, and some of these are free to download.

I do it when I'm on a train or bus and there's nothing else to do. I figure I might as well increase my knowledge about something. Any knowledge is probably better than no knowledge. I agree though, that books require a lot more energy and effort than reading short magazine articles or watchting TV shows and movies.
