Does being selective in reading deprive us from the effective knowledge?People have different reading habits. Whether it is book reading or online reading while surfing everyone finds things of ones taste and goes through them. The ocean of knowledge is very large and all sort of information and data is available there. Sill, we are confined to our taste and selective approach. For example, a person interested only in world of movies and TV shows will read a lot about these subjects and will in a long run acquire a lot of information in the field but he will be deprived of so many other things and other knowledge.
On the other hand many people try to cover various fields and areas and gain significant knowledge pieces in the process and become knowledgeable to some good extent. What in your opinion should be our approach - to remain confined to a few areas of entertainment and leisure type of knowledge or increase our span of reading to other areas like history, politics, sociology, science, computers and so many other interesting fields. Will it be strenuous to go for so much varied acquisitions? What do you think about this?
