VOInews, Jakarta : Despite having limitations, Indonesian Reading Ambassador Gol A Gong has not lost his enthusiasm and believes that by reading books, his mind will always be filled and focused on all the dreams he wants to achieve. Not something that can't be achieved.

This was conveyed by Gol A Gong as a prologue to starting a Literacy Talk with the Indonesian Reading Ambassador in Central Java, Wednesday (29/5/2024).

Chairman of the Semarang Regency Community Reading Park Forum (TBM), Tirta Nursari, admitted that some people think they are less interested in reading activities. Moreover, the convenience of digital technology has made all human activities easier.

"Here then the role of the smallest environment, namely the family, becomes important as the main capital in forming children's reading habits from an early age," said Nursari.

Tirta actually hopes that in the future literary works can be produced at a young age. This is in line with the family literacy program that he is intensively campaigning for.

Well, someone can produce works (books) if they read often. Because from there, he will have a large vocabulary. And that's the basic capital in writing.

"Logically, to be able to produce output (writing) you must also have a lot of input (reading)," explained SIP Publishing CEO Indra Gunawan.

According to a release received by Voice of Indonesia on Wednesday (29/05/24), the publishing CEO is working hard to encourage the people of Central Java to compete to write down their creative ideas and become eternal works.

"Because often people want to write but are hesitant because they don't know how," he explained.

In fact, the current conditions show a shift in habits. The habit of reading printed books is shifting to digital books or via other reading applications.

"The number of readers of comics and novels through book reading applications and websites in Indonesia is very high," concluded Indra//VOI
