Why Reading Books Should be Your Priority, According to Science

By Christina DesMarais 

Another good (and short) article on the benefits of reading books. Here are the links. A summary follows.

More than a quarter--26 percent--of American adults admit to not having read even part of a book within the last year. That's according to statistics coming out of the Pew Research Center. If you're part of this group, know that science supports the idea that reading is good for you on several levels.

  • Reading fiction can help you be more open-minded and creative.
  • People who read books live longer.
  • Reading 50 books a year is something you can actually accomplish.
  • Successful people are readers.
