The Benefits of Reading

I came across the article “10 Benefits of Reading: Why You Should Read Every Day” recently and thought that the reasons were worth sharing. So why should you read every day?:

  1. Mental stimulation
  2. Stres reduction
  3. Knowledge
  4. Vocabulary expansion
  5. Memory improvement
  6. Stronger analytical thinking skills
  7. Improved focus and concentration
  8. Better writing skills
  9. Tranquility
  10. Free entertainment

Overall I think that the reasons listed are very positive side affects of reading. I might question the “Free entertainment” bulled as most books will come at a cost. If you are looking for low cost/free reading alternatives check out the “Notification services with free/low cost book offers” on my Books and Reading page.
