7 Unconventional Reasons Why You Absolutely Should Be Reading Books

You seriously have to read this article.  As an avid reader (who thinks everyone should be reading) this is the article from the Huffington Post you must read.  I don't need convincing, and you probably don't either if you are reading my blog, but let's face it.  We all know someone who should be reading more, right?  haha

Here is the link to the article online: 7 Unconventional Reasons Why You Absolutely Should Be Reading Books

And here are the 7 reasons in a nutshell:

1.  Reading can chill you out
2.  It can help keep your brain sharp
3.  And it might even stave off Alzheimer's disease
4.  Might help strengthen your mind reading abilities
5.  Reading may help you sleep better
6.  Getting lost in a good book could also make you more empathetic
7.  Self-help books can ease depression

    1. Good luck with your studies, Alex! Hopefully you can read a "fun" book or two along with those educational books. :)
