5 Things Readers Have Going for Them

1   Readers have better vocabularies and memory
Never get in an argument with a Reader. They know more words and aren't afraid to use them! Also, because reading has been shown to improve memory, they may never let you forget you they were right. 

2   Readers have all the answers.

Reading enhances brain function and increases knowledge, Need to know something? Ask a     Reader!

3    Readers are relaxed.

Even a hot romance can help you totally chill out. Reading allows you to shift your thinking, to put aside your troubles while you visit other people and places. Reading lets you engage your imagination and get in touch with your emotions, all stress reducers.

4   Readers Are Well Balanced

Not because they can walk with a book on their heads! Well, many of them can, especially the ones who have read books on good posture but reading, especially fiction, helps you become a more empathetic person. Seeing the world through the eyes of characters in books helps you understand and relate to others. Reading nonfiction has been linked to higher involvement in social issues.

5  Readers Are Passionate

If you don't believe me, try telling them that reading is a waste of time! 

Reading fiction lights up the same parts of your brain as doing the things you are reading about so grab a good book and become a Reader, you won't regret it.

We'd love to know, what are YOU reading?
