Four Reasons Why You Should Read More

how books help us

Reading books is an important part of our lives, and not only do they make us better people, they can even be the source of escape. Here are four reasons why you should read more.

Ex Libris by Anne Fadiman

Ex Libris is a collection of essays written by Anne Fadiman. The book is a mix of memoir, humor, and history. As a writer and editor, Fadiman has been a prolific contributor to books such as The New York Times, Harper’s, and The American Scholar. In addition, she has been married to author George Howe Colt.

The book is a good read for both novice and seasoned bibliophiles alike. The book covers a lot of ground, from the allure of long words to the perverse pleasures of proof reading. It also demonstrates that you can’t judge a book by its cover.

The book’s best entries include the first essay in the collection, which is a brief, albeit long, essay about the benefits of a well-stocked library. The essay was originally published under the general heading of “The Common Reader” in Civilization magazine of the Library of Congress.

‘Words on a Flyleaf’ by Ann Morgan

If you’re into reading books, you may have heard of Words on a Flyleaf by Ann Morgan. She read four to five books a week for a year and got a big kahuna for her efforts. It’s a hefty commitment, but the rewards are well worth it. The perks include an office suite, a posh penthouse apartment, and a new car every two years. And that’s before she even starts on the list of things she’s gotta do next! She’s also a big time social butterfly, and she’s been known to have a few drinks and a few snafus. She’s also a fan of all things vintage. So she’s been reading and collecting vintage books and art for as long as she can remember. The resulting swag has lasted her a decade or more.

Reading improves social skills

If you’re a parent, you may be wondering how reading improves social skills. Studies have shown that people who read have a better understanding of others and how to resolve conflicts. They also have greater emotional intelligence. In fact, a study conducted by the University of Liverpool found that regular readers showed a higher degree of coping with difficult situations.

Another study found that people who read fiction, such as novels and short stories, had more empathy for other people. They were better able to determine the intentions of other characters and understand how they would respond in a given situation.

During the reading process, it is important to have full attention. If you’re distracted, you might not hear what your partner is saying. A good conversationalist will always give your partner their full attention and wait for them to finish before adding anything.

It’s an escape

Books can be a great source of entertainment, but they also provide a great opportunity to learn and expand your horizons. In fact, books are an escape from reality, whether it is to a fictional world or to another reality altogether.

Reading a book can also be a useful coping mechanism. Studies have shown that reading can help improve your focus, concentration and memory. In addition, you can learn a lot from reading about other people and cultures. Read on to discover how to take advantage of this coping mechanism in your life.

Interestingly enough, books are often a sign of a good parent. However, it can be hard to control your child’s love of books. If you are worried about your child’s attention span, you may want to consider limiting their reading time.

It’s an adventure

Adventure novels are a genre of literature that focuses on the actions and journeys of a protagonist. In this type of fiction, the hero travels to a faraway place to complete a quest. The character must overcome insecurities and difficulties in order to reach the desired goal. Generally, this type of novel features an ensemble of characters, but sometimes, one character acts as the hero.

Traditionally, the adventure genre has been dominated by male writers. However, there are increasing numbers of female authors writing in this genre. For example, George R. R. Martin wrote a short novelette called Baldur before he penned his bestselling A Song of Ice and Fire.

When writing an adventure book, the author must create an engrossing and exciting story. The pace should be fast, but the characters should be able to slow down and have flashbacks. The novel should also feature action scenes and a climax that ends with all the action being brought to a close.
