3.None of us should need a reason to read. Reading wouldn’t be labeled with such importance if there weren’t obvious, universal benefits.

You are only limited by what you can imagine, and the worlds described in books, as well as other peoples views and opinions will help you expand your understanding of what is possible.

can expand your horizons by letting you see what other cities and countries have to offer

before you visit them.

9.Dr. Ken Pugh says that “parts of the brain that have evolved for other functions—such as vision, language, and associative learning—connect in a specific neural circuit for reading, which is very challenging”.

10.It’s a truism that kids’ books aren’t just for kids. Franchises like Harry Potter and The Hunger Games wouldn’t be nearly as successful if adults weren’t packing into theaters along with teens and tweens, and besides, the stigma against teen lit is so passé. http://flavorwire.com/434697/25-ya-novels-everyone-even-adults-should-read/
