10 Reasons why


3. Because you learn something you didn’t know before that could potentially change your life

4.Because you come to self realizations about yourself that you would have not been able to come to had they not been pointed out to you in the form of words.

7. Reading is an active mental process - Unlike TV, books make you to use your brain. By reading, you think more and become smarter

8. It is a fundamental skill builder - Every good course on the planet has a matching book to go with it. Why? Because books help clarify difficult subjects. Books provide information that goes deeper than just classroom discussion.

9.Merely reading a word reflecting a color or a scent immediately fires up the corresponding section of the brain, which empathizes with written experiences as if they actually happened to the audience. Researchers believe this might very well help sharpen the social acumen needed to forge valuable relationships with others.

10.In correlation with the previous perk, sensual stimulation makes it easier for aging brains to keep absorbing and processing new information over time. This occurs when the occipital-temporal cortex essentially overrides its own programming and adapts to better accommodate written language.
