“A reader lives a thousand lives before he dies, said Jojen. The man who never reads lives only one.”
― George R.R. Martin, A Dance with Dragons
September isn’t just back to school or the beginning of pumpkin spice – it’s also Read a New Book Month! So, whether picking up that novel you’ve been meaning to finish, taking some time to catch up with the daily newspaper, or diving into that technical manual to finish a project, dedicate some time this month to reek the many benefits of reading.
Reading has many important health benefits, including reduced stress levels, alleviating anxiety and depression, boosts happiness, and help you fall asleep at night! Just 60 minutes of reading per day is all you need to dramatically change your life.
Need some fun, creative ways to fit reading into everyday life? Make reading a habit throughout the year by listening to audio books on your commute to work, re-stocking your bookshelf with a mix of classics and must reads (check out Amazon’s 100 Books to Read in a Lifetime), or establishing a book club with friends or colleagues! Don’t let Read A New Book Month go by without discovering a new author!
