Keep Reading

Those who read books benefit from what they learn and the entertainment they receive. But, in addition, they get to exercise their brain, and when we do that, we feel satisfied that we are spending our time wisely.
—David Niven, Ph.D. in Keep Reading: Number 94 of The 100 Simple Secrets of Happy People

Reading engages the mind. Reading materials, by exercising our memory and imagination, can contribute to happiness in ways similar to active positive thinking. Regular readers are about 8 percent more likely to express daily satisfaction.
—Scope E. 1999. "A Meta-Analysis of Research on Creativity." Ph.D. diss., Fordham University, New York, NY.
