Reading can transport us to the most adventurous, exciting of places. We can travel to far away countries, be inspired by true tales of touching, poignant or even triumphant lives or venture into magical worlds of fiction. Reading is play at its best. Reading can impact our lives profoundly, enabling us to view the world from a different perspective, perhaps even motivating us to change how we live our lives.
When we don’t read we rob ourselves of the opportunity to widen our worldview, expand our life experience, learn from those wiser than us and, critically, play. Whether you enjoy fiction or non-fiction we can all benefit from reading a good book.
