Reading Stats

Here's a flyer based on 2011 reading stats:

Currently when I am waiting, I read The Riders for pleasure and a taste of elegant writing. I am also slowly reading through an old art history book on the Baroque era for personal art research. Yesterday I started reading a software book to expand my computer skills.

You don't need a purpose to read though. Reading can be just to fill time. I read some of the software book during a meal and while waiting for the computer to load. You can read for a purpose, pleasure, or a sense of accomplishment.

BuzzFeed collected 12 scientific benefits to reading: 

  1. Reading can help prevent Alzheimer's
  2. Reading is a source of new information. Learning and retaining information will help your mind remember as you age.
  3. Reading leads to a more involved and cultured life.
  4. Reading is a stress-reliever. 6 minutes of reading can reduce your stress by 68%.
  5. Reading can give you insight on your own experiences.
  6. Reading enhances your memory by exercising it.
  7. Women are attracted to intelligence.
  8. Reading helps you recognize patterns and improve your analytic thinking.
  9. Reading adds to your vocabulary, which makes you look good for interviews and promotions.
