Regular reading doesn’t just help with your critical thinking, but it also improves your brain function. Consider what happens when you work a muscle every day. That muscle grows and becomes much stronger than before. Reading books works much the same way for your mind. Consider how many people today are affected with diseases of the mind. Working your brain will make you less likely to get such diseases. Reading doesn’t just help with your critical thinking, but it also improves your brain function.
“Reading a book, and taking the time to ruminate and make inferences and engage the imaginational processing, is more cognitively enriching, without a doubt, than the short little bits that you might get if you’re into the 30-second digital mode.”
– Ken Pugh (President of Haskins Laboratories)
