Reading books allows your mind to drift, immersing yourself in a different realm. Because you’re not focusing on the present, it allows you to let go of the stress you’re feeling in your everyday life.
Regardless of the book you’re reading, you will always be learning something new. Books are the best way for you to absorb information and you never know when this information might come in handy.
Books are filled with an immense amount of vocabulary you probably never would’ve come across if you didn’t read. This allows you to expand your everyday vocabulary which can help you seem articulate to others.
Reading books is a great tool to help you improve your memory. Nonfiction books are filled with facts and information for you to retain. While fiction books are filled with an abundant amount of characters, plots, subplots, world building, magic systems, etc.
If you’re looking to immerse yourself into another world, you are required to give your full attention to the book. This allows you to practice concentrating on one thing for an extended period of time.
