The power of reading helps to develop inference and deduction and comprehension skills. It improves your knowledge of the world and empowers you with more awareness. It can open minds to different ideas which may challenge our own and cause us to view things in a different light. It can improve brain and memory function and allow you to become more aware of common harms that impact you and the world around you. Reading also enhances connectivity in the brain, reduces stress and promotes relaxation. As Margaret Fuller said: ” Today a reader, tomorrow a leader”.
