Good Morning!! ❤Yesterday World Book Day was celebrated across the globe to recognise and promote the benefit of reading books. As a lifelong book lover and recently published author, I can't say enough about the impact books can have in one's life. From gaining new perspectives and learning about the world, to comfort, escapism, and pure enjoyment, books have so many benefits!Here are some facts:- Children who regularly read for enjoyment have higher test scores, develop a broader vocabulary, increased general knowledge and a better understanding of other cultures than their non-reading counterparts.- Studies show reading for pleasure can reduce stress and improve memory and brain function. Fiction helps readers step into another person’s shoes and makes us more empathetic. Reading also increases attention span and can help you live longer.What better time than during a pandemic to dive into a good book?Pic #1 is me at age 8 reading to my baby brother.Pic #2 are recent additions to my book collection. I'm trying something new - texts that were originally written around 2000 years ago.Pic #3 are some of the books on my shelf that have contributed to shaping my life and perspectives. They helped lead to the publication of the book on top, Good Morning, Life! 🙂🙏❤ 📚📖What books have been most impactful in your life?
