SRBC_social.pngWe’re only a couple of weeks away from summer and vacation time.  This always encourages me to start collecting books to read during this time away from work and normal routines.  Like many of you, reading is one of my favorite past times.  I guess there are many reasons why we should read more books so I went looking for some of the benefits of reading and found 10 reasons from WhytoRead.com:

Here are 10 Reasons Why You Should Read More Books:

1. To Develop Your Verbal Abilities

2. Improves Your Focus and Concentration

3. Readers Enjoy the Arts and Improve the World
