While we’re on the topic of going to the gym, reading books is equivalent to lifting mental weights. If you want to be able to think logically, improve your creativity, and make connections between unknown variables, reading is the tool for the job.
Vera Nazarian, an Armenian-American fiction author, sums it up perfectly:
“Whenever you read a good book, somewhere in the world a door opens to allow in more light.”
By engaging with intricate and detailed texts, we expand the limits of our current way of thinking and strengthen our mental prowess. If readers want to grow their understanding of the world around them, they only need to reach out and grab a book!
