Today, there are many clubs for some readers, for every who loves books or wants to read books. But have you ever asked somebody that why we need to read books? Before answer this question, why don t you find out what are the benefits of reading books. Let s check it out. First, reading books helps you to widen your general knowledge. Nowadays, the world is changing every single day, every single night and turns around on a time wheel. All things you learn at school are all enough?

Knowledge is unlimited and you are standing between the world of education. Reading books also helps us to remember clearly about the situation or the unit you have learned at school. For example, in biology, at school, we learned about animals s habits and when read books, you can understand more about animals world, or in chemistry, you can understand clearly about chemicals or atomic. In the other side, the world has a lot of books, maybe a thousand or a billion. So we can choose books with different topics for reading. Some people like romantic books.

Most of us have been reading since we were very young, but how many of us really think about the БwhyБ behind the words? What makes a novel compelling, or a memoir so riveting? Why do some readers lose themselves in fantasy and sci-fi while others swear by non-fiction instead? According to Sara Nelson, editor in chief of Publishers Weekly, БWhy people read what they read is a great unknown and personal thing.
Б But while the reasons for reading canБt exactly be dissected, the science behind why readers read – and what happens to our brains when we read – is profoundly interesting. I read, therefore I am stimulated. Sometimes lifelong readers read simply because reading makes them feel good, or because itБs familiar. Many famous novelists confess to being steered towards books by a single transformative reading experience during adolescence. Junot Diaz, author of Pulitzer Prize-winning \”The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao,\”б with his family after emigrating from the Dominican Republic to New Jersey. Sherman Alexie, who won the National Book Award for БThe Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian,\” attributes his romance with reading to \”The Snowy Day,\” a childrenБs picture book that featured a БbrownБ character like himself. Most readers would be able to relate to those stories, but the missing plot component behind each of them is the Бwhy. Б Does a lifelong love of reading really just come down to firing endorphins? Not quite. This is where science comes into play. Your brain on books The human brain is very creative, and we naturally tend to visualize whatever we think about. While the average reader is no Einstein (who famously that led to all of his breakthroughs), the act of reading naturally triggers complex visualizations.
In other words, getting lost in a great book is a highly immersive experience that makes our brains come alive. In fact, at least neurologically-speaking. The same regions of the brain stimulated by the real thing are also stimulated by words. So, while a literary fiction reader may have a harder time suspending disbelief compared to a J. R. R. Tolkien apologist, both readers are having vicarious experiences. Nonfiction readers are just as susceptible: a good memoir or guidebook allows readers to retrace the experiences of the writer in the same way fiction does. Story structure itself also plays a role in why we start reading and keep reading throughout adult life. A story with a beginning, middle, and end is food for the brain because it. Neuroscientists actually encourage parents to read to their children because it extends attention spans while the brain is growing. Which begs the question: does the brain react in the same way to other story mediums the same way it does to text? Not quite. Believe it or not, reading has a unique power. How reading is different from listening or watching According to one Carnegie Mellon study,. Participants underwent a six-month reading program and were actually able to increased white matter in the language area of the brain, which could lower the risk of mild cognitive impairment (MCI) associated with AlzheimerБs disease.
Critical literary reading can even in complex cognitive functions. In other words, reading can benefit non-readers, too. People who prefer to get their story fix via television or video game narratives can be trained to become better readers, which will help them maintain cognitive ability and increase attention spans over time. As psychologists from Washington University in St. Louis discovered, Бreaders mentally simulate each new situation encountered in a narrative. Б By doing so, they become Бmore alert to the inner lives of others. Б This would certainly explain why many introverts also happen to be bookworms. Reading not only tickles their fancies in the right way – it also helps them develop sympathetic social skills apart from high-stress social environments. Reading between the lines As it turns out, there are plenty of good reasons to read and keep reading. In an age of increasing technological distractions, readers, writers, and publishers alike can find solace in the fact that what they do helps us all stay grounded. It certainly doesnБt hurt that reading makes us smarter, too. A lifelong love of reading may very well be one of the best habits (or addictions) youБll ever have.
