Time for Thorns

An independent view on life.

Read books, live longer…

It wasn’t a very large sample,  but  this recent study  showed that readers lived two years longer than non-readers,  and it appears that books made more of a difference than newspapers or periodicals.

Since I am a reader,  I certainly hope the research proves correct,  but I read for pleasure,  for information,  and for education,  so even if I don’t gain a longevity advantage,  I have already gained the advantages of having met those needs.
