So many books, so little time! Whether you like to hold these works of art in your hands or read carefully crafted words on an electronic reader, book lovers are in a race against time. We carve out minutes and hours during our busy days to immerse ourselves in gifted authors’ storytelling.

Book Authors’ Insights

Some of us enjoy reading a book because it takes us away from our own lives. Others value this pastime for the following reasons:

  • To revel in the artistry of lyrical writing
  • To immerse ourselves in an extended and layered tale
  • To understand how others deal with life’s challenges

Food for the Soul and Imagination

Beyond these points, a good book offers fundamental nourishment for our spirits. These stories have the ability to:

  • Help us feel connected to others who have experienced similar circumstances
  • Offer a way to dream about other places or choices we would like to explore
  • Provide a way to feel refreshed after a relaxing getaway in the comfort of our own home!

Here are some other important reasons to read.
