Reading Can Improve Your Brain

Have you ever had a teacher tell you to practice your reading as it can assist your vocabulary, your writing, use of language and lots more? Ever wondered "is this true or is the teacher just pushing me to read?"

Latest research shows that not only does reading improve all kinds of areas of your life by improving your knowledge, but reading can actually improve your brain.

Take a look at the YouTube Video here.

After watching the video, we hope you will understand that reading is important but more than that, we need to take care of what we read and the kinds of books our children read. If our children will begin to imagine themselves as being the characters of a book, just as explained in the video, are the characters of the books your children read the ones you'd like to be role models for them? If not, take a little time and search for quality reading material.

What are your thoughts on the topic? We'd love to hear from you here, below in the comments section.

A Novel Idea for Book Covers

After a negative comment about the book cover of "Relationships" by R.A. Kahn, we put out a few blog posts and discussion on social networking groups to get feedback from others. Some really like the cover and some don't understand it. I suppose life is like that.

Then we discovered the above image. Each book is wrapped in brown paper with string and has a sentence about the book. The idea is to get people interested in the content and not to judge the book by it's cover. 

What a novel idea. Now there's food for thought.

What do you think of it? When you discover a new book, how much does the cover impact on your enjoyment of the story or book itself?
