Book Readers Live Longer

A new study says bookworms live 23 months longer than their non-reading counterparts. According to a new study, it may actually be one’s consumption of writing that acts as a fountain of youth. Yes, among its many other documented benefits, a new study has demonstrated that reading yields a greater lifespan.

Read about the study form Social Science & Medicine's September issue: "A Chapter a Day: Association of Book Reading with Longevity."

Readers live longer I am sure because we want to finish to book we are reading and know how it ends!
