Reading is tantamount to taking a mental holiday. On cold winter days books can take us away on adventures, to warm beaches, to a better understanding of ourselves and our lives. They can link us to memories of the past and lead us to new beginnings. Reading is a great stress reducer, unfortunately 23% of Americans did not read a single book in 2013. Researchers have found that reading can be a wonderful source of stress release.
