Beyond knowledge, entertainment and a great escape from the demands of the day, books have a number of benefits that can make life better, including their power to heal, inform and inspire. They can reduce stress, prepare you for a good night of sleep, and prevent cognitive decline. They can take you to places you’ve never been or sneak a peek into the lives of people you’ve never met. They can also inspire you to reach for stars that once seemed out of reach.
