Why You Must Keep Reading Books

From the NYTimes Magazine this weekend.

“What we are losing in this country and presumably around the world is the sustained, focused, linear attention developed by reading. I would believe people who tell me that the Internet develops reading if I did not see such a universal decline in reading ability and reading comprehension on virtually all tests.” — Dana Gioia, chairman of the National Endowment for the Arts

“Reading a book, and taking the time to ruminate and make inferences and engage the imaginational processing, is more cognitively enriching, without doubt, than the short little bits that you might get if you’re into the 30-second digital mode.” — Ken Pugh, a cognitive neuroscientist at Yale

    Useful article. And just to be on-topic with the post, I don’t know for you girls but to me hair is the most iaroptmnt factor for my look. My hair stilist from the saloon where I go gave me around 2 months ago some type of hair oil which makes my hair grow faster and thicker. I don’t like to spam this blog so, who wants to find more details can click on my user name.Also sorry for my poor english
