This month, I came across a fun info graphic from Visually featuring 24 books that the average adult can read in less than an hour.
Normally, when I pick up a book, I look for one that will take more than an hour. I like to sit on our Very Large Red Reading Couch and put my feet up for a while. But my husband reads differently. He reads in fits and starts, snatches of time stolen from elevator rides, bus rides, and in the back of cabs.
Smart man. According to Visually, reading for even 6 minutes can reduce stress by 68%. Compare that to video games, which reduce stress by a paltry 21% over the same time. Those snatched moments of reading are also boosting my husband’s sense of self-worth and giving his imagination a much-needed midday boost.
Hmmm, maybe I should let Reading Break Out in Short Bursts more often.
