Your brain and reading


NPR piece about brain studies and reading. Deep reading engages more areas of the brain. See full piece here.


I heard and enjoyed that piece on NPR this morning.

As much as we enjoy using computers and mobile devices, I think we have to really devote our attention to spending at least some quality time reading paper books.

Electronics are so easy, so convenient and so distracting, it takes a genuine commitment to stick with books, the kind of commitment that enriches our minds in the long haul.
