“Reading gives us some place to go when we have to stay where we are” - Mason Cooley

Research shows that regular reading:
improves brain connectivity.
increases your vocabulary and comprehension.
empowers you to empathize with other people.
aids in sleep readiness.
reduces stress.
lowers blood pressure and heart rate.
fights depression symptoms.
prevents cognitive decline as you age.












Find out why Nanase Nishino, Nana Komatsu, Mugi Kadowaki, Haruka Kudo,
Mayu Watanabe, Maria Makino, Mizuki Fukumura, Minami Hoshino, and
Mana Ashida all love reading!

1. Make a post, preferably stating a goal of how many books you want to read this year.
2. Edit that post as you read throughout the year, slowly adding to the list of books you've read. Sorting the list by month is recommended.
3. Don't create additional posts, just keep editing your original post. Graphic novels count as .25 (in other words, 4 graphic novels = one book)
