Has anyone experienced an increase in their quality of life from reading more often? I have. I found that it was both the content read and the habits reading produced in me had a positive effect. The habits I received were things like thinking more often, more clearly, and more deeply; exploring things with more curiousity; thinking of the larger picture rather than just what was right in front of me. I'm sure there are others as well, but I'd like to hear what all of you have to say about reading and how it may have improved your life.
