5 Reasons You Should Read Books & A Deal You Don't Want to Miss!!

**Disclosure: I have included affiliate links in this post. Read the fine print about this bundle and read the answers to frequently asked questions about the bundle.**




I love to read. 

I remember when I was in the 5th grade I had a Locker Library in my locker, it had 5-6 of my favorite books and I told my friends that they could sign them out whenever they wanted.
Haha  I don't know think anyone took me up on my offer but, that is how much I love to read.

Even now years later, I always have 1-3 books going at one point in time. Usually its a mix of Classic Novels, Christian Nonfiction being self help, marriage, parenting, Apologetics books and Christian Fiction. Sometimes I will throw in a sci-fi book for kicks.

So for fun I thought I would give you my top 5 reasons why it is important to continue to read well into adulthood.



5 Reasons Why You Should Read Books
**Deep Reading, Not Web Browsing. 
(It was hard to narrow it down to just 5  I have to say!)


1. Expands your vocabulary. In today's age of TTYL, IDK, LOL, other abbreviations and hashtags our vocabulary as a society seems to be limited. Whats the cure? Reading! You can't learn new words unless you read, and once you start reading you will actually expand your vocabulary which helps in any situation!

2. Reading regularly shows our kids that reading is important. It is so important to read to our kids daily, but what is just as important is reading in front of our kids. Often times our children want to mimic what we do and follow suit. I know with my son when I pick up my book K runs over and sits with a book as well.

3. Reading Is Fun! I don't know about you, but for me, I can get completely lost in a book. My minds imagination just goes crazy with ideas of what the characters look like, the setting and scenes. It really is a wonderful way for me to just shut the world out even for just a little while, and escape to a whole different world. This often leads me to question different things about history and authors that is fun to know.

4. Great way to wind down and relax before bed. Instead of falling asleep to the TV on which has been proven to actually confuse your brain into thinking you are up for the day- causing insomnia. Reading on the other hand has a calming effect on your brain helping you sleep better.

5. Prevents Alzheimer's and Dementia. Research from the National Academy of Sciences suggest that people who read regularly or play mentally challenging games are less likely to have these illnesses. It affects 4 million Americans, so read to decrease your chances!



Now that you know why you should read, the question is what should you read??

    1. Crazy right Neyssa! I feel like when I choose to watch TV instead of read I can definitely feel it. Especially my eyes, I can't look at a screen for too long but I can read for hours!

  5. I love reading too as a former librarian. My house is full of books now so having an electronic bundle of great books would be awesome. thanks for sharing.

    1. For all of those books if you were to buy the physical books you would need a new book shelf but with the bundle it is all in the palm of your hands! So great!

      Delete
  6. Love your reasons! I like to watch things as I go to sleep but I know the bright light of the screen does NOT help tell my body that it is time to sleep. Reading a book would be much better and it is something I always feel like I don't have time for. Problem solved!

    1. So glad I could help! haha. When my husbands home at night I go to bed after watching our shows together, but when he's not it is part of my routine to read a book!

  7. Like you, I like to have up to three books, of which are usually a mix of self-help, spiritual, and non-fiction. Reading is vital for all of the points you make in this post. Thank you for validating how important it is!

  8. Ok, so I'm a librarian, so how can I not LOVE this post? And you were probably every teacher's dream with the lending library in your locker. Keep on reading ... you are absolutely right about it helping you grow and change through adulthood. :-)

  9. I really fell out of reading regularly during college, but have recently begun to pick it back up again. I love a good book!

    1. I definitely understand you there, I didn't read many books for pleasure in college because of all of the studying and reading I had to do for class which didn't leave me much time for anything else. I didn't start reading heavily again until about a year ago.

      Delete
  10. I really do think reading is really good I just wish I took the time to do it more often!

    1. It definitely takes planning, and being ok with going slow sometimes - at least for me with my very active 2 year old, sometimes I only get to read 10-15 minutes a day, but even that is better than nothing!

      Delete
  11. It really looks like a great deal , I should look in to that !

  12. Thanks for this! I need to read more but I end up reading more blogs lately.

    1. I definitely get caught up in all of the new blogs I am finding! I am trying to find a balance myself.

  13. Never heard of this before - the bundle! It's full of great titles - something to consider for the holidays for sure. I'd much rather have my kiddos seeing me read a book rather than 'reading' a computer, or other device too.

    1. It is an amazing Christmas gift to yourself or your family or friends because it really has something for everyone plus a TON of stuff for such a little price. It is only available until the 10th though and then it will be gone until next year with all new books!

  14. HI Tara Joy, I absolutely LOVE books too, and like you, I have several going at one time. I also have shelves and shelves of books PLUS a kindle too! I am now trying to give my books away one by one to people who can benefit. Thanks for this post. Go gently, Amy

  15. Great post! Looks like there are lots of amazing books here : )

  16. My biggest problem is that I actually don't like reading ebooks - if this was a print bundle it would be a no-brainer. ;)

  17. I love reading when I can find the time! The time is so scarce lately, that reading seems like an extra special treat! I actually like real books....with paper and binding. I like how they feel and smell....I like carrying them with me. I'm weird, I know. But.....tech savvy as I am, I just can't get on the ereader train just yet! Thanks for sharing this post!

    1. Oh I definitely understand! You are not weird I am the same way I LOVE print books and check them out from the library on a weekly basis, but when a great deal comes along I jump on it! haha I don't know I am all about saving money where I can!
