The studies show that people who regularly read fiction actually empathize better than nonreaders. We all want empathic friends and we certainly want to be empathetic ourselves so come on the books!

Another advantage of reading books is that readers often know great cozy places to find serenity. From local libraries to park benches, even the best coffee shops… they know where to go.
