Today, September 6th, is National Read a Book Day. Take some time out of your busy day and relax with a good book! While the origins of this particular holiday are unknown, reading has many benefits. Not only will reading improve your vocabulary, memory and concentration, reading is an essential skill that also helps reduce stress. Reading is also a great way to “visit” other places, learn about other cultures and travel back in time. And reading is an affordable means of entertainment too. So instead of turning on the radio, watching television or firing up the computer, why not turn off all those electronic devices and open a book up! Not sure what to read? Select a book from the New York Times Best Sellers Listand be the first in your office to read it, Happy National Read a Book Day!
