How Reading Changes Your Brain

Recommended Posts

Interesting article, right now I could use a book where the character is enjoying being in a hot sunny country so that maybe I could 'get into the character' -.I'm really cold! :scratchhe

We are cold too, Momac but probably not as cold as you

I can probably get some cold prizes...  Our heating broke down two weeks ago (green technology is wonderful when it works but the fundamental problem with heat pumps is that they stop operating efficiently when the temperature goes below 2°, which it does a lot in Europe, and frequently seizes up when it goes below freezing, which it also does a lot!) We're currently waiting for a spare part, 10 more days, and I though the kitchen felt really nice when I got up because it was all of 15° (two days ago it was 13).

Well...

I've read a lot. Not much quality, quite a quantity.

But I'm not convinced I'm a better person... and I know I'm not a more positive person.

I think that reading helps your imagination, helps the way you express yourself, you learn new words and also they might improve your writing as well. However, I am wondering what are the positives from listening to audiobooks, what do you think?

Maybe a bit better weather today Luna, temp to go up above zero.

 

Poison I, have never listened to an audiobook but I agree that books do help with your imagination. It would be an added help if you are listening to someone with a really expressive voice I would think. :hmm:

Yeah, I agree. However, I am not sure whether it is as helpful as the actual reading. I mean, it kind of steals the magic from the whole process. It might be easier for people who enjoy listening to audiobooks while doing other activities, but I don't know. I guess I have to try it for myself and see.

If you are paritally sighted/blind then you have no option.  I still think that you can imagine what's happening if someone is reading to you.  I had no problem with that as a child when being read to.
