Why Reading Fiction Is Not a Waste of Time

As investing in ourselves becomes mainstream, reading self-help or self-improvement literature is riding the same wave. We also make time for specialist literature to develop professionally, but we don’t binge read fiction as we’d watch some Netflix series.

All art forms have evolved, including film and including writing. Reading fiction allows you to co-create the universe and the characters with the author. We get to make our own associations between written word and imagery. We grow a different part of our brain while learning so much about people from people who’ve studied us.

Head to the library and indulge into a book that ‘reads’ appealing. Sense it. It’s the beginning of a new adventure.
