Okay, it’s not just my books that will make you healthier.  According to Mindlab International at the University of Sussex, reading reduces stress by a whopping 68 percent.  Here’s an excerpt from the Marie Claire article:

Psychologists believe this is because the human mind has to concentrate on reading and the distraction of being taken into a literary world eases the tensions in muscles and the heart.

Now, I suppose reading something like a ransom or suicide note won’t reduce your stress, but spending some time reading the Oz Chronicles could help you live longer.  Don’t argue with science!
