Remember in grade school when it was required that you read books? Well nobody makes you read books as an adult because who cares. It's #NationalBookLoversDay and it got me thinking about the last time I actually sat down and read a book. Couldn't remember. Honestly it was probably a Captain Underpants book (if that counts) so I feel like it's probably about time to pick up a collection of papers with words written on them and read again. Scientists and smart people say that it's good for your brain to read. It keeps your mind creative, allows you time to decompress from looking at screens all day, and I'm sure it makes you a little smarter so that you don't say "um" every three words when speaking. All I'm saying is, if you can't remember the last time that you read a book (no twitter and facebook don't count) then it's probably time to pick one up and start reading. Send your brain to the gym every once in a while so it works properly.
