One of the best ways to relax the brain and destress is through reading a book, says the latest study made by a famous American university. This new evidence shows us how important it is to read frequently and all of the benefits reading can have on the brain beyond stress relief. Reading is the best benefit the brain can get from reading books. By reading books, the brain increases the vocabulary, increases the speed of receiving information, the process of information processing is significantly accelerated, and the thought that the brain prepares us to perform is clear and understandable. In short, the brain works as it is meant to, if not better when reading is incorporated into a daily or weekly routine.
To put reading into even more of a tangible perspective, we can think of reading as a form of brain food. If sleep is food for the brain, then regular reading can be said to be the way the brain drinks water. We say this because it is well known in science that the brain is like a sponge that absorbs and stores everything it hears, reads, or sees. That is why it is important to choose a book that we consider to be the right choice of “water” that we want to give to the brain. Choose the right genre, then seek advice from a close friend with the same or similar taste as yours, and if that is not satisfactory, search for the most popular titles on the Internet!
The internet is an unlimited space full of sources of inspiration for finding your next book, but it is also a source of books and literary works that you can buy or rent electronically. Always make sure you buy or rent a new book that has an interesting title and an attractive topic. This way, you’ll be engaged in your book and feel more eager to continue reading. And of course, do not forget to check that the book you choose has already passed through the hands of criticizers. Their opinion is important and is often in the direction of suggestion or warning. They are people who have a lot of experience behind them evaluating the quality of the books which can help guide you to the right book to meet your personal preferences.
According to this study, the most realistic and best criticism is given by the criticizers of the famous daily newspaper The New York Times. In the evaluation process for a book to make it on the New York Times Best Seller list, they take into account many features that the book has or doesn’t have. According to them, the label for the most read books and best-selling books for 2023 bears the following titles:
