Hey people!

I wonder what is it that is different in people who are regular book readers as compared to non-readers; more specifically, people who read FICTION .

Studies have found regular readers to be more empathetic and more Emotionally-intelligent....What other characteristics do you think are influenced in people who read books regularly?

They see a 500 page book and think of how long it will take to finish as opposed to how much they will enjoy the story within. Reading was more common in the past because it was largely the only form of entertainment they had.
