••• BOOKWORMS LIVE
LONGER The more books your bury your nose into, the longer you live, a new study suggests. A team of experts from Yale University School of Public Health found a link between reading more books and increased longevity.
Researchers examined data that involved 3,635 people who participated in a large health study and answered several questions about reading. The study found that book readers who spend time up to 3.5 hours a week engrossed in a book were 17 percent less likely to die over the 12year follow-up period, while those who read more than the three-hour mark were 23 percent less likely to die.
While the report did not distinguish the difference between reading physical book copies and using digital copies on Kindle, it did find that those who read books in general lived an average of two years longer than those who don’t.
