••• 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.

Ques­tions may be phoned in Mon­day through Thurs­day, 9 a.m. to 8 p.m., Fri­day and Satur­day 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., or Sun­day 1 to 4 p.m. Call 410745-0980 or 410-643-8161.
