Reading to Become Immortal

WHAT?!

A new study published recently in the journal Social Science and Medicine concluded that reading more books can lead to immortality! *opens a book to start reading*

Okay. Maybe I’m exaggerating. BUT over a 12 year study of people over 50-years-old those who read more than 3 1/2 hours each week were less likely to die during the span. The study concluded that reading books could potentially add two years to your lifespan. And that’s only in people who were over 50 to begin with, imagine how many years are added if you start young! Oh boy.

So much for that so many books, so little time nonsense. Keep reading and you’ll have more time!

How many years do you think will be added to your lifetime?
