Reading is known to reduce stress, increase vocabulary, and expand our minds to new ideas. Making time to read is difficult. But I encourage you to spend some part of your day/week/year opening at least one book to send yourself into another world. Shut the door to reality and enjoy a positive, relaxing reading experience.

Here are 10 options to get you started. Enjoy!
