As we continue to celebrate National Reading Month in March, it’s a good time to underscore the mental and physical benefits of reading at any age – and try out some new strategies to make you a better reader!
When we dropped in at New Order Coffee Roasters in Detroit, we found plenty of readers.
We started polling them about which books they liked to read more – fiction or non-fiction?
“I would say fiction more,” said manager Nathan Glitman who always carries a book in his backpack.
“Non-fiction all the way,” Carlene Fowlkes declared with a smile.
“Mostly fiction, science fiction fantasy,” said Mike Smith – though he admits his 2-year-old often distracts him from his reading endeavors.
Over at the Detroit Public Library’ s Duffield Branch, we found some die-hard book clubbers.
“I belong to 3 different book clubs,” Mary Lucas explained.
Her friend Veda Sherman – who’s in one of her book clubs — said, “[Reading] takes me into another world.”
And the more you read, the better!
