Reading Literary Fiction Proven To Be Good For Us!!!

Hallelujah!  Finally, a study that proves what I’ve known ALL ALONG and have tried to convince others of: reading literary fiction, the type of fiction we Literary Masters members read each and every season, is GOOD FOR US!  It makes us more empathetic and understanding of others; it strengthens our emotional intelligence.  If you ever, ever, ever have had any pang of guilt while reading our monthly selection, if you ever have thought, “Oh, I shouldn’t be reading; I should be doing something more useful,” well, think again!  Clearly, reading literary fiction will make you a better person, which will lead to a better society all around.

To find out more about how reading literary fiction is the solution to all the world’s problems (OK, maybe I’m getting slightly carried away here, but still…) click here to read the fascinating article from The New York Times.

Then go sit down and read a great novel!
