“A reader lives a thousand lives before he dies. The man who never reads lives only one.”
― George R.R. Martin
The “read more” concept is back in style.
The great minds have been pointing at books’ positive influence for a long time. And now, we cite their words and agree with that powerful impact books have on us.
A brave new world opens for those who read:
Reading makes us smarter and healthier. It influences the way we think and learn. And it makes us better writers, no matter what we write: essays or fiction.
Any proofs needed?

Billy Milligan was a man known in the 1970s for living with multiple personality disorder. He claimed to have 24 different people in his head. The world has found out about Billy in the 1980s, after the book by Daniel Keyes, The Minds of Billy Milligan, came out.

Famous writers attract enormous attention. Sometimes, their daily rituals, good writing habits, and customs seem weird, indeed. But anyway, fans try to copy out their behavior, wardrobe, and even appearance to become a step closer to the “stars.”
Their motivation is clear:
Some just want to have fun, while others do that to get the same results. Thus, Jack London was a big fan of Rudyard Kipling, so he rewrote (by hand, not a typewriter) Kipling’s books.
