Yup, Reading Makes Us Happy

Share

Happy #InternationalDayOfHappiness

Yes, that's a real thing. This March 20, we couldn't resist asking the bookworms of Twitter about the stories that bring them happiness. After all, everyone knows that reading improves your health, sharpens your mind, helps you embrace ambiguity, and makes you more empathetic—but let's not forget that most of us just do it because we love it. Do you have a book that makes you happy? Let us know in the comments!
