Okay, I love this news. Well, it’s not really new news for us readers, is it? Haven’t we always known that people who read are more intelligent? I mean, it’s obvious right? Well, it is news to me that fiction stimulates the brain in ways that non-fiction, or fact base information cannot. This short video by Discovery News is an interesting and short watch. Makes you want to pick up a novel, too! Feel free to check out my book reviews (shameless plug) for 2013 and 2014! I love to hear what books have made you happy too! Please comment and leave a recommendation or three. Enjoy and share!

And just because I think that readers are super intelligent and extra smart, I’m sharing my favorite poem performed by the super cute poet himself. I don’t care how many times I watch this, I love it every, single, TIME! Thanks Mark Grist! You are adorable!
