I read a lot because 1) I love reading, 2) it keeps my mind sharp, and 3) it consumes vast amounts of time.

I am currently reading perhaps the most mind-bending non-fiction book I have ever encountered and I would like to ask anyone who has already read it what you think of it. It is called "Sapiens, A Brief History of Humankind," by the Israeli-born, Oxford-educated historian Yuval Noah Harari.

Only seven chapters in, it has already rocked my worldview off its axis, and I am quite certain I will have to read it at least one more time to give it the reflection is so obviously deserves. What say you, retirees?

Reading is wonderful
by: Liz/Florida

I totally agree with reading as a wonderful way to spend time. Whether it's fiction or non-fiction, it allows you to become absorbed into another world. It's definitely a stress reliever, and certainly can be very educational.

Reading is a wonderful activity. It is fun, it is educational, it keeps your mind sharp and it gives you insight into different worlds. It is a good past-time when you are stuck in the house.

You may not be able to physically anywhere, but reading makes you feel as if you are there.

Keep on reading!
