Personal development jumps forward when you increase your reading, not only do you need to read, but also apply the knowledge and insights you learn.  Research has shown that reading makes people more intellectually humble, increases empathy and increases creativity.  Through reading you become increasingly aware of your own ignorance and it somehow leaves you open to learn from others and being open minded to different concepts.  It also opens an awareness of your own inner self and allows you to turn inwards for answers.  Lastly, when you’re reading fiction you’re engaging part of your brain that is creating and visualising as though you’re also experiencing the story.

I see reading for what it is:  A way for someone to express themselves onto paper, communicating with others and sharing their story.  It’s personal and wide spread at the same time.  Purchase your books in hard copy, soft copy or audio and receive knowledge and insights.  This year so far, I’ve read 17 books to date!
