When Assigned Reading is Pleasure Reading

When Assigned Reading is Pleasure Reading | Library & Information Science | Scoop.it

"Our Reading Lives features stories about how books and reading have shaped who we are and how we live. It is open not only to regular Book Riot contributors, but to guest posters from the publishing industry, authors, and….you. If you are interested in telling us about a book that has been influential in your life, please contact us: community (at) bookriot (dot) com.

 

I am a “bookworm.” I’ve always really enjoyed books and reading. But when I was in school there were always two kinds of books: the ones that were assigned reading, and the ones I was allowed to choose for myself.

 

Assigned books come with a burden..."

Terheck's insight:

Very nice article on the magic of reading, when a book, yes a single book, can change you life forever.

 

And the comments are very nice too, so many touching testimonials.

 

By the way, which book affect you most ?

Most American adults read a print book in the past year, even as e-reading continues to grow | Library & Information Science | Scoop.it

Your Brain on Books: 10 Things That Happen to Our Minds When We Read - OEDB.org

Your Brain on Books: 10 Things That Happen to Our Minds When We Read - OEDB.org | Library & Information Science | Scoop.it

"Any book lover can tell you: diving into a great novel is an immersive experience that can make your brain come alive with imagery and emotions and even turn on your senses. It sounds romantic, but there’s real, hard evidence that supports these things happening to your brain when you read books. In reading, we can actually physically change our brain structure, become more empathetic, and even trick our brains into thinking we’ve experienced what we’ve only read in novels."

"Que l'on vive ici ou là, on ne passe pas le même temps à lire. Par exemple, plus de 10 heures hebdomadaires avec un ouvrage, ne feraient pas de vous un véritable maharadja de la lecture en Inde. Car le pays est le premier au monde en terme de temps passé par habitant : 10 heures et 42 minutes à faire défiler des lignes. L'enquête, réalisée par NOP World , a passé au crible les habitudes des différentes nations de notre petite planète. Et les résultats sont fameux."

A World Digital Library Is Coming True!

by Robert Darnton |New York Review of Books

A World Digital Library Is Coming True!<br/><br/> by Robert Darnton |New York Review of Books | Library & Information Science | Scoop.it
In the scramble to gain market share in cyberspace, something is getting lost: the public interest. Libraries and laboratories—crucial nodes of the World Wide Web—are buckling under economic pressure, and the information they diffuse is being diverted away from the public sphere, where it can do most good.

Good Fiction Has Surprising Effect On The Brain, Scans Reveal

Good Fiction Has Surprising Effect On The Brain, Scans Reveal | Library & Information Science | Scoop.it

It's no secret that reading is good for your brain. But what actually happens inside your brain when you read a great novel?

“Stories shape our lives and in some cases help define a person,” Dr. Gregory S. Berns, director of Emory University's Center for Neuropolicy in Atlanta, said in a written statement. “We want to understand how stories get into your brain, and what they do to it.”
