Read Books, Live Longer?

Even after controlling for other factors that may mean some people are more likely to read than others (education, gender, age, etc.), a recent study shows that people who read more are more likely to live longer

Compared with those who did not read books, those who read for up to three and a half hours a week were 17 percent less likely to die over 12 years of follow-up, and those who read more than that were 23 percent less likely to die. Book readers lived an average of almost two years longer than those who did not read at all.
