It is a well known fact that reading is excellent for brain development and ever expanding brain plasticity (which does not seize up like an old engin at seven or twenty as was believed before science indisputably proved otherwise). It stimulates creative thinking as images are involuntarily mustered up while words flow through the ever active and neuron pathway growing brain.
READING CAN IMPROVE OUR MEMORY. When you read, you are engaging a number of brain functions, such as phonemic awareness, visual and auditory processes, comprehension, fluency, and much more.
Reading jolts your brain into action, maintains concentration, and allows your mind to process the events happening in the eye of your mind.
Reading calms your body down on many stress levels as you disengage from your immediate environment. The moment you enter a vivid dream state, new synapses starts to form, sending new information along new pathways.
An intensly researched, historically correct and beautifully written story by Barbara Townsend.
Sneek preview snippet:
“There is another character in Out of Mind, and that is the Island itself…
Afterwards with supper cleared away and the children asleep, husbands and wives would sit in the lamplight playing cards or reading, looking up from time to time at the well-known face to see if it was time to go to bed. Forgetful in each other’s arms of the desolate wind that sighed around the corners of the house and the way the darkness in the small hours seemed to rise up from the earth like some dreadful blanket that could smother you. Even on a perfect blue day, suddenly at a place where the yellow daisies bent in the breeze, you would start at a voice whispering or hear footsteps and look behind you. But there was nothing except the tightness in your throat. The constant reminder that the Island wasn’t really the country village you wanted it to be.
This beautiful cover for Out of Mind was designed by Charles Abbott who unified all the different images to create exactly the feeling at the heart of the story. I am thrilled with it.”
