    I am a little an oddball among writers, because I don’t condemn the tv set. To the contrary, I believe everyone, and also serious writers, should watch a lot of TV, including TV comedies and dramas, because the audio/visual format provides a perspective that you simply can’t receive reading a manuscript. This flies in the face of the most popular rant, that TV can be a scourge that should be eliminated out of the entertainment landscape.

    However, the recent trend is to watch more TV plus more movies and browse less, when one reads, you just read non-fiction instead of fiction. The causes given range between "Reading is hard" to "Novels are uninformative." But what most people don’t get is the written word, and fiction in particular, provides benefits you can’t receive from other media. By way of example:

    Reading fiction will help you boost your communication skills. A 2008 study by Raymond Mar found out that individuals who read more fiction score higher on tests of empathy and social acumen, understanding that those who read more non-fiction score lower. This is perhaps because through fiction, you have the characters’ social interactions and relationships you might say impossible with many non-fiction.

    Reading fiction energizes the imagination. While reading fiction, your mind reconstructs each scene in far more detail than the author described it. It will so by visualizing the non-existent people and places of the story, often basing these visualizations on a person and places you have often seen. Here is the human power to imagine, to daydream, to invest, to ponder. The ability to imagine separates us using their company animals. It enables us to strategize, to plot, to reason, to learn, to make a better world than existed before.

    Books are cheaper hour-for-hour of entertainment than movies or DVD’s. Specially in tight economic times, it makes sense to foster the thrill of written fiction. For similar amount a 2-hour movie or DVD costs, you can obtain a book that can entertain you for the days, or weeks. Additionally, you can borrow it from your local library totally free.

    Reading relieves stress, and does not overstimulate like TV can. Modern television programming was designed to capture your attention by constantly pinging your mind with abrupt sounds and transitions. This gears your mind up and creates stress. Research at the University of Sussex found out that reading can help to eliminate stress levels by up to 68 percent. Or as cognitive neuropsychologist Dr David Lewis put it, "Losing yourself in the book will be the ultimate relaxation."

    Fiction allows us to get into the narrative, imagine ourselves there, in such a way that non-fiction can’t. A biography is definitely finished before you begin reading it, as it’s in regards to a real person. Even though you have no idea of the precise history of a specific biographical figure, biographies are seldom discussing losers, whereas the loser could be the staple with the fictional story. Or jointly English teacher from Wichita, Kansas put it, "Fiction’s unknowability helps it be a tremendous amount like Life even as we experience it."
