It helps to strengthen your problem-solving skills, it helps to fill in your knowledge gaps, it helps to understand people around you better, and above all, reading fiction can increase your vocabulary, relieves stress, improves memory and helps to sleep better. So, choose a title of any author from the above and read when you travel or while you are at home.
