Reading Books Can Add Years To Your Life

“The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you’ll go.”


[Extract from that wonderful book, “I Can Read With My Eyes Shut” by Dr. Seuss. (Theodor Seuss Geisel or Theo LeSieg, was an American children’s author, political cartoonist, illustrator, poet, animator, screenwriter and filmmaker).]

It is possibly one of the very few shops, here in Thurles, Co. Tipperary, where you, without difficulty, could solve all of your Christmas gift problems with ease and within one hour. I am referring of course to Eason, situated at the bottom of the main isle in Thurles Shopping Centre.

The store can fulfil the wishes of just about every man, woman and child, and not just in their book title offerings, which are truly extensive; but also through sales of National Lottery Tickets, Toys, Christmas Cards, Jewelry, Diaries, Filofaxes, Calendars, Jigsaws, Mass Cards, Birthday Cards, Get Well Cards, Scented Candles and Back-to-School paraphernalia of every discription, to name but some of the stock being carried this Christmas time.

Yes, this is the same lucky Eason establishment, which successfully sold three winning National Lottery Jackpot tickets, with prize-winners collecting a whopping total of €26 million Euro, in prize money.

But of course this family run store’s greatest asset is the service provided by a dedicated group of employees, latter who instantly takes ownership of their particular role within the Eason organisation. All staff here are fully trained and committed to the mission of their business; living the values that have been created by three generations of the same local O’Toole family.

Why not check out the Eason store for yourself during this festive season?

Incidentally, talking about books and reading; did you know that reading books can add years to your life?

A research team at Yale University tracked some 3600 adults all over the age of 50 years for 12 years. Results of their research indicated that people who read books for just 30 minutes each day, lived nearly two years longer, than those who simply read magazines or newspapers.

Scientific research has proven that reading can achieve many incredible effects on our everyday lives. It can improve our health and emotional understanding, while boosting our intelligence and creativity and reducing stress. The brain’s ability to become fully immersed and distracted in a book, is what makes reading the perfect way to relieve stress.

Indeed, it also seems that the sooner you start reading to your new born child, the better, with the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD), back in 2012, highlighting research which confirms that children who are read to in their early years, grow to be become better readers themselves, by the age of 15 years.
