Novels in the News

"A University of Michigan **study** published in the Harvard Educational Review in 2008 reported that ...'only reading novels on a regular basis outside of school is shown to have a positive relationship to academic achievement.'” (Rosen).

"The [2007] NEA report also found that regular reading is strongly correlated with civic engagement, patronage of the arts, and charity work. People who read regularly for pleasure are more likely to be employed, and more likely to vote, exercise, visit museums, and volunteer in their communities; in short, they are more engaged citizens.'(Rosen).
