10 reasons why reading is the best

In A Game of Thrones, Jon Snow asks Tyrion Lannister why he reads so much. ‘A mind needs books as a sword needs a whetstone, if it is to keep its edge,’ Tyrion explains. Taking Tyrion’s words as gospel, here are 10 reasons why reading is the best, and why tonight you should pick up a book, rather than staring at a screen.

1. Because you know what’s going on in the film/tv show
