More Evidence of Good Results of Free Time Reading

Read the whole article, but the lead paragraph sums it up well:
Of all the free-time activities teenagers do, such as playing computer games, cooking, playing sports, going to the cinema or theatre, visiting a museum, hanging out with their girlfriend or boyfriend, reading is the only activity that appears to help them secure a good job
I think reading is valuable without this added benefit, but for all the pragmatists, it's just one more reason to have literature classes or the so called fluff classes like a science fiction class or a mystery and detective fiction class.
