Scientists have found that reading fiction is good for your health. We knew that already, right?

Whew! I am just back from the Children’s Field Trip morning at the S.C. Book Festival, and the Editorial Assistant, Mom Karen, has put me to work again!

Was it in my contract when she adopted me from Carolina Poodle Rescue that I would have to work? Has it escaped everyone’s attention that I am a Standard Poodle, for gosh sake? I thought I would have a life of leisure! And bonbons, of course!

Anyway, I did my best and let the children hug, pat and kiss me after Mom Karen talked to them about books and writing and me — yes, me, me, me! The children were very smart and asked many good questions. We were very impressed by their smartness!

Besides, someone has to help the Editorial Assistant out, and I guess it’s not too bad of a job. I do get good snackees after all. And I insist on napping when I return home.

It should come as no surprise, however, that Mom Karen has pulled out all the stops to let people know everything about why you should read. She even found an article that tells why reading fiction will improve your health!

A scientist said it was true, so maybe it is.

You can even have a snackee while reading the article, and it doesn’t have to be a vegetable. But don’t let anyone know I said that!
