Today I found this article from the US News called “21 Things We're Learning to Live Without” . The articlediscusses the things people are giving up because of the recession and the high unemployment rate. Before reading the article I knew without a doubt that learning to read, or reading in general would not make the list. We need to be able to read. It can be a solution to overcoming unemployment and other negative effects of the economy. Reading opens up an incalculable amount of knowledge that can help us solve a wide range of problems. Not only does reading help us by offering information and education but it also offers a cheap form of entertainment- yet another way reading can help us in the current economy.
We recently published an article on our At Home website titled: “Reading Horizons is a Proven Job Performance Skill Booster” which discusses how Reading Horizons can help both unemployed and employed individuals. Check out the job performance skill boster article.
