Sharpen Your Mind
A mystery novel stimulates your brain.
It simulates real life – While you are reading, your brain experiences the events of the book as if they are actually occurring. This is how astronauts learn to fly a space shuttle.
Provides puzzles to work through – The story challenges your ability to think and prompts neuroplasticity, the ability to adapt and change.
Teaches – The brain is always absorbing and analyzing new information (it’s a survival thing).
Increases attention – Following the clues encourages you to notice details, and recall when/where you saw that tidbit before.
