Did you know that reading for just half an hour a week could improve your life?

Although for many of us reading is a luxury that we struggle to make time for on a daily basis, GALAXY® chocolate – on behalf of charity Quick Reads – have discovered that if you pick up a book for just 30 minutes a week, you are 20% more likely to be satisfied with your life.


Reading a book could actually be one of the best ways to be happy and improve your life! Benefits of reading regularly include sleeping better, feeling less lonely, and being generally more creative whilst growing your general knowledge (perfect for pub quizzes!)

Cathy Rentzenbrink from Quick Reads said: “I have always found reading to be a great source of comfort and this research confirms what I have long witnessed professionally: reading can help any one of us to be healthier, happier and ultimately to get more out of life.”

To help everyone get a little bit more reading into their routines, Galaxy®  and Quick Reads have added six news books by amazing authors to the growing Galaxy® Quick Reads series.

Galaxy® Quick Reads are bite-sized books written by best-selling authors which cost only £1! They are available from bookshops, supermarkets, and online – or can be borrowed from libraries across the country. For more information visit www.quickreads.org.uk
