It’s not a coincidence that those who read more on their own have more wealth than those who don’t. This has been a proven fact for the last 100 years. It’s the reason libraries were created, so that the wealthy and poor had the same opportunities.
Studies have shown that most upper-class and wealthy support family reading time. Those that have gained wealth, know that reading on their own was a huge factor. They gained unique ideas, confidence, better communication skills, and even their stress levels were lowered by 70% compared to others.
The lower-class and poor are not taking advantage of the reading opportunity to gain success. In fact, books are more as a luxury, rather than a necessity. (Those that want to gain wealth consider books a necessity to succeed.)
