Reading is always a good idea!
I totally agree.
Personally I am an avid reader, but currently I have a reading dip (can't find the motivation/concentration etc. to read for fun).
People often have to laugh about the range of books I read. You can find me reading those simple (Harlequin) romance novels, but also children/young adolescent novels, thrillers (Lee Child, Patterson, Karin Slaughter), fantasy and related (Game of thrones; Outlander; Virals; Percy Jackson and other books from Rick Riordan), (semi-)scientific books and so on. Just were my mind is into at the time.
