We all know that reading is important. It is such a struggle to fit reading into our busy lives. A dedicated reading space that inspires you to sit down daily may be just the ticket to becoming a lifelong book lover! Here are just some of the benefits that you will reap in your life if you build a library in your finished basement.

Life is hard, give yourself a break. Escape into the lines of an incredible story. Tension will drain away and you will feel invigorated and ready to face tomorrow!

2.  Knowledge  

This one is a no brainer. If you want to improve your skills and knowledge set in any area, there is no better way to do so than in a great book on the topic - be it personal, financial or even your health. Become knowledgeable by reading a good book!

3. Get Rich

Ok, maybe not...but one habit held by the top 1% of income earners is that they read one book per month. In fact, according to Brian Tracy:

 “If you read only one book per month, that will put you into the top 1% of income earners in our society. But if you read one book per week, 50 books per year, that will make you one of the best educated, smartest, most capable and highest paid people in your field. Regular reading will transform your life completely.”

So...finishing your basement could pay for itself!

4.  Improve Memory

When you read, you are creating new memories. Creating new memories helps builds synapses and strengthens existing synapses in your mind. So basically, you are doing strength training for your mind. Bulk up with a good book!

5. Greater Verbal Abilities

When you read, you expand your vocabulary. The more books you read, the greater the expansion! Being articulate can help you in any career field.

6. Improve Focus and Concentration

Reading is an immersive activity. You shut out the outside world and fully engage in the book's content. Steadily practicing this over time will help you have greater focus in other areas of your life.

As you can see, there are many benefits to having a library with a reading nook in your basement. Make sure that your water proofing and finishing are well done to protect your investment of books and materials! Humidity can create mold damage in books.
