I love this tip! As a healthy reader of fiction, I heartily concur. I once worked for a company that would encourage employees to read business geared books to help them succeed in their positions, but they also included a handful of fiction titles in their company library too and I loved it.

Thanks for the comment, Rachel. Personally, I steer clear of novels where the language isn’t straightforward, but that leaves me a broad range of possibilities.
