Silent Reading Parties--How Great Does This Sound?

So you know how you keep reading that contact with others makes people live forever with minimal
cognitive loss? And you worry about that because contact with others isn't something you're particularly good at or even care about? Yeah, I may have found something for

Silent Reading Parties. You get together with other people and read! You don't have to talk to them, because you're all reading! If you meet in a bar, you can buy something to eat and drink! If you meet in a library, you don't even have to do that!

This is genius. It could add years to my life.

Hi Gail,
The link doesn't seem to be working :(

Thanks. I originally had some ellipses in "Silent Reading Parties," and that wrecked the link. It should be working now.

I've heard about this concept before but hadn't seen this article. Thanks! I swear I'm going to host one of these someday I have several local friends who would come (and many long distance friends who would wish they could come).

I would go. But, you know, not across country.
