Here is a nice post on how reading can improve your life, from the Positivity Blog. I admit to having always been a bit of a bookworm. Even from a very young age I think I've probably averaged about two books a week. There are times when I may only make a chapter or two a week, but then other times make up for it. I also like audiobooks and find them fantastic for those long drives to rides!
I have a book list on the right hand side of my blog that shows some of the books I've been reading or recently read. Sometimes I forget to add new ones, especially if they are audiobooks, as I can really zip through those with all of the traveling that I do. I am fortunate enough to have a local library system where I can check out audiobooks for free at the rate of four every two weeks. I also get books from audible.com, another great source.
Speaking of books - two nice books that I've read recently and recommend to any horse person:
