Simon Savidge opens up about the power of a good page turner

With The Sky Arts Book Club returning for its third series, new research has revealed just how impactful, and even life-changing, reading can be.

Over half (54%) of UK adults say that reading is important for their mental health, with 23% saying that they would have struggled to get through the pandemic without being able to escape reality and turn to a book.

However, with advances in technology, a third (34%) say that they are worried that the pleasure of reading a good book is being lost on younger generations, with this figure jumping to 49% of over 55’s.

Ari spoke to social media star and TV presenter Simon Savidge.
