Grand Central Publishing and Iris Johansen’s HIGH STAKES.

All bets are off as #1 New York Times bestselling author Iris Johansen introduces gambler Logan Tanner. He lives the exhilarating life of a professional gambler, but all the glitz and glamor hide a dark and violent past as an extractor—a world that comes rushing back to him when the beautiful and innocent Lara Balkon enters his life. Logan is drawn into a conflict between two Russian mafia bosses over Lara, her life hanging in the balance. But Tanner will discover that Lara is a force to be reckoned with in her own right.

There’s nothing like adorable kids’ reading chairs to spruce up a reading nook and encourage your kiddo to read. Let’s face it: we’re all way more likely to get caught up in a good book if we’re cozy and comfortable. Why not invest in furniture that adds to the ambience?

Are you unsure that investing in pleasure reading is beneficial? Don’t be! According to a longitudinal study, pleasure reading is an indicator of cognitive function and social mobility. It’s an even better predictor of these things than parental socioeconomic status and educational attainment.

However, the benefits of reading for pleasure don’t stop there. According to a British study, kids who read for fun actually learn better. That’s right! They do better in all subjects. Avid readers are also better test takers and are lest anxious in academic situations. Plus, they grow into adults with more extensive vocabularies who are also more empathetic. Using books as mirrors, windows, and sliding glass doors prepares children for a variety of social situations and interactions.

Unfortunately, studies over the past few decades have shown that people in the United States are reading less. Adults can counteract this decline in children by reading more themselves, as well as by offering children choice while exposing them to lots of great books.

While none of these studies suggest that cute reading chairs increase pleasure reading, it certainly can’t hurt, right? Check out the list below for some great kids’ reading chairs to inspire your young readers.
