sora shimano sti reach adjustment question

I just got a road bike w/ the sora sti levers and I want to experiment with the reach adjustment, but don't want to just try w/out really know what I am doing. I want to shorten the reach (as I have small hands). Simple question - which way should I turn the screw?

Clockwise will bring the brake levers closer to the handlebar. Remember, you are pulling on the brake cable while you make this adjustment and you may have to readjust the brakes.
