The reading culture seems to be dying out despite its undisputable importance to human development. A society that is not literate cannot develop. This imlies that a society that feeds on knowledge will grow and infact stave off disasters because it has a good reading culture. For example, books that detail the error of past people help the current ones to know what to avoid and deal with what cannot be avoided. The benefits of reading are enormous and the scope of learning infinite. Reading books inform, educate and entertain you. The benefits of reading can’t be listed in one place, so I brought you four.
- Reading enhances creativity. Reading is the best way to absorb and acquire knowledge. By reading, you expand your knowledge base and give your mind more data from which you can create things from. Your ability to imagine things broaden as you gain access to various points of view, writing styles and topics.
- Reading aids vocabulary development. Reading books can tremendously improve your vocabulary. You get to pick up or brush up on a language, and you also get to see how certain words are used in sentences.
- Reading improves knowledge. Whatever you read, be it a story, a novel, a poem, an article or anything, it brings knowledge and a better understanding of the world. You get to visit places you probably cannot afford going to or going to yet.
- Reading improves writing skills. Truth is if you don’t read, you cannot write. You just can’t give what you don’t have. The well of information and vocabulary you will employ in writing woulod not be available if you don’t read. So you see, excellent writers are well-read folks.
Hope this meets you well. Have a beautiful week ahead.
