Reading has many benefits; here are 10 reasons which should encourage you to read.

1. Vocabulary: When you read an article or a book you may come across a new word(s) or a different usage of a word you are already familiar with.

2. Creativity: Unlike a TV serial or a movie, reading will make you think.

3. Pleasure: A good book or article is as enjoyable as a game of baseball.

4. History: Other than history books we can also learn historical facts by reading biography/autobiography or by reading books or novels set in a particular period or era.

5. News and Information: Magazines and newspapers not only keep us updated about the current events but about family, living, food, trends, etc.

6. Empathy: This is especially true for readers of literary fiction. The reason being, the incompleteness of the characters turn readers into writers.

7. Reduces stress: A good entertaining novel can also reduce a lot of stress.

8. Fighting Alzheimer’s: A study showed that elderly people who regularly read or play mentally challenging games are 2 ½ times less likely to have the debilitating illness.

9. Life goals: Reading about someone who overcame obstacles may motivate you to meet your own goals.

10. Reading can save your cash: Reading is always cheaper than splurging your money at a pub or watching a movie at a cinema hall.

  1. Wonderful article! I have always been a reader and most my life have learned more from a self help book than I could from a person. The written word gives the reader the freedom to relax and breath in the message in privacy as opposed to a classroom setting or a one on one discussion with eyes watching your expression

  4. Love this article. Books open doors to knowledge. As an educator, I encourage kids to read daily. Reading a good book promotes imagination and creativity and develops vocabulary and stamina. Kids who read perform better in school. Not only do I enjoy reading, I enjoy writing books as well.

  5. Books have always been an important part of my life. As a child, I loved reading books and felt reading helped me process and connect to the world around me. I still enjoy reading books and I agree that the ten benefits you outlined are perfect reasons to read.
