Importance of  Reading
It Helps Develop interest
As I’ve said many times before, schools/Institutes aren’t looking for the mythical “well-rounded student.” Instead, colleges want to build well-rounded classes made up of specialists — or students with a defined interest that they’ve honed and intend to pursue in college. Becoming a specialist means identifying and exploring a particular passion or interest, and one of the best ways to do this is through reading.

It will enhance Your Vocabulary..
The more words you’re exposed to, the better chance that they will eventually make their way into your own internal word bank. Studies have shown that the more students read, the better their vocabularies, which can come in handy when preparing for standardized tests. Not only does reading provide the vocabulary, but also the context to derive its meaning — which is a key component of critical reading passages on the SAT and ACT. By reading challenging material, you’re practicing for standardized tests without even knowing it!

Its Relaxing.
Apart from the obvious academic benefits that can help you improve your chances of getting into your dream college, reading is also a great way to decompress and de-stress. Even just reading for a short amount of time can reduce stress levels by up to 68%. This is important for students struggling with the balance among school, extracurricular activities and standardized test prep.

Reading is important because it develops the mind. 
The mind is a muscle. It needs exercise. Understanding the written word is one way the mind grows in its ability. Teaching young children to read helps them develop their language skills. It also helps them learn to listen. Everybody wants to talk, but few can really listen. Lack of listening skills can result in major misunderstandings which can lead to job loss, marriage breakup, and other disasters – small and great. Reading helps children [and adults] focus on what someone else is communicating.

Discover New Things
Books, magazines and even the Internet are great learning tools which require the ability to read and understand what is read. A person who knows how to read can educate themselves in any area of life they are interested in. We live in an age where we overflow with information, but reading is the main way to take advantage of it.

Develops The Imagination
TV and computer games have their place, but they are more like amusement. Amusement comes from two words “a” [non] and “muse” [think]. Amusement is non-thinking activities. With reading, a person can go anywhere in the world…or even out of it! They can be a king, or an adventurer, or a princess, or… The possibilities are endless. Non-readers never experience these joys to the same extent.
