Why we in society should read books

By: Erin James and Stephanie Schimmel

Our World Today

Today, the amount of reading done by people has gone down immensely because in the world we live in now, it revolves around technology, and the majority of books become movies anyhow, so people think, why bother?

Why Read?

Reading does not only improve your learning skills to gain everyday knowledge, but it also teaches you about different literature and cultures. It's shown that students that read more, tend to get better grades and have greater attitudes about school. By reading, you broaden your vocabulary, and when writing things, you make less mistakes because you know how to understand the type of writing already. Reading is important because it keeps your brain functioning and can help you in not just school activities, but in your everyday life.
