The Benefits of Reading

Reading has helped me a lot in my life. I can never get an A for my English if I did not read a lot. This essay I wrote for my English exam, paper 1, Section B; Continuous Writing. I got 43 for this section. This essay is based on my real experience of the benefits I earned from reading.

     We had been taught to read since kindergarten. All of us know how to read, right? Students always read in school. However, some of them only read because they have to. Not because they want to. Most of them have no idea that reading could bring them such good benefits.

     First, reading can improve our knowledge. You do not have to read only the school books that contain the learning from the syllabus. You can just pick up anything from the library and believe it or not, no matter how ridiculous a book can be, there will still be some facts inside. Fun facts are good because you can remember because you enjoy them.

     Second, it can improve your writing skill. When writing, some people could stuck in the middle without ideas especially students. With reading, you can write a lot of things since you have read so many writings. Some people may not realise that. As a conclusion, them more you read, the more you will write.

     Next, reading will also improve your imaginations. For example, when you read story books, your mind will imagine the things which are happening in the books. As they start doing it, they will continue doing it in their everyday lives even when they are not reading. Imagining is really helpful if you like to create a story.

     Then, you can also think deeply and not based on one thing only. Everyone have different opinions and thoughts. So, if you read multiples books in your life, you will definitely know that one thing happens can be based on millions of theories. For example, some said earth and men were created by God but some said earth occur from a big explosion, also known as 'The Big Bang' theory and men began from an ape-like creature.

     Life is too short to learn everything by yourself. So, do not waste your opportunity to fill your life with reading. Altogether, you can improve your knowledge, increase your writing skill, improve your imaginations and to think based on many opinions and thoughts. There is no harm trying. Read and you will open your mind.
