I strongly believed that reading books are a good habit and exercise to practice your english skills and vocabulary. It also gives additional knowledge as well.

I agree - it's a GREAT habit to have! I think it helps keep our minds keen. I don't know that that is even true, but I like to think so. Plus it's more educational than just watching TV - we can use our imaginations when picturing what is going on in the book, we learn new words, strengthen our vocabulary and literary skills, and so on. I don't think everyone has this habit - in fact I know quite a few people who claim to be "non-readers" - they just don't ENJOY reading. Which is a shame, they are definitely missing out! I can name a lot more of my favorite books than I can name favorite TV shows. There's something so much cooler about reading if you ask me! I am off to read some right now! Happy MyLotting!

I used to read a books lot when I was a kid... now with the internet I barely have time to read books. I still read articles online but I can really feel that my attention span has shortened, I just got so used to ctrl+f and immediately finding whatever information I need. Bummer, eh?

Reading is really just one of the best habits that you could have. It is just something that is going to ensnare all of the senses, really take us right into a journey to some land of mystery. I just enjoy sitting down with a nice book, kicking back and relaxing, with a great smile on my face, just enjoying the experience of reading. It is a great habit, one of the greatest right in the world and one that can really enrich your life. It is just really a shame that many people don't like to really read all that much. They just feel like reading is something that is a chore. In reality, it is rather something that is a matter of finding the right book. Some people have found the right book but some people have not. And some get turned right off at a young age sadly. Still reading is just a great habit to have and one of my favorite hobbies that I indulge in on the time.

Yes, I do think that reading is a good habit to have. I think that there's a lot to gain by reading, and making a habit of it. It's something good to do.

I agree with your title. Reading is indeed a good habit. I am a bookworm when I was in grade school until high school that I miss right now. But because of my wish to learn more, I still try to find the time to read. Even in making a decision for my future, I feel I need to read more in order to get more information that will open up more options for me. Especially in my life right now, where I am standing at the fork of the road, I need to learn more on how to lead my life, to choose the best path, from where I am that would lead me to my goals.

I think reading is most important gift we got. Reading is a nourishment to the mind. It makes you to think on many aspects of life. Reading regularly gives you very much info on different subjects. Even a word read is never a waste. But, we need to control which books we read. Reading rich & good meaningful content is a worth than reading useless novels or stories. I prefer to read current affairs, news, general knowledge, spiritual type of books and well known novels only. Reading gives me a lot of pleasure.

I really believe that reading is very important and in fact it's one of the best way to learn about things aside from actual involvement or experience. I remember my mom motivating me to read the kid encyclopedias that she got me when I was young. She keeps on reminding me to be a wild reader. As I was growing up, even though I have a great interest in studying, I find reading a bit boring but as I mature, I realized that reading isn't bad at all. In short, it just really depends on what you are reading.
