Reading, for those who, like myself, allow themselves to be taken into the world of the characters, is a way of making yourself a person of more broaden horizons without even realizing it. You absorb many useful qualities such as writing technique, and vocabulary, plus it helps stimulate the mind in only a way that a book can. In my opinion, even if you're not too keen on reading, for whatever reason, find something that sparks your imagination and who knows, we might make a reader out of you yet!
