Reading is fun

By Tori NIx

Reading is a complex, cognitive process of decoding symbols in order to construct or derive meaning. The interaction between the text and the reader is shaped by the readers’ prior knowledge, experiences, attitide, and language community which is culturally and socially situated.

When you read a book, or any readingĀ for that matter, it is beneficial. Reading builds fluency, increases vocabulary, and builds background. Many people say that reading makes you anti-social. But, reading helps you gain an understanding of human nature.

Reading can affect your mood. When you read a sad story, you get sad. When you read an inspiring or motivational story, you feel inspired; with a happy story, it can brighten your mood. Reading can also stimulate your creative imagination. Reading gives you insight to the now, the future, and the unknown.
