    I always read books to improve my understanding and comprehension. Everytime I read a certain book it widens my creativity and imagination. This will broaden my anticipation for the author and think of ideas and questions. For me to able to comprehend I need concentration and motivation so that I will have greater interest to what I am reading. When I able to completely grasp the information written in the pages of the book, I was able share it properly because I wanted to share what I have learned.
  3. For me, it has many purpose of reading. It can expand your vocabulary. It helps you understand things. To add our knowledge in a specific fields.
  4. Also, reading can improve your communicating skills and interpreting other language. For you?

    Knowing the purpose of reading is very important for us, living in this new era. Reading was already part of the lives of our greatest ancestors, where they invented this so called activity. They made their first symbols and letters in order for them to communicate to each other. It took awhile to unravel the cravings. And due to the great minds we have today, we can able to trace back the history through reading books from the past. Although we may not see or sense the greater story behind it but through reading, we could shape the world around us. The greater purpose of reading is passing on a new form of ideas where it gives impact to the world we live in.

    There are lots of purposes of reading. First I think is for development because, in our elementary days, our teacher helped us to read for learning and developing our skills. We also read because we need to broaden or enhance our knowledge of the things we don't know about. Lastly, we read to enjoy. Personally, I read to pass the time and if I am bored. It somehow relieves the stresses I have and it also gives me fresh perspectives. There are other purposes of reading out there but I think these three are the main reasons.


    The purpose of reading is to connect the ideas on the page to what you already know. If you don't know anything about a subject, then pouring words of text into your mind is like pouring water into your hand. ... You have a framework in your mind for reading, understanding and storing information.

    The purpose of reading is twofold; firstly, reading is a way to improve one’s knowledge – be it for the purpose of formal studies, or due to fascination with certain topics. The world we live in is vast and ever evolving, so how can we expect to keep up with it if we rely on information gleaned some 20 to 30 years ago. The answer is simple; we can’t. No matter what the source of our reading is, we are learning from the material. Secondly, reading is a form of escapism into a world far-removed from our own day-to-day existence. What better way to kill time or unwind than with a good book, a comfy couch, and a cup of tea (or wine!).

    I usually read to escape reality. I like to read fictional, magical stories. When I read I imagine myself being in their world and being in the book. It is an amazing feeling, I get to feel like another person when I put myself on the author’s book. That is my main point of reading stories and novels but then now, I am already an adult. So I also read some self-help books, regarding finances, dieting, exercises and etc to be a better person all in all. To learn some skills in the process of reading self-help books.

    I read because I want to know current events and be aware of what's happening around the world. I also read because I want to increase my knowledge about something, enhance my vocabulary and improve myself.

    As for me, I read books not only to develop my reading skills but also to engage myself in a different interesting stories. When I read, I feel like I am involve or I am the leading character of the story. I just don't love the crafted pages but I also take pride in the number of books I read.

    Books are like food for your mind. You don't need to memorize everything!
    When you read to learn something, you have to practice it or implement it - that's the purpose of reading something to learn. When you read to pass your time, you simply read the book and enjoy your time.

    There are tons of reasons why people would read such article or book. Mine is that I can use it as future references in my work or maybe just to relax myself and be on my creative side. Reading is fun. It can make you go anywhere, everywhere without leaving your couch. It can make you believe with fantasies or imagine what might the future will be. Well, as what others would say, "books are powerful."

    Reading is the avenue of a life well spent.

    We read to better ourselves. We read to learn of our true selves. We read to be ourselves. That is what I believe. Because reading is everything. It fills our lives from beginning to end. We learn to read in our early years of childhood. And yet we learn to see life as it truly is just before we pass away.

    It's sad. But there is truth in sadness.

    Reading is beyond the mere text. To read is to learn the truth of life. Our lives as human beings. The greatest joy awaits in discovery. When we first learn of something, we feel a surge of emotion. It's this thrill of the moment that encourages us to keep going. To keep moving forward.

    And the purpose of reading is to be. To be true to yourself. To live in truth and knowledge. But most of all, to culminate kindness in all.

    The purpose of reading is to acquire knowledge and to stimulate an individual's mind. Reading can fill your mind with any information which can be useful in any given situation in your life. It is an escape from a person's everyday routine that can provide benefits whether to improve memory, to get entertainment or just reduce stress.

    When we were Preschoolers, we learn to read. After third grade, we read to learn.

    Though I don’t consider myself a bibliophile or a bookworm, I just love reading books for three main reasons. First, reading books fires up my imagination. It is like opening a window to another world and time, to a fantasy land, to a mysterious place and more. Second, it fills my mind with knowledge and wisdom. Primarily, it can cure ignorance. Third, I can feel a sense of accomplishment and happiness every time I read books.

    Great leaders and world’s most successful people are readers. I guess reading is also a gateway to success. What do you think?

    I enjoy the entertainment factor, as well as the opportunity to view a subject from a point of view that might be different from my own.

    A wide reader person is a very observant person as well, some would say. But why do we read? Some use reading for killing time. Some would read just for leisure and some for education and others just read because they have no choice but to read (which usually happens in academic textbook)

    In my case, I read because. . . shall I say all of the mentioned reasons above. Yes, I read for leisure, to kill time, to be more informed and I read because I have no choice but to read or else I will Fail (in school exams). But most of the time, I read because i simply love to read. Whether its for current events or novels.

    Reading is like investing in yourself; preparing yourself what will happen in the future; reading is gaining knowledge, ideas, hope and wisdom. These four that you can acquire by reading can actually save the world by rotting by ignorance. The purpose of reading for me is to save the world to become a better human person and help or teach individuals in able for them to be knowledgeable in order for them to be a good teacher of tomorrow. Whenever you read you experience the author's experience and we all know that the best teacher is none other than: the experience, so by reading a book you can learn from the mistakes of others.
  26. The purpose of reading is will help you to enhance your knowledge. Because you will able you to understand things clearer and widerer if you read. Also reading is decoding what is written to the text.

    I read for many reasons: Firstly, to further my learning about things, the world and life in general. Secondly, I read to be entertained. Lastly, I read to keep myself informed.

    Reading is perhaps one of the most diverse forms of media in existence. While there may only be a handful of ways one can read a book, the subjects and ways that they are written are as numerous as the stars. So what then is its purpose? Reading's purpose to me is education. Whether you're reading for pleasure or profit, you usually end up learning something. If it isn't a new word that you've never seen before then it might be something about the world that you've never known, or maybe even something about yourself. Altogether I think that reading is a teacher, and while not every book may be education, it still teaches you something.
