Reading improves memory, focus and concentration, grows your vocabulary and verbal skills, expands your knowledge and improves your imagination. It's also free entertainment anywhere, great for stress relief, inducing sleep and staving off boredom. Nobody ever regrets taking the time and making the effort to read more.
We thought it would be hard to find the time and motivation, but as we each chose to read what we love, it quickly became a habit we haven't broken yet. Even if its just five minutes before bed or a few minutes whilst waiting for the doors at school to open, we read every day. And we're still loving it.
