The importance of reading

Reading is very interesting and important because it gives you knowledge. I read story books, magazines, newspapers etc. My favourite authors are Enid Blyton and Roald Dahl. I read after I come from school, on weekdays and on weekends. I have a collection of books in my bookshelf. I have the series of Roald Dahl, Famous Five, Secret Seven and many other books. I also have many encyclopaedias including an encyclopaedia of dinosaurs. Reading helps us to gain knowledge. Reading also helps us to learn new words and their meanings. I love to read in my leisure time because I like to learn more and more.
