Reading is an activity none can avoid it starts right from our days, as toddlers continues through out our lives be it in schools, colleges, and work place or for pleasure. One cannot do without reading. It is rightly said "today's readers, tomorrow's leaders", as reading opens you up to a new world of knowledge, wisdom and ideas which we are ignorant of.

To explain this point further here's a quote I read somewhere - "The connection between speed reading and comprehending what is read is like a film." Slow down the film, and the movement and meaning slows and the film's impact is diminished. Viewers won't learn as much about the film if they are not in synchronization with the film's normal speed. With reading the same thing can happen. When a person reads word-by-word, understanding single word at a time, they are not reading on the level of ideas put forth. You need to read on some level that's more conversational and allow words to coalesce into ideas themselves."
