I believe reading, especially for fun is very important because it enriches our daily lives. In a hectic world where everything is dictated by schedules, reading can provide a much needed escape. With a good book, it's possible to travel to far off countries or even make-believe places. Reading fosters empathy as we form connections with the characters and become invested in their stories. Reading can also increase vocabulary, spelling and writing ability which is detrimental in a society that has become dependent on technology. It helps develop a strong imagination and foundation for a lifelong love of learning!
