Speech on “Importance of Reading”

Good morning, respected Principal, teachers and my dear friends! Today I am going to talk to you about the importance of reading.

Reading has at all times and in all ages been a great source of knowledge. It has many benefits.

Reading skills are essential to succeed in society. Those who are good readers tend to exhibit progressive social skills. A person who is an avid reader is able to mix with others. He is a better conversationalist than those who do not read. He can stand his ground. Reading broadens one’s horizons. It is in a way a substitute for travel. It is not possible to travel as much as one would like to but reading can fill in the gap created by the lack of travel. Confidence in reading only comes from the daily practice of reading. A good reader can interact with others in a far better way because reading has widened his vision and point of view. Thus a widely-read man is a better conversationalist and is able to understand other’s points of view. It also helps to think rationally and analytically.

Those who are habitual to reading feel comforted with books. It soothes and relieves tension and loneliness. Medically it also plays a vital role in eradicating depression and unrest.

I hope all of you will cultivate the habit of reading regularly to reap its many benefits.

Thank you
