Reading books provides pleasure and provide for the scholar during idle time. Hence reading should be an activity that should be carried out not only for academic purposes but also for leisure. The words in books give us the pleasure by impressing us with convictions.
The main purpose then for reading is the nourishment of the mind, by giving the mind knowledge. While reading may seem easy it entails effort and commitment, for the effort we put in our other activities should be the same effort we put into reading. Without the proper identification of words and their meaning then reading becomes useless.
