Reading is Important
People are living in a world where new technological advances have replaced the desire to read. Reading, in my opinion, has become less important to many adults and children. Some children and teenagers prefer to watch a movie or playing video games instead of reading a book. Some adults prefer to watch television than to read a good novel. These examples are what some people are going through due to the enhancement of technology. Reading, in some people’s agenda, is not as important as it used to be like in the early 1900’s. To some people watching a movie or basketball game on television is more important than reading a book.

As a university student, I am entering into a world where reading has become a necessity. While attending high school, I did not have to read as much because the teachers were not so demanding and some teachers were not making it mandatory to
Playing sports is not the reason why I am going to college. Reading is important to him, while playing sports was important to me. While all my friends were playing basketball, I did not want to be the only one in the house reading. In my opinion, a good reader is a person who can better understand the concepts and ideas the author is trying to portray. Professors require for a student to read their material, thoroughly and concisely, preparing for an exam. I know this was not bad, but it sure affected my SAT scores, my ability to think critically, and my ability to write good essays. When I compare my friend and me, I see a huge distinction in the impressions that reading has left both of us. My parents never read a children"tms book to me when I was a kid. A student could copy each others homework without the teacher ever noticing. Being a CSUB student one has to be more self-minded and do his own work. I committed all my spare time to practicing. I assume reading has affected his life in a great way. I was more involved in playing basketball.
