But in reality, that's not true. I'm always reading. I read blogs, newspapers, signs, warranties, owner's manuals, magazines, documents, nutrition labels, ads, labels, recipes, emails, websites, instructions, and many other non-fiction items.
All reading is good for you. Every time you read, your reading skills improve a little. You don't have to read a novel, just read whatever is available. And keep reading and reading and reading.
