    Improves spelling/grammar, can lead to a wider outlook on life, increased general knowledge, greater imagination (depending on what you're reading though)

    Vocabulary, knowledge, ability to comprehend things you may not have before, depending on the book it can also improve historical knowledge (classical books), social things and human behaviour, science etc.

    Yeah it definately helps with vocab.
    I'd say it probably makes you more culturally aware too.

    So, oh so many reasons. Vocabulary and composition etc etc.

    But, the main reason is that I've never lost myself quite so much as when reading a good book. Beats even a good Boxing match in all honesty.

    I hate it when really good books end, reading them again is never the same when one has a memory as strong as mine.

    when you read your brain is actually learning some of the words whether you think it or not so it does help grammar and spelling, also good for the imagination

    I don't think it improves spelling as much as when you read, you don't tend to take in how the word is spelt, just what it represents in the sentance. I say this because reading has been my main hobby since I was little and I'm a terrible speller
