Reading amongst Youth

For many years reading has become stigmatized  as boring and useless amongst youths. Casual reading is an uncommon past time in high school and students feel it is 'uncool' to read. However, reading  provides many benefits for students. Students who read often have richer vocabularies, develop better writing skills and are faster readers. High school students who read often will also be better prepared for college. For any athletes out there just think of reading as gym for the brain.

Students, what do you enjoy reading about?

What's the best novel or article you've read lately?
