    Reading for school brings stress, since you typically have a set date when you have to finish it. Also, usually when people read things for school it negatively influences their opinion on the book, because they're just angry about being forced to read something rather than doing it on their own time. Reading for school and not by choice can also bring about a lack of concentration and understanding, since most kids aren't interested in what they have to read for school and therefore don't pay attention. If they choose to read something for pleasure, however, they'll be interested in the story and it won't be stressful, it'll be an enjoyable experience.

    You are in study mode when reading to learn, for a class or a test.The stress to be accurate in what you read and figure which areas need more study and taking notes from reading or as you read, knowing methods of how to study, These all place some stress on you. Now reading for relaxation is usually an easy going task and you can pick the books you want to read and, of course, you don't have the stress of preparing for an exam and the associated time constraints.

    Reading is good for you. Its relaxing, its an advantage because you can choose the book that you want and you can visualize the characters and the setting your way (until a movie comes and ruins it). You can improve your reading and learning skills too. :)

    Reading for school can be stressful or boring, I agree on that. But you can find ways to make it fun and simple for you to remember everything!

    Reading is a joy. It's relaxation. It passes the time and it expands the mind.
