Reading magazines- reading a magazine in English can be very educational in lot of similar ways just as reading a book would be. There are some important differences though which could be appealing to a reader. The first would be that reading a magazine is far less of a commitment then reading a book. A magazine is normally only about 20 to 50 pages and is constructed of various articles. Another notable difference is that magazine is normally made up with lots of pictures. These pictures can make it easier for the reader to understand by visualization what topic is being talked about. (Everybody knows the saying: ¨ "a picture says a thousand words") Aside from the differences in the organization of the content, the importance of choosing a topic of interest to you is the same, because if one is not interested in what they are reading they will not read.
