The benefits of reading are boundless.

Teens who read more perform better in vocabulary, spelling, writing, and mathematics (Sullivan & Brown 2013). Those with access to their own books also have significantly higher reading scores. Additionally, reading has been shown to produce the same health benefits as deep relaxation so readers have lower stress, higher self-esteem, and less depression than non-readers (Dovey 2015). In fact, research shows that reading enjoyment is more important for educational success than socio-economic status (OECD 2002).
