What is leisure reading?

Leisure reading is the art of engaging in self-selected reading for personal or social reasons, sometimes called recreational, pleasure, or independent reading (International Reading Association, 2014 ). Studies have found many benefits of leisure reading, such as reduced academic stress, improved reading comprehension, critical thinking and writing skills, better academic success, increased empathy, and promotion of emotional, mental, and social wellness.
