Reading

Reading is basically understanding what the writer is trying to expose out of his/her thoughts or circumstances.
Perception and sensitivity is key in reading, and you should have an open heart to assimilate whatever message is being presented to you.
As we can see, it's not very simple, but with training it is possible.
