    Reading and writing skills are very important for everyone, which is why they should always be improved. After all, you need these skills from school, when you need to write an essay or research paper. Personally, not having such skills, I had to turn to the service for help, because it was easier for me to buy a research paper than to write it myself.
    But now I understand that these skills are important, which is why I've been working hard to improve them lately and it's cool.
