This is an interesting question. Communication is one of the most important aspects of life. For this reason, effective communication is important. So, anything that helps a person communication well is welcome. 

When we put it this way, we can say that reading helps a person communicate for at least two reasons. First, if a person is a voracious reader, then this person will be a lover of words. This will allow a person to choose words precisely and appropriately for any given situation.

Second, a great reader often reads about people, their characters and issues. This creates in a person a greater sensitivity when it comes to others. This, too, allows a person to communicate better.
