How important is Reading Code?

Is reading code an important skill?
If so then what are some good ways/resources to improve or get good at it?
Or, is it something we can figure out ‘on-the-go’ ?

Reading code is important. It helps when you are searching for answers online and when you are looking at documentation. It is critical when you start working on projects with more people.

To be honest, I haven’t seen much advice on how to get good at it except for practice and asking questions about code you’re looking at.
