Reading non-business related writings:[1]

[In addition to the above decree against business documents] they decreed against reading any type of writing, even if it does not contain matters which are forbidden [to do on Shabbos]. Even to read it without verbalizing is forbidden.

The reason for this is: due to a decree that one may come to read, either verbally or in ones thought, layman documents.

Summary:

It is forbidden to read, whether verbally or in one’s mind, even non-business related writings due to a decree that this may lead one to come to read business documents.
