I said yes although it also depends. hear me out :)
First advantage in reading is no doubt increase in vocabulary. A person may have read a story book or book of jokes that can make no sense but in my opinion, reading helps a person have a greater understanding of the world or at least opens one mind to other people's idea. Also, years and years of reading would result in knowledge, better reading comprehension and fast reading skills which would mean... hmm how do i say this.. faster analysis? likewise how video games activity (google's first suggestion while typing haha). There are different type of intelligence and being a wide/big reader could help improve some of them :P
