Maybe this is a stupid question and professionals do, just when you start to learn any JAPANESE, the emphasis is on the books, understanding the theory and attempts to repeat, what if beginning to take some sort of strange code with comments, to throw, for example, to the reader and in his spare time to read it and translate as in.yaz? And to give this much time.
Just reading, without serious concentration of attention, will boil down to the fact that you will run around in the code and go to the next page
Without understanding what happened in the code
That is not just useless, and very useless
Reading the debug come up after himself will write the same code many times
A lot of times
But even after that without concentration you can miss the nuances

Bad idea. No theory anywhere.
On the other hand, the ability to read code will be useful, but to learn programming in this way is impossible, it's like building to learn from the dismantling of the house.

If you just read fiction, taking a single fold up a sheet of paper and a pencil, it is unlikely that you get to write your novel, even after 100 years.

It's not quite relevant comparison, I think. Reading programs are very similar to the reading Mat. the model, which is described by some formula. The curriculum is essentially the formalization of the algorithm or model to the JAP.
In fact, we can understand what it means, for example, a particular line of code; how much more difficult is to understand why it is there and that describes. Many programs are so complex and multifaceted that to understand them one person is extremely difficult in the details. Even if they are well decomposed. In principle, most often this is not required.
The question is: what you want to achieve by reading source code?
