There are probably a number of reasons why we like to read. I enjoy reading because it gives me an escape from all the hustle and bustle of every day life. If I’ve had a particularly stressful day, I can pick up a book and within minutes, I’ve immersed myself in the story and I’ve forgotten all about the hard day I’ve just experienced. It’s like giving your brain a vacation (but it’s cheaper than taking an actual vacation). I find reading to be something that is very relaxing. There are also some entertainment value in it…….it’s like the people who enjoy watching tv or movies (although I must admit I like to do those as well but probably not more than reading). You get to be transported to another place (and often times a completely different time) where you can spend countless hours learning about what is in that world that is created by the author that wrote that piece of literature. I guess I find it interesting to see what other people come up with just by using their imagination. So, if you don’t mine me asking, what are your reasons for reading? Feel free to leave a comment…
