To escape the world
To "cure the mind"
Becuase I'm a literature student. Lately most things I've read has been stuff I need to read for my course. I also read a lot of psychology related books for my couse and because it interests me.
Other than that I read for escapism and pleasure.
i think people who don't like to read just haven't found the book they like
either that or they have a learning disability that makes reading hard. and practice will make it better!
You will never see me without a book in my hand or on my person.
I LOVE READING.

Books are gooder than pictures.
They make stories more better.

I agree with you Burntblood it allow our imagination to create its own pictures.
To learn... to engage in hearing different opinions... to develop more knowledge about myself and other cultures... to be entertained and laugh... to kill time.... to research.... to understand others better.... to stimulate my imagination and make me think... to know what the current 'in' thing is about so I can discuss it... to search out like-minded people.
I read a LOT.
I think it's wonderful how someone else can put words together on a page and when I enjoy it, I have a film instantly running in my imagination. Of course, if I don't like it, it gets tossed aside like a bad movie trailer.
