Discussion in 'Books' started by seafort11, Oct 14, 2009.
I read because I am deeply unsatisfied with the world I live in.
I read because I want to gain information about a certain subject.
other than that, I don't.
A mixture of the above, I guess.
The majority of books I own tend to be non-fiction, covering my varied interests. The majority of fiction I tend to borrow from the public library.
Yeah, it allows you to mix with a better class of people Trouble I find is that it's a depressing come-down when having to deal with the majority of people you meet in "real" life
I read because I'm interested in the variety of descriptive finesse that people possess.
It's also a relaxing, leisurely, and cozy way to be introduced to new ideas.
I read to be finding things out. But I dig audio books best particularrly ones having to do with R.L. STINE.
I read because it's a way to time travel until someone actually does lol. It also is a way to make the unreal real.
To expand my mind and commune with the great minds of the past.
Because there are some amazing stories that have been written; plain and simple. The beauty and poetry of some of the ideas being presented is just astounding. I'm talking more about 'literature' than your standard drugstore novel, obviously. It's a great way of conveying subjective experience and showing different philosophies in action. It's a great escape from reality, but perhaps more importantly, it allows one to step into a different reality which one finds interesting. That's why I read.
Great mind candy
To better my intellect and to widen my thought with what goes on in other peoples heads.
Its like asking
Why do you watch Tv?
I read because it satisfies me and takes up my spare time. Its entertaining as well.
to see if anyone left money in them..
I read books because they're more interesting than the back of soup cans.
Escapism, and the quest for knowledge.
I read books to better my writing, mostly. I mean, sure, I still love reading, but there's definitely an ulterior motive of self-improvement there, and if I decide a book has nothing to offer in that area, there is a pretty fair chance I'll stop reading it.
Because books unravel a world we wish we had. Some books dive deep into our imaginations where we can be free just for a moment while we turn the pages. Others inform us, and beter our understanding. I read books to inspire me to live everyday as an adventure like the character in many fictions.
Thats what video games are for.
I just read books when i want to feel smart.
only 1 of 2 reasons.
For enlightenment. -To learn something I did not already know.
or entertainment. Because movies are summed up dramatized versions of the book they were scripted from.
I think I began as an escape from the scary world and people I lived with. Now it's more just for fun!
