We all read for different reasons. The most common one is of course it's a great way to spend some free time. Research has clearly shown tons of benefits of reading regularly so that's a no-brainer.

But I want to know if anyone has any specific reasons for being an avid reader? 

For example, for me, it's a great way to escape from reality. When I'm reading a novel, I get so immersed in it that the fictional world starts to feel real. And I love that experience.  Stories make me believe that everything is possible. :)

So.. why do you read?

same here, i read to escape from reality and to know more about other people..i mean there are so many different stories, different countries, different people, different situations and its like a totally new world every time... i mainly read love stories...even though they are far far away from reality but still it feels good to read them and dream about them...

i think too much about everything, started readin cause of the craze of Alchemist and got a pirated copy for myself. from there to now - i read mainly as a means of escapism. no worries and no thinking too much
