I read for entertainment. Sometimes when I feel television serials bores me, I just open the book and read it. Any books that hook me, I just love it. So no specification for my liking towards books.

I can't really express properly why I read as much as I do. I just know that I wouldn't be myself if reading weren't an integral part of my life.

I've absolutely no idea why I love to read because I've been reading from the time I learned how to read. It's an integral part of me. I can not imagine me not reading.

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? 
Omg thats totally my reason, there a couple more small reasons but that basically is the main reason I read too. Im the type of reader who gets so much into a book while reading that i lose track of everything thats happening aorund me (i.e. if someone is talking to me) and also i have a very good imagination so in total I really get into the book, and everytime i feel like i need to get away from reality books have always been a comfort.

Reading is a major source of entertainment for me. It's just more fun than watching movies/TV for me. Because for one, you can have your own faces for the characters in the books which makes me imagine so much more - I love that since I'm a love-being-in-my-dreamland kinda girl anyway. It's also a direct connection with the author's if I instantly connect w/ a particular author I tend to finish all their it short stories or novels or's all fun. So yes, Answer: I read for fun. :D

i love to read cos no matter what mood i am in sad, angry, depressed etc etc reading a book really refreshes and lifts my mood. i get totally immersed into it. also there are some things which either just cant happen in reality or there's hardly a chance of that happening to me so ya i get to experience those through books. When i am reading its like a movie is playing in my mind. ITs just such a great thing for me.Smile

#1 - when I read it feels like I'm gaining experience just by sitting in my room
#2 - I love how i feel like I'm taken to some place in the world :P
#3 - Books always teach you about life, various aspects of life.
#4 - For vocabulory and knowledge
#5 - To keep myself occupied.
#6 - I just feel satisfied and it's empowering when you gain knowledge.
I cannot really explain why i read or love reading... there was a time when I could not do without reading novels, i was addicted, maybe because I wanted to escape from reality when I was depressed... now, I am not so addicted, but I sure cannot do without reading something :)
