I read to learn
I read to escape
I read to be happy

Good Topic.
Though there can be a lot of reason each time stumble upon a book, the common thing is that basically i'm just plain curious, that's what makes me open a new book each time!

For a shy girl growing up, books were my best friends...I flew into the world of Enid Blyton, old English Classics...As many of u said it was pure escapism but an addiction as well. The words rejuvenated my soul and gave it wings..So happy that it laid a powerful foundation for the building up of language.M&B was my secret world of romance ..Dreamt of Prince Charming..As u grew up one gets jaded and reality takes the blinkers from your eyes..Still  now I would say a good book  lifts up my spirits and takes me to a far far away land of Utopia

Well ,like the majority of people books are my source of escapism from the boredom of life.There is nothing more fascinating than floating into a fictional world and seeing things through the eyes of diverse characters! :) As a teenager from a small town who lives in the city for education,I don't really have much of a social life.I rarely go on family holidays so books were the only place where I could learn SO much about cultures without having to ever visit places.Sometimes fiction provides you insight into things you haven't ever noticed in real life and that is what makes reading a pleasure :) Plus I realised just a few months back that those years of childhood reading indeed instilled in me a love for language.Somehow or the other English is probably one of the subjects I often manage to score well in :D

I read because I have always read. My mother had somehow programmed me to ready by myself when I was really young, only a baby. Ever since then I have been hooked, quite literally. Approve

I started reading to escape my initial teenage hormonal consequences - in short disasters which I could cause in the real world with my mouth. LOL But truly, reading for me is a beautiful escape where the reality of this fictional world seems engrossing, beautiful, interesting, fantastical, educational and just better than my own. Smile

hmm...why do i read...

I'll let C.S.Lewis answer that for me. Quoting him,

"We read to know we are not alone."

^^^ that is why I read...:)
