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!

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...:)
