Millions of people read everyday, but why? Some people do it for entertainment, others for discussion. Some just for information, or because they have to. Either way everyone has to do it at some point. There are so many reasons particular reasons why we read. I believe each of us have a slightly different reason. I personally read for a few reasons. I read sometimes for humor and entertainment. Other times its to understand an to get more ideals for myself. Others I like the emotions attached to the story, and like to empathize with the text. Overall, I read to understand people better and sympathize with them. I get a connection with the characters in the story. I feel like I get to also understand the writer, too.
But I really want to know why other people read. I know what I get from it, but I don’t know what other people get from text. Guessing by how everyone thinks in different ways, I bet that means people read, understand, and like text differently, too. Which also probably explains why some people hate reading. They just don’t think in way that makes text appetizing. So help me gather why people read, by replying with why you read. I hope to gather a lot of different viewpoints.
