What do you like best about reading?

by | Sep 16, 2021 | Uncategorized | 2 comments

I finished an awesome book recently—The Last Bookshop in London by Madeline Martin. It has left a unique impression on me with all of the truisms about books and readers. A question in the book from one character to another is “What do you like best about reading?” This question in the novel comes from a non-reader to someone who devours books as an avid pastime. I loved the question so much that I posed it on a social media group. The answers were inspiring and as individualized as the individual.

How do you answer that question?

There is no way I could give just one answer. I’ll satisfy your curiosity or spark your own list with a few of mine:

** adventure

** love story

** information

** historical journey

** dreams

** fairytale life

** royalty

** heroes and heroines

** reality check

** inspiration

** second chances

** mystery

** escape

** entertainment

** relaxation

Maybe I left a few for you to consider. Why do you read? Let me know in a comment.

Blessings and happy reading!

    I read as an escape as well as a way to learn about other times and places. Thank you for sharing. God bless you.

    I read to escape from my daily life and to live another story through a book. I read to be amazed a what a person can create with words. I am currently reading “ Aristotle and Dante discover the secrets of the universe” by Benjamin Saenz – fantastic!
