15 Reasons To Read

There are many reasons why I read and maybe even more reasons why you read.

By no means is this an extensive list. Just the ones I could think of off the top of my head. Also, the list is in no particular order.

I read:

  1. To pass time.
  2. To escape real life.
  3. To lose myself in a story.
  4. To learn about different cultures, ideas, etc.
  5. To have fun.
  6. To be inspired.
  7. To practice empathy.
  8. To cure my boredom.
  9. To relax and unwind.
  10. To improve my writing.
  11. To remember I’m not alone.
  12. To give my body a break.
  13. To stimulate my mind.
  14. To encounter new characters and worlds.
  15. To get away from screens and technology.

Why do you read? Feel free to answer that question silently. Or loudly. Do as you please.
