I read because its usually cheap(ish) entertainment.
I like collecting things so books fit pretty well into that.
I mostly read fantasy/sci fi but i dont necessarily read for a form of escapism i just think its fun.
Why do you read anon?

>> No.13800764

To escape from the hell that is reality

I picked up reading recently because I don't want to be a loner who plays video games in his room all day anymore. I want to be more like a human being ought to be.

That's incredibly relative.
I tell people that I'm partially blind and though that's legally true without my corrective lenses, I can read a book fine, I just have a terrible attention span.
However, I don't do anything else except look up imagery when listening to audiobooks.
