What I love about reading is that it let's me go to another world just to use my imagination.  [ send green star]  [ accepted]
 
I just love storytelling. December 19, 2006 8:58 PM

I enjoy "meeting" people (characters) and I especially love reading about things that could almost happen. Like fantasy books about other worlds similar to ours, but different in the use of magic. The characters, even the elves, dwarves, etc., are so human, you think they could be real. But then one casts a spell, and you remember it's not quite our world.  [ send green star]  [ accepted]
 
Books and Reading December 31, 2006 11:27 AM

have many things for me. I am always surprised to find some form of insight into life and nature, no matter what kind of book I read. I enjoy the adventures I could never experience in my own life. I enjoy the way a mystery or detective novel works with the clues - logic and observance come into play and remind me to be aware of all that goes on around me, as so much is more than meets the eye. Information and a picture is drawn of times past that helps to show me life then and now, and no matter when we live people are the same regardless of their lifestyle. I am not a lover of pedantic books that seems to fill a lot of pages with words that take forever to get to a point if they even have one, life has become too short for me to spend time trying to figure out what they are trying to say. A good, fast moving one, filled with action often has far more to say about life and the world around me, at the same time being very enteraining and exciting to read. I read to relax and let the day's distractions go. I read because I just love books.  [ send green star]  [ accepted]
